January Restaurant Openings and Closings in Metro Phoenix
The first month of 2014 was full of new beginnings for restaurant owners around the Valley. Last month, we saw the opening of Payton Curry and Dave Andrea's highly anticipated Taco Haus and welcomed several new restaurants to the booming dining scene in the Arcadia neighborhood.

"A fusion of the indigenous Inca with influences from its Spanish, Asian, Italian, French, and African immigrants, the food of the South American country has landed in midtown at a new restaurant called El Chullo."
"After a decade of good times, Salty Señorita closed its doors in November -- no, not for good but in order to relocate up the street to offer fans of the cantina and bar a renovated look and overhauled menu."
"Less than a week after Evening Entertainment Group announced its plans to open a new restaurant concept inside one half of the former home Axis-Radius, Bottled Blonde Pizzeria and Beer Garden opened its doors for a grand opening event."
"ASU alum Laura Pich has opened a juice bar, The WELL, on Arizona State's Tempe campus."
"Foosia, a "fresh, exotic, and healthy" fast-casual eatery where customers can watch their food being prepared Chipotle-style, is opening Monday, January 13, in North Scottsdale."
"To those lamenting the lack of decent ramen in the Valley, take note: Yatai Ramen.
The Valley's newest food truck, its name meaning a Japanese street food cart, is getting ready to hit the streets in the next few weeks. And owner Mark Kondo says it's about time."
