PHOENIX — The Epicenter at Agritopia in Gilbert added another dining option to its growing lineup Wednesday as it was announced a Mediterranean concept would open at the mixed-use development this spring.

Source restaurant and market is a partnership between Thai Chili 2 Go founder Akshat Sethi and Chef Claudio Urciuoli of Palaphx in Phoenix, according to a press release, and will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The restaurant joins Buck & Rider, Spinato’s Pizzeria and Family Kitchen, Matt’s Big Breakfast, Belly Kitchen & Bar and Gadzooks as places to eat at the development on the northwest corner of Higley and Ray roads.

The menu of Source focuses on flavors of the Mediterranean and will feature sandwiches, salads, pizza and a variety of mezze, tapas and Venetian-style cicchetti, according to the release.

Natural wines will also be available at the fast-fine dining concept, in addition to a retail market that has house-made breads and other items to go.

“We are honored to share our passion for serving high-quality food that is both delicious and nutritious through Source,” Sethi said in the release.

“We meticulously source our ingredients from a network of farmers, fishers, producers and other purveyors that exemplify our ethos.”

A variety of traditional techniques and methods will be used to prepare the food, such as steel plancha cooking, steaming, braising, fermentation and baking with naturally leavened stone-ground whole grains, according to the release.

The Epicenter at Agritopia also has various shopping and wellness options, in addition to a residential section with 320 apartments above the businesses.

We want to hear from you.
