New York, April 29 (IANS) Actor Anthony Mackie is expanding his restaurant business by opening a Cuban restaurant here. He says that it is his back up plan.
The 34-year-old actor, who is happy to have a hobby apart from acting, came into the business when he opened his first venture NoBar BKNY in Crown Heights here.
“I’m opening a Cuban bistro in Williamsburg… We’re going to have the best mojitos outside of Cuba, we’re going to take raw sugarcane, crush it down and make mojitos. We’re gonna have gangster-grilled chicken with fresh mango, beans and rice,” contactmusic.com quoted Mackie as saying.
He added: “You know this acting thing, man, it’s a dangerous hustle, so I never know when my time (is) up, so I got to stack my chips. I might have to go back to the streets!”
The actor was seen in “The Hurt Locker”.
