Boy does SouthBridge Smell Good
SouthBridge, the cool urban district along the Arizona Canal, is heating up with all the cooking going on. In addition to staples like Cowboy Ciao, Digestif and Kazmierz Wine Bar, check out these updates and openings:
Fred Unger’s restaurants announce plans for fall season:
Metro Brasserie, a friendly neighborhood eatery featuring New Orleans-style fare, plans Monday night “Pique-Nique d-ete” wine dinners beginning in August. The savory Plates de Deux (affordable daily cuisine specials for two) will change with the bounty of the autumn season and guests will be able to enjoy live music on “Stetson Park” from the restaurant’s outdoor patio.
Estate House, the beautiful multi-level dinner house with terraces overlooking the waterfront, will begin offering lunch service in September. Monthly wine dinners (featuring fine wineries such as Far Niente, Silver Oak and others) will also be offered in the fall. The restaurant’s casual uptown city lounge, Upstairs, will continue its popular Wine on Wednesday’s Happy Hour and plans live entertainment nightly.
