Well how very timely of our Hot Sheet to have just posted about the oh-so-loved Postino (original location) the same week that Postino central open. They were very creative with the name; Postino central is actually on Central Ave. (read: accessible by light rail) and serves the fresh-out-of-downtown crowd as well as the sprawling-ranch-home neighbors.
With being the second night it was open, I thought there would be kinks to work out, but no – the staff is from the original Postino, the same great menu has made it’s way over (remember those bruschettas?), the flowers, the candles, it’s all here.
With accented patio space. The indoor/outdoor bar, reaching onto the bigger patio, are happy considerations they made to us thin-blooded Phoenicians. We love our patios.
The night I was there, even with all thebuzz about it, there was only a ten minute wait but it was always busy. Give it a go, if you’re in the neighborhood or not, at least to say Cheers and Welcome to the Hood!
5144 N. Central Ave., just north of Camelback.
