As restaurants continue to open in the Phoenix area rarely do you see a chef driven restaurant venture to open inside an office park. The owners of TRES Restaurant may be starting a new trend as they will open their restaurant this fall in Tempe’s Discovery Office Park off Loop 101 & Guadalupe Rd.
Most office park food are grab and go for coffee, breakfast and lunch and close after the lunch rush. TRES will be extending the day and expect office workers, neighbors and foodies to come by for lunch and dinner by offering fresh and vibrant quick bites and full meals.
Executive Chef Steve Zimmerman said, “We are combining traditional and familiar southwestern and Mexican flavors with the light, healthy and popular dishes found in the Mediterranean region. It’s a very unique menu that will appeal to so many of our neighbors’ palates.”
The menu is inspired by the wood burning oven as the primary method of cooking in the restaurant. The lunch menu at TRES will showcase small, medium and large plates that will include diverse ingredients and foods including….
- AZ Tepary Bean Hummus with QCOM Olives, local feta, tomato vierge, EVOO, and flatbread ($7)
