It's not over yet, folks.

Cycle, the pop-up venue inside the Lexington Hotel in downtown Phoenix that's shutting its doors on August 27th, when the restaurant and hotel will transform itself into a boutique, arts-driven hotel and restaurant, has added one more event to its expiring venue lineup.

On Friday and Saturday, August 26 and 27, acclaimed chef Mel Mecinas of Talavera restaurant and the dining properties at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale will go gastropub. Called "TEN600," Mecinas and his sous chef Jesse Hansen will serve up high-end gastropub fare including korabuta pork meatloaf sliders, artichoke-crab fondue, braised pork belly, and a chocolate brownie sundae in a jar.

Mecinas' menu can be explored a la carte, or enjoyed as a 3-course affair. For the full menu and where to make reservations, follow the jump.
