Lyte Lounge gives tapas a healthful spin
Business partners Jason Slocum and Robert Burghart have teamed up with executive chef Justin Chacon for a new dining concept that's set to open in Scottsdale next Friday, March 7: Lyte Lounge & Bistro.
You might remember Chacon from his Best of Phoenix-winning restaurant in Cave Creek, Justin's Ragin' Cajun Cuisine, which sadly disappeared from the scene a few years ago. Since then, Chacon's been an executive chef at Blue Wasabi and Hammerhead Jack's, and most recently, worked on the launch of Sutra Sushi.
Chacon's light, healthful menu is geared to the busy night owl who's craving fuel to dance 'til dawn. That means smaller, tapas-sized portions, no wheat or gluten, and lots of raw-veggie ingredients. Selections include green curry gumbo, grilled turkey with mushroom ratatouille and veggie puree, shrimp with mango jicama slaw, and seared lobster tail with yam bisque and rice cakes.
Besides the food, there will be nightly DJ and live music performances as well.
Lyte Lounge is located at 7419 E. Indian Plaza Drive in Scottsdale, in the space that previously housed Blue Note Cellars. Call 480-423-2027 for more information.
