By Claire Natale - Friday Apr 05, 2024
PHOENIX – Brody’s Italian, located at 10810 N. Tatum Blvd. in Phoenix, is proud to announce its rebranding from Nick’s Italian, and is now under the stewardship of owner Jason Brody.

Guided by a profound dedication to excellent hospitality cultivated since his early days in the industry at just 15 years of age, Brody is poised to elevate the dining experience for all patrons while preserving the cherished elements that have kept his loyal clientele.

The grand unveiling is scheduled for the week of April 15th, paying tribute to Brody's father, Jamie Brody, who was a philanthropic figure within the community. On April 20, in honor of Jamie's birthday, 50% of the proceeds of the restaurant’s signature Chicken Parmesan dish and The ‘JAB cocktail’ will be dedicated to the Sojourner Center, which provides a refuge for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking, a cause close to Brody's heart, in honor of his father’s philanthropic legacy.

"Brody's Italian is more than just a restaurant; it's a place where memories are made and relationships are forged," said Brody. "We are staying true to the roots of our menu while adding a few new signature dishes, freshening up the wine list, and cocktail program, as well as making some necessary changes to the restaurant's interior.”

The 1,800-square-foot restaurant is upgrading its interior with newly renovated bathrooms, new lighting, fresh paint, rewrapped booths, as well as a rebranded logo and other modern finishes.

By infusing innovation and vitality into every facet of the dining experience, Brody endeavors to captivate both longstanding patrons and newcomers alike. He plans to continue to spend a significant amount of his time behind the bar interacting with guests and ensuring each visit is a memorable one.

"For 20 years, this restaurant has been my home, so it was only natural that I embarked on the journey to become its new owner. It's a space I've been incredibly passionate about, and I'm excited to continue its legacy. After signing an extended lease, we're injecting fresh energy and innovative ideas into the mix, ensuring an exciting journey ahead,” said Brody.
