First Taste

Taberna Mexicana in Scottsdale

Scottsdale Seville welcomed a new tenant last month, with the opening of Taberna Mexicana. Partners Niel Morgan, Chase Morgan and Chris Harter launched this upscale destination for modern Mexican cuisine in the same location that used to house Roy's. While executive chef Alex Padilla, native of Mexico City and classically trained French chef, was responsible for crafting a menu that celebrates mainland Mexican food with a modern twist. (Opposed to the tacos and tequila that characterizes just-south-of-the-border Sonoran Mexican food.)
