When a new spot opens in town, we can't wait to check it out -- and let you know our initial impressions, share a few photos, and dish about some menu items. First Taste, as the name implies, is not a full-blown review, but instead a peek inside restaurants that have just opened, sampling a few items, and satisfying curiosities (yours and ours).
Restaurant: Mother Bunch Brewery Location: 825 N. 7th Street Open: Less than a week Eats: Elevated bar fare Price: $25+ per person
Breweries are popping up all around town these days and while some make great beer, not all are the kind of place where you want to eat, drink, and generally be merry. Luckily that's not the case with Mother Bunch Brewing, a microbrewery and restaurant that recently opened on Roosevelt Row.
It will still be a few weeks until Mother Bunch is tapping its own brews, but this is a microbrewery with much more to offer than just beer. It offers a comfortable atmosphere, friendly service, and an impressive menu of elevated bar fare -- all of which we're happy to enjoy, at least for now, with a pint of another Arizona brewery's beer.
