Happy birthday, Donnie!
By Jade Arroyo
Despite its growth in recent years, San Miguel’s community is a still a very close one. People know each other, at least by sight, greet one another while walking on the street and run into each other at parties and events. Living in this town, we often move within a very small circle, with friends and acquaintances in common.
A man who has many dear friends and friends in common with a lot of others is Donnie Masterton, chef and owner of The Restaurant.
On October 10 Masterton, the kind cook/DJ born under the sign of Libra, celebrated his birthday. People of all ages gathered at The Restaurant for a night of burgers (this was Thursday, burger night), mescal shots, margaritas, a donkey-shaped piñata and, finally, a cake with 44 candles.
The Restaurant is one of the most contemporary places to eat in Centro in San Miguel. This unpretentious restaurant serves up global comfort food for lunch and dinner. The menu is created around seasonal ingredients, focusing on the fine quality and freshness of foods, and its bar at the back is a great place to get to know people. Give it a try—and again, happy birthday Donnie!
