Last night we got a taste of the latest venture from Tommy Plato, who owns the four-store mini-chain of Gelato Spots in the Valley. Above the Old Town Scottsdale location of Gelato Spot, Plato's built an intimate restaurant with a cool retro vibe. Plato describes this new spot as "Mad Men-inspired" and story-driven, which means you can expect an impressive lineup of classic cocktails that compliment (if not outshine) the menu of well-composed food.

Called the Second Story Liquor Bar the restaurant and cocktail lounge stars the talents of chef Josh Bracher and "Whiskey Man" John Christie, whom you might already know from his time at the now-closed Old Town Whiskey at The Saguaro Hotel.

An Eritrean coffee ceremony at A.T. Oasis Coffee and Tea in Phoenix.
There are quite a few good places to grab a cup of coffee in central Phoenix but none quite like A.T. Oasis Coffee and Tea Shop, located just east of 46th Street and Thomas.

The 10-month old shop is owned by Aisha Tedros -- originally from Eritrea, just north of Ethiopia -- and serves coffee, speciality espresso drinks, smoothies, as well as a small selection of food including sandwiches, salads, and a few Africa and Middle Eastern dishes. But more interesting that than is that Tedros also imports green coffee beans directly from Ethiopia and distributes them to several of the Valley's well-known and most respected coffee shops.
