The Paisley Violin - Closed

1030 Grand Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85007 | Central Phoenix | 602-254-7843

Location Description:

Temporarily closed: Gina and Derrick Suarez's quirky bohemian bistro is a comfortably cool spot that contains creative endeavors of every shape and size. Situated along Grand Avenue, it's a mecca of Mediterranean and Euro-style edibles served up in an ultra-arty atmosphere accented by a constantly revolving collection of photos, paintings, and sculptures. Boutique wines such as Trinity Oaks and Raw Power are on the menu alongside such microbrews as Shipyard Chamberlain and Odell Five Barrel. Paisley's calendar of weekly events is also quite eclectic, ranging from the sci-fi movie night on Mondays to live sessions by street musicians and indie bands on the weekend. "Peace and happiness all in one," it promises, and the Violin delivers, with a lovingly crafted menu of homemade plates like hummus, stuffed vine leaves, Italian panini, a pastrami sandwich, plus lox and capers. Beer, wine and liquor are available.
