Buddha’s Ritual is the product of collaboration between Scott and Melissa McIntire, co-owners of MAC Entertainment Group; “Joey Boy” Rodriguez, host of the Morning Mess; and Freddy Nguyen, a local entrepreneur. The McIntires are behind The Ainsworth in DTPHX and The Lola at Westgate.

You can expect Asian-American fusion cuisine like Buddha’s Benny’s with crispy pork belly, pho, ramen, and kimchi mac and cheese and grilled cheese. Stone brick oven pizzas are also on the menu for the new spot, which will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The dining experience will be indoor/outdoor with the SOHO space featuring garage doors and an expansive patio. A fire pit, lawn games, and a large bar with a strong cocktail program are reported amenities.

SOHO Scottsdale is a live/work community designed by Bing Hu, Fitzgerald Associates, and Catclar Investments. It’s currently in the second phase of construction, which should bring 28 new Townhouses, 18 Luxury Lofts, and 4 penthouses to the area.
