​On the heels of opening Postino East in Gilbert, the team behind the three-restaurant mini-chain in addition to Windsor/Churn have announced plans for a new restaurant in North Central Phoenix.

"The neighborhood and community that surrounds the area is so special," Bailey tells me, "and we could not pass up an opportunity to do something great in such a historically significant space."

The two-couple team of Lauren and Wyatt Bailey and Craig and Kris DeMarco will use the historic Al Beadle building at 5210 North Central Avenue in Phoenix (just north of Camelback Road) as the location for the new restaurant, which they hope to open late this year. Named for the modernist architect who worked in Phoenix in the 1950s, the building originally housed the First Federal Savings & Loan Bank.

Bailey tells me the team is in the process of coming up with ideas for what the new restaurant will be, but have agreed to used the word federal in the name given the former building's occupant.

Since it is a wine-focused bistro...call it Federal Reserve!

"The neighborhood and community that surrounds the area is so special." ?? If that's true and you feel that way, why have you screwed us all in that neighborhood and community by building restaurant after restaurant with no parking or noise abatement concerns? How about showing some care for the neighborhood by spending a dime on getting a parking lot other on historic residential streets? Windsor has been a disaster for those living on Oregon Avenue - now here comes another restaurant with no parking?

How are they going to install a restaurant in the historic district?  The building is right next door  to private houses zoned as single family residential/Historic District.

I vote for just keeping the name "First Federal".  I think that would be a great name for a restaurant/lounge.  Can't wait to see how it unfolds.  Good luck all!

Of course, if Phoenicians could countenance the possibility of walking more than 200 feet down a city sidewalk, a lot of the parking pressure in that area could be relieved by people taking advantage of the light rail park and ride area on the southwest corner of Central and Camelback.

Um, every building there on Central is a commercial property, including the two other restaurants they operate (in the historic districts) directly across the street and two doors down on the same side of the street.  There's also another restaurant that operates directly next door, and in fact shares a parking lot with the building in question..

Anyway, I, for one, welcome them as another great addition to the best area in the city!
