The colorful restaurant has been opened for a few months for dinner but decided to lay low and wait until now to introduce itself to the community. Located in Scottsdale’s Entertainment District south of Camelback Rd west of Scottsdale Rd. El Panzon y Frida has a hand painted mural of Frida on the wall along with art from both artists.
