Parlor Chef Jared Porter Opening Modern Noodle and Dumpling House in Central Phoenix
The executive chef of the Parlor, the gourmet pizzeria in Central Phoenix owned by father-and-son-team Dan and Aric Mei (the two also also own Nello's in Ahwatukee), is leaving his home of four years on September 1 to start a new venture -- and he's taking his sous chef, Joe Absolor, with him as co-owner and co-chef.
According to the restaurant's Instagram page, Clever Koi will take "a modern approach on the classic noodle and dumpling house."
Porter's being tight-lipped about the details but promises to have more soon.
