Faz Pouroshi, the original opening chef of MacArthur Park Palo Alto in 1981, put his award-winning ribs on the map cooking his heart out behind the line at the restaurant.
In March of 2008 he approached Chuck Frank, one of the owners of the original restaurant to purchase the space. Frank was already on top of it and together they formed a partnership to renew, revitalize and reboot the historical landmark space.
Historian and author Barbara Wilcox's book explores history of the MacArthur Park Restaurant building. The subject and title of Barbara’s book is “World War I Army Training by San Francisco Bay: The Story of Camp Fremont”.
“As the most distinguished artifact of that history, Julia Morgan’s landmark building is a suitable place to honor the engineers, nurses, technicians, drivers and many others who worked not only to win a war but to bring modernity to America”, says Barbara.
