Chef Renetto-Mario Etsitty of Tertio Winebar on Slow Food and His First Friday Banquets

Renetto-Mario Etsitty Tertio 3508 N. 7th Street

This is part one of our interview with Renetto-Mario Etsitty, chef at Tertio Wine Bar in Phoenix. Today, he dishes on the history of Navajo Kneel Down bread and the semi-secret First Friday feasts he's been serving for the past five years. Don't forget to come back Tuesday for part two when he tells us his favorite place for late-night dining and where you can view his art (that's right, he's also an artist with a fine arts degree from ASU), right now.
