PHOENIX — Bar Pesce in Phoenix will close at the end of the month.

"It's bittersweet to close Bar Pesce after seven years, but it was an amazing ride," said Chef Campbell in a statement released Tuesday. "Thank you to all of our customers for making it a wonderful seven years, we appreciate all the love."

The restaurant will close on July 30, 2019.

Chef Campbell opened his restaurant as Crudo in 2012 near 36th Street and Indian School Road in Phoenix. Last October, Chef Campbell re-branded the Italian restaurant as Bar Pesce, changed the interior, and added dishes inspired by Japan, Vietnam and South America.

For the next week, the restaurant will have different events and specials to "[celebrate] the ride," according to a news release.

  • Tuesday, July 23: The restaurant will have sushi and crudo tapas paired with wine in the bar area, plus music from classic vinyl records. This event runs 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 24: The restaurant will have "The Week of Crudo" with 3-, 4-, and 5-course "tasting menus" for $30, $40, and $50, respectively.
  • Thursday, July 25: The restaurant will host its final "Tacos & Riesling" night with fish, pigs head, and potato tacos paired with wine. This is available in the bar only from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
  • Monday, July 29: The restaurant will have a "Pizza and PetNat" party featuring Cassie Shortino (Tratto) and Jacob Anderson (Nelson's Meat + Fish) with pizzas, antipasti, and sparkling wine.
