Scottsdale Station at Village at Hayden Has Closed
It's been a rough year for restauranteurs Robert and Linda Gabrick. In October they were forced to close their nine-year-old restaurant Carefree Station and now, less than six months after opening, their new restaurant Scottsdale Station has also shuttered.
The 8,200 square-foot restaurant opened at 8220 North Hayden Road in The Village at Hayden in late November. It served an eclectic menu that offered such dishes as Crab Bread Pudding, Moroccan Chicken, and Texas Rubbed Ribeye and offered diners a multiple private dining areas and 100-seat bar.
Last October the Gabricks closed their popular Carefree restaurant after a problems with their landlord and issues with the poor condition of the Spanish Village where the restaurant was located. At the time of that restaurant's demise the couple sent out a lengthy email to e-mail addressed to their "Carefree friends" that explained the reasons closure and addressed multiple rumors surrounding the event.
Scottsdale Station was intended to be a revival of the Carefree restaurant with Carefree Station's former executive chef Thomas Nasworthy serving as Corporate Executive Chef at the new spot.
The Gabricks also own a restaurant in Prescott, Ariz.
