Inland Tavern is a bold new eatery and IT spot with 20 beers on tap, craft cocktails, a wide wine selection and a tantalizing chef-driven international menu, poised to bring the unique flavors and flare of the coast to inland North County San Diego.
San Diego native Peter Zacarias, who helped open The W downtown, developed the notion of Inland Tavern with the eagerness of a 15 year-old boy at coed summer camp. The concept: a modern beach-away-from-beach culture for good food-starved inland dwellers. In May, the audacious drummer-turned-F&B guru teamed up with his pal, seasoned international chef Rob Conaway, for the task, and, voila! a hotspot destined to be the culinary heartbeat of San Marcos.
“Our goal is to create a place that has that great raw, rock coastal vibe with exceptional food and drinks,” said Zacarias. “International flavors, a modern interior, the right music: it’s kind of one big ball of fun.”
