Editor's Note: The grand opening of Z'Tejas Southwestern Grill has been pushed back to June 18.
Z’Tejas Southwestern Grill has announced the grand opening of its Scottsdale location on June 18 located in the Mercado del Lago plaza at 8300 N. Hayden Road, suite D-101.
The fully renovated 3,500 square-foot space, with 35-foot-high ceilings, showcases Z’Tejas’ new look and feel, according to a press release. The sleek, modern design boasts an open dining room with a large bar as the focal point.
Two hand-painted murals flank the bar depicting scenes of Arizona and Austin, where the restaurant was founded.
Two sliding garage doors allow for easy flow between the dining room and the 2,200 square-foot patio with lake views and access to the Indian Bend Wash Greenbelt park. A private dining room with a chef’s table will be available for special dinners and events.
“We are thrilled to open our doors after a long renovation and planning period,” said Robby Nethercut, chief operations officer at Z’Tejas. “We put a lot of thought into the design with the community in mind. We look forward to treating our guests to incredible food, drinks and indulgent service.”
The chef-driven menu has been updated to coincide with this opening and features dishes inspired by the Southwest and Mexico like Tamale with Carnitas, Santa Fe Enchiladas, Chicken Fried Steak and Diablo Pasta. A new breakfast/brunch menu will also be served daily and feature Kahlua and agave French Toast, Capitol Beef Barbacoa Omelet and Carnitas Chilaquiles.
To celebrate the grand opening, Z’Tejas has partnered with HonorHealth Foundation and will donate 20% of sales from the grand opening day to the Foundation.
With the new restaurant location in close proximity to Z’Tejas’ Phoenix location, the company has announced that it will close the restaurant on Tatum Boulevard. The last day of service will be May 23.
“It was a difficult decision to decide to close the Phoenix location that involved many factors,” said Mr. Nethercut. “We worked hard to keep it open but were ultimately not able to. We hope our loyal guests will come visit the new location not far away.”
The Scottsdale location will serve breakfast daily beginning at 9 a.m. until noon during the week and from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Lunch, dinner and daily happy hour specials will be served. The restaurant will be open Sunday through Thursday until 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday closing at 10 p.m.
