The vacated Stingray Sushi along Scottsdale Road will soon have a new tenant.

Located along Scottsdale Road near Sixth Avenue in Old Town Scottsdale, Farm & Craft will offer guests a healthy menu focused on gluten-free, organic and hormone-free ingredients.

It is the latest project from Riot Hospitality Group (RHG), which has brought El Hefe, Dierk's Bentley's Whiskey Row and Hand Cut to the Valley.

"The idea is to offer healthy food in a creative and innovative way that not only tastes good, but serves the greater community," said Ryan Hibbert, CEO of RHG, in a media release, which was sent out on Tuesday.

In the morning, the restaurant will be fast-casual. At night, it will turn into a full-service restaurant.

Menu items are said to include blueberry protein pancakes, an organic hummus protein power salad, and flaxseed flatbread. They will also offer Kombucha, local beers, wine and pressed juice.

The "Wellness Menu" will focus on increasing people's daily probiotic intake, boosting the immune system, reducing stress and enhancing an antioxidant diet, said Hibbert.

It is expected to open in June.

The group is also planning to open a second location in Gilbert's Heritage Market in the space directly behind Zinburger. That location is expected to open in December 2016, said Hibbert.
