Heads up, outdoor lounge-y types; "Arizona's Hottest New Patio" opens in Tempe today.
|Tempe's Front Porch|
- Bink's Midtown Is a Must (Especially When It Comes to Veggies)
- New Restaurant Opens at Chase Field: Think Barbecue, Sandwiches Wrapped in Tape Measures, and the "Hottest Wings in Baseball"
Featuring seating for 130, three fire pits, a bar, food, and a backdrop of Tempe Beach Park and Tempe Town Lake, the new patio, called Tempe's Front Porch, is located at 100 South Mill Avenue.
The address, interestingly enough, happens to be the same as Monti's La Casa Vieja, the oldest restaurant in Tempe. Which makes sense because Tempe's Front Porch is Monti's La Casa Vieja. The 2,000-square-foot patio of Monti's La Casa Vieja. With a different name. For some reason. Who knows? The world is a confusing place.
Is it too late to offer up "Monti's Front Porch" or, hell, can we just say, "Hey, Monti's now has a patio"?
Sadly, yes. But it seems there's an explanation behind the new concept. More »
