This member spotlight is on La Bocca Wine Bar & Urban Kitchen: Arizona restaurateur Julian Wright, the ace behind popular Mill Ave restaurants La Bocca Urban Pizzeria, The Handlebar, Gringo Star Street Bar, and Modern Margarita in High Street, continues to grow his restaurant empire with the opening of La Bocca Wine Bar & Urban Kitchen at High Street. North Valley Phoenicians can now enjoy a new locally owned option for pizza and wine. Savor tasty, Mediterranean-inspired dishes and offerings similar to the menu at the Tempe location and sip on a glass or two of wine from an expanded wine list. We highly recommend the Calabria pizza that includes housemade pesto, picante salami, tomatoes, toasted pine nuts and parmesan, or the garden pizza made with locally sourced veggies.
La Bocca’s beautiful hand-tossed pizzas, world-famous bruschetta planks, an impressive selection of wines, house-made sangrias and beverages are a welcome treat for the North Valley. Whether it’s a power business lunch, intimate dinner, late night dining or drinks, La Bocca offers a casual, yet, sophisticated wine bar and pizzeria atmosphere.
