Postino, Windsor, and Churn Owners to Open Two More Concepts

Upward Projects, the group comprising Craig DeMarco, wife Kris DeMarco, and Lauren and Wyatt Bailey, hasn't officially released the information yet, but I've learned that the owners of Windsor and Churn and the three-restaurant mini-chain, Postino, are planning to open two additional concepts in the north Central Phoenix area.

The first, in the former Aiello's East Coast Italian Dining (which, according to Joe Aiello, may be relocating to One Lexington in Midtown) will be a yet-to-be-named neighborhood Mexican joint with no announced opening date.

The second, as I reported in March, will be in the historic Al Beadle building at 5210 North Central Avenue (just north of Camelback Road) and will open late this year. Named for the modernist architect who worked in Phoenix in the 1950s, the building originally housed the First Federal Savings & Loan Bank. Bailey told me the team is in the process of coming up with ideas for what the new restaurant will be (there's a rumor it might be pizza), and have agreed to used the word federal in the name given the former building's occupant.

Stay tuned for details.
