New Dining & Shopping Options at The Promenade
In the last few years, my neighborhood of Chandler/Gilbert has been exploding. It seems as though every week I am learning about a new spot opening or an already existing area of interest expanding. When we first moved to the area 7ish years ago there wasn’t much of note as far as restaurants were concerned. This has all made a rapid change in the last few years and my little family could not be more delighted. As someone whose sole purpose and career is based on supporting local businesses, this has been a delight to watch.
Recently there has been a lot of activity at The Promenade at Fulton Ranch in Chandler. The recent opening of Cuisine & Wine Bistro’s second location was something that we were so excited to hear about and be a part of. The original location is much closer to my home, however, the idea that they were expanding was representative of their success and popularity, and there is no family more deserving. Don’t just take my word for it, they were recently named the top wine bar in Arizona.
Cuisine & Wine Bistro at The Promenade
Cuisine & Wine Bistro’s Chandler restaurant serves meat and cheese boards, salads, bruschettas, steaks, salmon, mahi-mahi, duck, and desserts, in addition to wine and cocktails in a stunning 3,000-square-foot location. Chef Fabrice Buschtetz and his wife, Mairead, launched Cuisine & Wine in Chandler after buying the former MWC Bistro in Gilbert last year.
“Our second location is doing very well at the Promenade at Fulton Ranch,” said Mairead Buschtetz. “We chose to open our restaurant in the Promenade because you want to work with people who do their job well.”
The bistro is a family-run business that includes Fabrice as chef and son Killian managing the front end. Mairead said the Promenade location, which offers diners a private dining room, is about to release a new winter menu. Chef Fabrice is known for his sumptuous sauces, and diners are encouraged to try Fabrice’s world-renowned escargots.
“Once people try our restaurant, they always come back,” Mairead added.
Global Tea Mart Joins The Promenade
While visiting The Promenade, whether for a little holiday shopping or catching a bite to eat, make sure to visit the new Global Tea Mart, which offers premium loose leaf, tea sachets and fine tea gifts from around the world. Owner Diane Eddy said few people know just how diverse tea really is and invites shoppers to choose from among their extensive collection of premium international teas, ranging from the well-known to the very exotic.
First Watch at The Promenade
If you’re out and about early, make sure to start out with a healthy and hearty breakfast. Florida-based First Watch recently announced the acquisition of The Good Egg, a favorite Promenade breakfast spot. There will be no interruption in business as part of the transaction.
“Combining The Good Egg with First Watch represents a true strategic alignment and will provide our delicious concept with the necessary resources to continue to grow and serve the community,” said original Good Egg owner Charlie Syburg.
Another welcome addition to The Promenade is Medmetrics Pharmacy, a compounding pharmacy that specializes in compounding bio-identical hormones, dermatology products, and veterinary or pet medications as well as traditional prescription services.
