North 40 Grill

Visiting locally owned dining establishments have become more and more important to diners, so it only makes sense that the new developments in the North Peoria area would make a great home for a new, chef-driven local concept. One new concept, North 40 Grill by local restaurateur and owner Sharon Turner  is anticipated to be located in the proposed Sunrise Plaza along Lake Pleasant and Happy Valley Rd. North 40 Grill is planned to include All-American cuisine with Arizona flair and a local focus. If you’re looking for a great dining option or if you’re simply curious to see what the cuisine of the region can be, this will be a must-visit spot.

Canadian bagels are invading Arizona

To the delight of bagel fans everywhere, another great addition proposed for Sunrise Plaza is Toronto-based Bagels on Fire. This Canadian bakery serves bagels in the Montreal style, which is a real treat for those who have never tried them before. A bit different than what you’d generally find in the states, it’s not your average bagel shop, and will give residents in the area one more great option for a quick bite to eat.

An Upscale Safeway

An upscale Safeway, the first of its kind in Arizona, is expected to anchor a new shopping development called The Trailhead along 83rd Avenue and Happy Valley Road. This new Safeway concept will provide a shopping experience like no other, and will feature a walk-in wine cellar, a fish monger, a bakery, a kombucha bar and much more. If you want to give the way you do your weekly shopping a little boost, this Safeway will become one of your new favorite destinations.

The New Splash Pad

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Arizona gets hot in the summer. With that in mind, it’s great to remember that a new splash pad is on its way. Set to be built inside the new Paloma Park (which is currently under construction), it will be a great place to take the kids to cool off, even if they’re not quite old enough to go swimming. A fantastic place for a family to spend a hot afternoon, it will also be a great alternative to spending all day hiding away from the summer heat.

A Local Coffee Shop!

One of the best things happening in the area, is one that will really appeal to coffee lovers. Black Rock Coffee house (also proposed as a tenant at Sunrise Plaza on Lake Pleasant Parkway and Happy Valley Road) will give those looking for a java fix a new lease on life with coffee that’s brewed with a bit more of a personal touch. This breath of fresh air will give customers a chance to explore a variety of different coffees while connecting with their neighbors and meeting new friends.
