Need2Know: Cuppers Coffee House moves; new brewery construction; and tri-city area chamber mixer set
Cuppers Coffee House moves to Montezuma Street spot
Cuppers Coffee House, a longtime downtown-Prescott mainstay, is set to re-open soon at a new downtown location.
The coffee shop recently shuttered its former Cortez Street location, and owners have been working on the new venue at 224 S. Montezuma St.
Renovation work is wrapping up at that spot, and co-owner Albert Black says the new site will open for business as soon as final inspections take place. He expected that to happen by Friday, April 12, with the soft opening beginning immediately afterward.
New menu items will be featured, Black said, and an adjoining outdoor patio and food-truck site is expected to be ready by summer.
A grand opening is being planned for early May.
New brewery construction underway in downtown entertainment district
A chef has now been named for the new LazyG Brewhouse, which is set to open in Prescott’s downtown entertainment district early this summer.
Brewery owners announced this past week that Jeff Myers, who has worked at a number of notable spots in Phoenix, Prescott and Jerome, would lead the culinary operations at the brewpub planned three blocks south of the courthouse plaza at 220 W. Leroux St.
Owners Jim and Jean-Marie Bellington say they were immediately impressed with Myers’ “desire to take casual comfort food and adding flare.”
Myers brings 25 years of hospitality experience to the job, having worked at spots such as: Paul Fleming Restaurants in Phoenix; Alice Cooperstown in Phoenix; Cellar 433 in Jerome; Redwoods Grill at Prescott Golf Club; and M Culinary Concepts in Phoenix.
Construction is well underway on the new building, and Jim Bellington said the business is expected to be open by June.
