Combined Coffee Shop, Bespoke Market and Wine Bar to Open Late Summer
SCOTTSDALE- Long-time Arizona restaurateur and entrepreneur Hera Ambrosio is proud to announce her new high-end concept, ZINGARA Coffee Shop, Bespoke Market and Wine Bar. The name means “gypsy woman’ in Italian and pays homage to Ambrosio’s own travels. The eatery will serve small bites and take-away meals inspired by the cuisine of Spain, southern France and Italy as well as coffee, European wine and luxury goods.
“I’ve always been inspired by the food and atmosphere of southern Europe,” shares Ambrosio. “I wanted to create an upscale space where people can come together and enjoy the highest quality products. ZINGARA is a coffee shop, bespoke market and wine bar but it’s so much more than the items we sell – it’s also about the beautiful environment we will provide.”
ZINGARA will serve coffee from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., with breakfast items and pastries served until 11 a.m. In partnership with local coffee crafter Infusion Coffee and Tea, the eatery will serve classics like macchiatos, cappuccinos and lattes as well as drinks like Golden Milk, made with turmeric, and a Pistacchietto, which is an espresso made with Bronte pistachio paste and homemade whipped cream. From 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., ZINGARA will provide a variety of grab and go sandwiches and salads made with a European twist, like the mozzarella and prosciutto sandwich and the classic French Niçoise salad.
From 4 to 9 p.m., ZINGARA will transform into a wine bar, serving primarily Italian, French and California wines, exclusive global beers, and sipping liquors as well as small plates to share. The evening bites menu will provide a modern take on European classics like bone marrow, steak tartare, croquettes and a Sacher torte. Visitors can also build their own cheese and salumi board, choosing from products like roasted porchetta, camembert and golden fleece Manchego. ZINGARA has partnered with Terra Farms, a local provider of high-quality beef, to ensure the best experience. For those who want to make European inspired dishes at home, ZINGARA will also be home to a bespoke market selling pasta, olive oil, Vermont maple syrup and other one-of-a-kind food items as well as luxury home goods. Daily goods like milk and eggs will also be available alongside Terra Farms Wagyu beef and other luxury produce.
The interior design of ZINGARA is clean, feminine, and modern. With floor to ceiling windows making up the majority of the walls, the space is filled with natural light. The sophisticated feel continues with whitewashed oak, bronze accents and custom shelving. Each detail was designed by Ambrosio herself, providing a distinct ambiance. The space also includes two large patios perfect for al fresco dining. Wi-Fi will be available, as well as multiple outlets, creating an environment perfect for remote workers.
Ambrosio has been a part of the Arizona food scene for 25 years. ZINGARA will be an opportunity to provide the very European style of slowing down and coming together over a bite and a drink, something that Ambrosio is proud to bring to the Scottsdale area. The eatery is planned to open in mid-summer 2023 and is located at 11475 N 136th St. in Scottsdale.
