More Details on the Pink Pony's Comeback
Last week, I was thrilled to share the tidbit about The Pink Pony reopening soon.
Now, proprietor Tom Cook tells me there's an opening date: February 12, the same day as Parada del Sol. The bar will be open to the public that day, while the restaurant will host invited guests.
New owners Danny Little and Tim Smith bought the business in the hopes of preserving a historic landmark and perhaps reveling in nostalgia a bit -- Smith, an Arcadia native, recalls celebrating birthdays there since he was 5.
Meanwhile, chef Eric Guerin -- who's worked at The Mission, Zinc, El Chorro, and Roaring Fork during the Robert McGrath era -- heads up the kitchen.
What can we expect from this refreshed incarnation of what was Scottsdale's longest-running restaurant when it succumbed to the recession in 2009?
