Bink's Midtown
No, it isn't your St. Patrick's Day hangover messin' with your head: Bink's Midtown, the restaurant from James Beard Award-nominated chef Kevin Binkley, will open this week in the former Sophie's Bistro space on Osborn.

And (bonus), the offerings from the chef-owner of the sophisticated Binkley's Restaurant, in Cave Creek, and the more casual Café Bink, in Carefree, are affordable.

The Republic reports Bink's Midtown's opening night will be Wednesday, March 20, (dinner-only until March 25) with Binkley's Restaurant sous chef Justin Olsen heading up the kitchen.

With ingredients sourced from local farmers, Bink's Midtown menu is a tight, veggie-heavy listing of mostly small plates along with starters, soups, salads, and entrees all under 20 bucks (see menu below).

There also are desserts like a butternut-squash ice cream pop, chocolate puddin' cake, and, the Republic reports, "a tangelo 'soup' frozen tableside with liquid nitrogen."

The relaxed bistro-style space, which seats roughly around 100 people, features a patio, a re-finished floor, and new lighting and dining furniture.

The food better be great because I sure don't see any ambiance in the decor!

Yes! Just in time for my visit to Phoenix. And didn't Scratch on Roosevelt recently open too?
