The name is not quite set in stone, but owner Cheryl Vitale feels pretty confident that her new Ahwautukee restaurant will be called Los Dos Cocina y Cantina. She's currently in lease negotiations to move into the old Va Bene space at 4025 E. Chandler Blvd.
Expect the same spicy New Mexican cuisine that made Los Dos an institution, along with Vitale's "wild hair specials" -- whatever recipe strikes her fancy, from mahi mahi tacos, to chile Colorado.
