PHOENIX — A wood-fired restaurant from the group behind the popular Maple & Ash steakhouse is set to open in the Scottsdale Quarter next month.

Reservations are being accepted online for the opening of Etta on April 6 in the former BRIO location at 15301 N. Scottsdale Road, according to a press release.

The restaurant will be open daily from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Menu items include wood-fired pizzas and chicken, fire-roasted whole branzino and oysters, as well as freshly made focaccia, house-made pastas and fresh salads.

“We are thrilled to be opening another restaurant in Scottsdale,” Danny Grant, two-time Michelin-star chef and partner in ownership group What If Syndicate, said in the release. “This market has been incredibly supportive of us.

“Many know us for what we’ve done over at Maple & Ash the past few years. Our new etta location at Scottsdale Quarter has a similar energy and vibe, but it’s a wood-fired restaurant with more of a neighborhood feel.”

Some of Grant’s signature dishes will also be available on the menu, including bubbling shrimp, ricotta pillows and Sunday sauce meatballs.

The 8,000-square-foot, single-story restaurant will feature an outdoor patio and an indoor trellis to create a garden-like atmosphere.

Etta has two Chicago locations and another in Southern California.

There are plans to open two Etta restaurants each in Texas and Florida this year, along with another Southern California site next year.

Maple & Ash, the group’s first restaurant, opened in 2019.

We want to hear from you.
