Dino Angelo Luciano, the season 8 winner of MasterChef, has been hired to helm the kitchen of Muse and Market , an upscale casual restaurant and market under construction in Phoenix.
The restaurant will be part of The Marilyn, an office complex with rentable offices and shared workspaces, near 44th Street and Thomas Road.
Antonio Pizarro, marketing manager for the restaurant, said the restaurant will likely open in late July or early August. It is the brainchild of Laura Pich, the owner of "The Well" juice bar on Arizona State University's Tempe campus, he said.
While Pich was unavailable for an interview, Pizarro said the restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch and brunch. The menu will have a "global or world influence," he said, reflective of Luciano's Italian and Asian roots.
The marketplace will feature products and artwork from local businesses and artists, Pizarro said.
