Tapas time: The Mark has opened in the space formerly occupied by Marston's Bar & Grill in downtown SLO, and it's got Latin flavors in mind! On offer: small tacos, tamales, and premium tequila, plus an elevated ambiance. Stop by Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. (themarkslo.com) ... Thomas Hill Organics in Paso Robles has a new menu for summer, and it includes Hawaiian snapper with braised leeks; red oak fire short ribs with polenta; and duck confit with forest shrooms, risotto, and ramps (learn more at thomashillorganics.com) ... National Mac and Cheese Day is July 14, so I suggest you head directly to Black Sheep in SLO and order the mac topped with bacon, jalapeños, and tri-tip (blacksheepslo.com)! Δ
