Lots of New Local Eateries in the Works
A bunch of new Scottsdale eateries are reportedly in the works: Yellow House, a bakery and breakfast place; Iguazu, an Argentinean restaurant; Sam Fox's Culinary Dropout and Modern Steak (haven't steakhouses jumped the shark?); an Italian joint called Marcella's; and a fusion restaurant called Parc Central.
In addition are places that Chow Bella readers are already in on: chef Aaron Chamberlin's St. Francis, opening in a month near Central and Camelback; Matt Carter's Asian spot and gastropub, Nine 05 (formerly Fate) and Canteen; Hula's Modern Tiki, going in next to Lola Coffee; James Porter's Petite Maison, a French country bistro in Scottsdale; the "green concept" Calistro California Bistro at DC Ranch Crossing; Cullen Campbell and Brandon Crouser's Crudo (location TBA); Tracy Dempsey's pastry cafe Galette Dessert Bar (location TBA); and Nobuo Fukuda's new izakaya, whose name and location are still off the record . . .
