New Restaurant Alert

I love trying new places to eat...especially when they're chic and just down right different than the normal Red Robin and Applebees. Now don't get me wrong, I love eating at those joints, but sometimes I want date night to really be date night. Remember Mabel Murphy's in Scottsdale? Well there's a new owner taking over, and I hear the place is like a NY speak-easy. I can't wait to go. Who's coming with me?

 The speakeasy-style backdoor entrance leads to a vintage dining room of antique furniture, rich leather and woods to complement the classic dishes of the era. “It was a little more special to go out [back then] because people didn’t go out every day. It was more of an event,” says May. People took extra care in going out and in turn the dishes and cocktails took a little longer to prepare, he adds. At Mabel’s, hard-to-find scotches and aged wines balance classic items such as deviled eggs with caviar, Oysters Rockefeller and Veal Oscar. The restaurant will feature a raw food bar and a private dining room for intimate celebrations complete with a secret entrance and a one-way mirror to view the rest of the dining area. May describes Mabel’s as a bit cosmopolitan, where men and women can put their cocktail dresses and retro suits to use, but can still wear whatever is comfortable. - This courtesy of 944 Magazine
