North Italia and Flower Child, both by Sam Fox of Phoenix-based Fox Restaurant Concepts, will open at The Bowl at Ballantyne in 2024.
These join a growing list of Bowl at Ballantyne tenants, including:
You may know North Italia and Flower Child from their South End locations, but here’s a refresher:
North Italia was created in 2002 as a modern Italian restaurant.
ABOUT THE MENU: Using seasonal ingredients, expect scratch-made pasta dishes, a chef’s choice daily pizza and entrées including Squid Ink Tonnarelli and Braised Short Rib. A personal favorite: White Truffle Garlic Bread, with housemade ricotta, mozzarella, grana padano, herbs. Make room for it and thank me later.
ABOUT THE LOCATION: The restaurant will be 6,480 square feet and it will be across from Fly Kid Fly and Honeysuckle Gelato on Bowl Street.
Flower Child originated in Phoenix in 2014. It’s a healthy and satisfying fast-casual spot that features made-from-scratch meals. It features free yoga mat parking, Instagrammable interior details and a vegan-friendly menu.
ABOUT THE LOCATION: The Ballantyne location will be 3,555 square feet and it will be across from North Italia on Bowl Street.
ABOUT THE MENU: Look for plant-forward customizable bowls, wraps, salads, different mix-and-match veggies, grains, fruits and healthy proteins.
Fox Restaurants also own Culinary Dropout, which will open Oct. 11 in South End.
