CLOSED: Dottie's True Blue Cafe in Scottsdale
Dottie's True Blue Cafe in Scottsdale, the second location of the famous 20-year-old diner in San Francisco from chef-owner Kurt Abney, has shuttered.
Opened in February of last year by Abney's brother, Brent, at 4151 North Marshall Way (in the former home of Bada Boom Pasta Room), the Scottsdale Dottie's, open for breakfast and lunch, featured the same classic American dishes as the original Dottie's -- like pancakes, scrambles, and jalapeño corn bread. Dottie's also had an in-house bakery.
An excerpt from my June 2012 review of Dottie's had this to say:
"But reputations don't always guarantee a restaurant's success, especially one more than 750 miles away. What matters most is the food, not the hype. Which is why Dottie's may not be your new favorite neighborhood hangout, but it just might have enough decent dishes that make it worth popping into on occasion -- mostly for breakfast."
