CityScape: Chef Aaron May and Mojo's Among Nine New Tenants Announced Today
Chef Aaron May serves hungry Phoenicians at the CityScape topping out press conference.
How do you get 500 Phoenicians to stand outside in the heat at 8 a.m.? If you're Cityscape, you get local chef Aaron May to make them breakfast.
May will be bringing an "Asian noodle house" and "Mexican style restaurant" to the 27-story office tower that will be the first, finished building in the three-block CityScape project. But May is just one of nine new tenants announced today at CityScape's topping out press conference.
Foodies chomping at the bit for more downtown dining options will be happy to hear that The Breakfast Club and Blu Burger Grille will take up residence in CityScape providing "a one-of-a-kind breakfast restaurant" and "unique, high-quality hamburger experience" respectively. Dessert comes in the form of frozen yogurt from Mojo and Press Coffee's caffeinated cups of joy.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and District 8 Councilman Michael Johnson were also in attendance, but no one reacted with the same amount of glee as Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon. We suspect he's a Press Coffee fan, but he was also quick to point to the significance of city growth in a troubled economy.
"No other mayor gets to do what I get to do today which is talk about new development going up," he said. "We're going for it."
