Just over a year after reopening in Tempe, Orange Table appears to have closed for good. The restaurant has not been open since early December, its website has been taken down, and during several attempts to call the restaurant we've not yet been able to get an answer.
The restaurant, which was located at 203 East Seventh Street in Tempe, was the second iteration of the breakfast and lunch spot. The original restaurant was located at 7373 East Scottsdale Mall in Scottsdale, until being sold to new owners in July 2014, who quickly rebranded the restaurant as Park Place Bar & Grill. Orange Table's original owners announced plans to reopen the restaurant in Tempe a few months later.
Though Orange Table was once a popular breakfast and brunch spot in Old Town Scottsdale, prized for its tucked-away location and unique dishes like chimmichurri hash, the Tempe restaurant opened amid a flood of eateries looking to set up shop not far from the Arizona State University campus. The College Avenue corridor off which the restaurant was located also is home to Snooze, an AM Eatery; Nocawich; and Postino.
