Albuquerque-based restaurant El Patron New Mexican Restaurant and Cantina has made its Arizona debut in Scottsdale, located at 8977 N Scottsdale Road, Suite 500.
The new restaurant sits in the SHOPS Gainey Village in Scottsdale, moving into the former home of Bandolero de Cocina Mexico. The Mexican restaurant has rebranded under new owners, Jimmy and Nadine Daslakos, according to Ktar News. The restaurant is now open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. The restaurant also offers happy hour all day in the bar and patio.
“After being in the restaurant business for three decades, we are thrilled to bring El Patron to Arizona,” Jimmy Daslakos said in a press release on Tuesday. “We felt the rich culinary New Mexican cuisine was a perfect addition to the food landscape in the Valley.”
Customers can expect an extensive all-day menu featuring a variety of appetizers, soups, and salads, as well as a wide selection of New Mexico-style dishes. The menu offers a wide range of options, from enchiladas to seafood and burritos, plus entrees such as baby back ribs, chile rellenos, and green chile chicken lasagna.
“Our dishes are inspired by the flavors passed down through generations,” Nadine Daslakaos said in the release. “Today, we continue to highlight those time-honored recipes, infusing them with a dash of modern flair.”
