La Bocca and Modern Margarita coming to Chandler
La Bocca and Modern Margarita are coming to Chandler! We first heard they were coming to The Row, which was a development to be anchored by Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in downtown Chandler. But after over a year delay, ground not broken, the Alamo Drafthouse moving to another Chandler location (read our blog about that here), and both restaurants being sold, we thought we had also lost La Bocca and Modern Margarita. However, it has been announced that La Bocca and Modern Margarita are coming to downtown Chandler after all. Both restaurants will occupy the space that was Coach & Willies sports bar on the southeast corner of Arizona Avenue and Boston.
La Bocca Urban Kitchen + Wine Bar , which has two other locations (one on Mill Avenue in Tempe and the other at High Street in North Phoenix), is known for its Mediterranean and Italian-inspired menu that includes everything from hummus to prosciutto and fig bruschetta to pizza. The wine bar also offers more than 150 wines from around the world and a cocktail menu.
Modern Margarita, which has one other location at High Street in North Phoenix, is an “urban taco and tequila bar” that serves tacos, nachos, salads, and burgers, as well as a dozen different varieties of margaritas.
Construction has already begun to divide the space for the two restaurants. La Bocca and Modern Margarita are slated to open late spring.
