Now Open

Café Tranquilo at The Clarendon Hotel Is Now Open; Here's the New Menu

It's been a tumultuous few weeks for the restaurant at The Clarendon Hotel in Phoenix. Last week restaurant operators Doug and Denise Robson announced that Gallo Blanco, which had been located inside the hotel since 2009, would stop operations as of January 31. The closure, according to the Robsons, came as the result of a long-term dispute between their company and the hotel.

Clarendon Hotel owner Ben Bethel stated at that time that the restaurant would remain open, though under a new name and with a similar but different menu. Now he's announced the name of the hotel's new dining concept. A new menu debuted at the restaurant just yesterday.
