At least 40 new restaurants opened throughout metro Phoenix during February, according to company announcements, Phoenix Business Journal research and other media reports.
Among the new eateries in town are Americano, a contemporary Italian steakhouse concept from the people behind Pomo Pizzeria and Creation Hospitality. It’s at 17797 N. Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale.
Also in January, the long awaited Barrio Queen opened in Tempe Marketplace.
It was the second store the company opened so far this year, and the popular homegrown chain is planning to open more in the West Valley later this year.
