New chef at Estate House: Gio Osso takes over for Ron Dimas

By Michele Laudig

The word on the street is that there have been big changes at Estate House, the mansion-like fine-dining spot at SouthBridge, Fred Unger's upscale Scottsdale shopping and restaurant complex across the canal from the Scottsdale Waterfront.

Ron Dimas, the executive chef who opened the restaurant six months ago, has left, and Gio Osso, who just left Luc's, has filled his clogs, so to speak.

According to sous chef Chris Mayo, it all happened within the last week. No word yet on where Dimas is going, but it's supposedly somewhere in town.

As for the food, no changes yet to the "French-inspired wine country cuisine," although a new menu will be unveiled once Osso gets established there.
