From the General Manager – May 2015

Shadows Summer Schedule

Your 2015 Budget dictates changes in the summer hours; effective June 1, the Shadows Restaurant will only be serving lunch and dinner on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Breakfast will be served on Saturday and Sunday only. Shadows will be closed Monday through Thursday. If you have an event planned or would like to plan an event, we will be more than happy to accommodate you. Please give me a call at 760-345-4349, ext.225, so that we can discuss your arrangements.

The Montecito Café will be open during the month of June from 11-2 to see if enough residents want to keep it open during the off season. [Revised 5.23.15] The snack bar by the driving range and the bistro at Santa Rosa will keep normal hours during the summer.

These new hours will allow the new F&B Director to make the necessary changes to the operations, including properly training staff, developing a catering program, and working with the Executive Chef to create new special offerings.

We are making great strides in this department. I know the quality of the food is better, thanks to Executive Chef Cesar. Now we need to improve our service. I thank all the residents who have visited Shadows this season and I promise that, when Shadows fully opens in October, you will be happy with and proud of the food and service.
