KALEIDOSCOPE ANNOUNCES THREE NEW TENANTS COMPLETE CENTER IMPROVEMENTS IN TIME FOR SUMMER
Welcome to Summer Fun at the Kaleidoscope in Mission Viejo!
Anchor Hitch, a contemporary seafood restaurant, will be the first restaurant to debut in Union Market Mission Viejo, a dining and retail space on the upper level of Kaleidoscope. Celebrating its grand opening on Saturday, June 4, Anchor Hitch will serve lunch and dinner daily.
Using only the finest ingredients in its handcrafted Seafood and Raw Bar creations, Anchor Hitch serves most dishes family style, to encourage table interaction. Signature dishes include House Miso Clams (fresh Manila clams, mirepoix, red potatoes and Nueske bacon), Green Curried Scallop Risotto (citrus honey-glazed Hokkaido scallops, creamy green curried risotto and chopped bell peppers) and Seared Halibut (white Pacific Halibut, parsnip puree, wild foraged mushrooms, ginger, scallions, roasted corn and charred cucumber).
In late June, Tacos Cancun will bring its third Orange County location to Kaleidoscope. Tacos Cancun takes a healthy approach to authentic Mexican food, including numerous vegan and vegetarian options using meat substitutes and dairy-free alternatives. The menu also features traditional Mexican plates from generations-old family recipes, such as Carne Asada, a Machaca Burrito, homemade flan and more. Tacos Cancun at Kaleidoscope will also feature its popular Taco Bar Buffet on Tuesdays, as well as serve beer and wine.
The casual restaurant will offer dine-in, take-out and catering Sunday through Thursday from 10 am to 9 pm, and Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 10 pm. Tacos Cancun will be located on the upper level of Kaleidoscope next to Regal Cinemas.
Panini Café, a popular and fast-growing concept in Los Angeles and Orange County, will open in late 2017 next to Burke Williams Spa in a new space off Crown Valley Parkway. Known for its fresh and Mediterranean-inspired menu, Panini Café will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. The breakfast menu offers eggs, omelettes, breakfast sandwiches, French toast, espresso drinks and more. Lunch and dinner items include grilled panini sandwiches, kabobs with a choice of grilled chicken, filet, lamb or fish skewered with tomatoes and peppers, salads, and an array of Mediterranean appetizers. Panini Café will also serve select beer and wine.
Additional casual restaurants set to open this summer at Union Market Mission Viejo include:

ingredients, and a wine bar featuring eclectic and small boutique wines. Dry Society will
