The six-part series reaches its finale with a stint by Chef Michael Zafirian (Bacaro) from August 24-27th. All dishes are original Chef creations, available for the four specified days only.

The Pac Rim Patio is open to the public from Noon until 8pm, with live music Fridays and Saturdays until 8pm; Thursdays and Sundays the tunes wind down at 6pm. Find out more.
