Earlier this month on August 12th, La Bocca Urban Kitchen + Wine Bar and Modern Margarita Urban Taco and Tequila Bar, opened in downtown Chandler. Although they have a very unique vibe and menu, they share more than the same owners, but the same kitchen! La Bocca and Modern Margarita are both foodie favorites.
La Bocca Urban Kitchen + Wine Bar
Due to popularity, the Chandler location will be the third in Arizona, joining locations on Mill Avenue in Tempe and High Street in Northeast Phoenix. The restaurant specializes in Mediterranean and Italian cuisine. Menu favorites include Steamed Mussels, Antipasti Boards, a vast option of Bruschetta Boards, Chef’s Pizzas, and various pastas and salads. The same menu and specials can be found at all three locations, but they have events unique to each. Happy hour is everyday from 3pm-630pm. For more information you can visit them at La Bocca Pizzeria or like them on faceboook.
Modern Margarita’s Urban Taco and Tequila Bar
If you’re like most, you crave Tacos and Tequila on a weekly basis. Like La Bocca, the popularity of Modern Margarita called for a second location in Chandler. The original Modern Margarita can be found on High Street in Northeast Phoenix. Modern Margarita goes for a upbeat, bright, and fun vibe. Not only is this displayed in the space, but their food and drinks play the same part. If you want an all around great experience, Modern Margarita delivers just that! Their fresh ingredients and quality spirits will send you moving happily along.
Our favorite was the Sandia Rita which mixed Altos Blanco Tequila with watermelon syrup, pineapple juice, house sour, agave, and fresh lime juice. If you’re looking for the happiest happy hour, definitely check them out! Modern Margarita will not disappoint you and your Tacos and Tequila cravings.
