A popular Valley chef–who most recently launched Sky Harbor Airport’s Terminal Four new dining area–is set to unveil a new restaurant in Downtown Scottsdale this month. Chef Gio Osso is manning the restaurant at the Bespoke Inn, transforming the 25-seat eatery in to what he describes as “a quiet, cozy secret in Downtown Scottsdale.”
The menu at Virtù, the Machiavellian term for achieving excellence, “is definitely rooted in the Mediterranean, but I think of it as wandering Mediterranean,” Osso says. “You might see a few Asian or South American touches here and there.” The grand opening is slated for June 13.
The fine dining menu (though Osso says it won’t be “snoozy” fine dining) will be packed with mmm-inducing housemade pastas, superb seafood, new Mediterranean creations and rustic favorites. The menu is expected to change weekly.
The new restaurant will feature 30 boutique wines with nearly 15 of them poured by the glass. Virtù will seat 25 guests inside and an additional 26 on the picturesque courtyard patio.
Prior to his work at the airport, Osso gained attention for his amazing work at the now-closed Estate House in Scottsdale. www.virtuscottsdale.com.
