Native Frenchman and chef George Venezia may have lived in the Valley for several years, but he still retains a Gallic agreeability his customers adore.
And now, after running several bistros in town, including defunct Mes Amis Bistro and Bar, the congenial Venezia has opened his latest restaurant: Voilá Bistro in North Scottsdale.
Opened in late December, Venezia's Voilá Bistro, which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, will feature an "old-fashioned menu with some of France's most classic dishes."
