Italian- and Mediterranean-inspired dishes served up in a cozy, second-story neighborhood bistro in Arcadia will be no more following tonight's service: Cave & Ives Portico Grill is shuttering.

The restaurant's name was a nod to the nicknames of owners and brothers Cary and Ivan Morrow (Cary was called "Caveman" as an ASU student). The Morrows, who also own Sacks Art of Sandwicherie, opened the dinner-only eatery in April 2011 on the second floor of a blocky new structure on Indian School Road (just west of 44th Street), where Sacks occupies most of the ground floor.

Along with an inviting second-story patio (which overlooked Indian School Road and sported a view of Camelback Mountain in the distance), Cave & Ives also featured an indoor-outdoor bar stocked with numerous local beers and a balcony fireplace. Popular dishes included wood-fired oven pizzas, flatbreads, artisan cheese plates, and appetizers like clams de braise.

Owner Cary Morrow could not be reached for comment.

I was also there last night. Our waiter told us he couldn't give us a menu because they were out of a lot if things. He also said "This is our last night open." We asked why and he said its because the owners bit off more than they could chew in opening the place.

I was at Cave and Ives last night.  According to them they are not closing.  Sounds like bad information.
