PHOENIX — At least 31 new restaurants opened throughout metro Phoenix in August, according to company announcements, media reports and Phoenix Business Journal research.
Among the new eateries in town are a highly anticipated new steakhouse, Maple & Ash, near Old Town Scottsdale and a David Bowie-inspired pizzeria/pinball lounge in downtown Phoenix.
August also brought expansions for a number of popular chains around the Valley including Portillo’s Hot Dogs , BoSa Donuts and Medieval Times, which is more of an entertainment destination than a restaurant .
The Business Journal also noted at least four restaurants that shuttered during August, including the first closure at the Churchill project in downtown Phoenix.
