Chef Joseph Gutierrez, owner of Scottsdale's Cin-Cin Bistro, is moving quickly to fill the SouthBridge space still occupied by Digestif with an Italian restaurant called Tutto. He'll also bring a Spanish spot called Tapas Papa Fritas to the spot where restaurateur Peter Kasperski had planned to open Mexican Standoff.
According to the Republic, if Gutierrez' deal goes through with SouthBridge developer Fred Unger, Tutto is scheduled to open next Wednesday -- talk about fast turnaround! -- while Tapas Papa Fritas will debut by Labor Day.
Gutierrez has been on the local dining scene for years, and launched the original, defunct Tapas Papa Fritas in the '90s.
