Scottsdale's Gainey Village may have lost Bloom, the upscale eatery from Fox Restaurant Concepts whose ten-year run ended in November, but diners won't have to wait long for a new restaurant to take its place.
Cask 63 American Eatery & Wine Bar, a lunch and dinner concept from partners Jerry Tingle, formerly a general manager at Eddie V's Prime Seafood restaurants and Wildfish Seafood, and chef Brian Feirstein, ex-executive chef for Eddie V's and The Capital Grille, will debut in the old Bloom location in January.
Feirstein's menu of new American cuisine with seasonally changing offerings will include dishes like the a cornmeal oyster po-boy, goat cheese tortelli, and New York strip pepper steak. And the 6,500 square foot post-Bloom space is being updated to include new bar and lobby areas and extended outdoor seating.
"It takes 31-and-a-half gallons of wine to fill a cask, which is a generous amount that invites sharing," says Tingle on how the name Cask 63 came to be. "So we multiplied that number by two - a toast to us, two business partners who share the same vision."
