Established by James Beard award-nominated chef Silvana Salcido Esparza, Barrio Cafe Gran Reserva is a small, upscale Mexican eatery in the Grand Avenue District. The menu, most of which resembles Barrio Café’s, also features Baja California-specific items, and a tasting menu, but no tacos. Ingredients are proven fresh, as Barrio Cafe Gran Reserva has no walk-in freezer. The sunny dining area offers eight tables, or roughly 24 seats, including the two-seat bar area. Guests may enjoy scenic views of downtown Phoenix and some epic bathroom art as each restroom features full murals by artists Lalo Cota, Angel Diaz, and Pablo Luna. Diners may indulge in agave-focused cocktails like mezcal and tequila heavy drinks, and an array of impressive Mexican wines []. The Barrio Cafe Gran Reserva is open for dinner and drinks Tuesday through Friday, and earlier for lunch on Saturdays and Sundays. Walk-ins are welcome, but reservations are recommended.
