PHOENIX -- Chestnut Lane, a favorite Valley restaurant forced to close its doors despite its popularity in 2010, has returned to the corner of Camelback Road and 44th Street under new ownership and a refreshed moniker, Chestnut Fine Foods & Provisions.

Sisters and new owners Marissa Hochman and Kirsten Steele are carrying on the eatery's legacy while accomplishing their lifelong dream of opening a restaurant that showcases their passion for high-quality, local, fresh and delicious food.

"Having a place where our community can gather and feel connected is so important to us," said Marissa. "We want Chestnut to be a place where our neighbors can comfortably dine on exquisite food that's not only healthy but prepared fresh from local ingredients."

Offering many of the same from-scratch breakfast and lunch dishes that first attracted its avid local following, Chestnut Fine Foods & Provisions continues to use premium local ingredients to maintain a farm-to-table dining experience. Guests can enjoy original fan favorites like the Lobster Cobb Salad with Applewood-smoked bacon or try new dishes like the Morning Bibimbap Bowl featuring quinoa, tamari, green onions and sauteed kale with poached eggs and Korean chili paste.

"My love for Chestnut Lane began the moment I first discovered the famous ficelles," noted Kirsten. "And that's why we want to stay true to the legacy that Chestnut Lane left behind while integrating our ideas and visions into the menu, as well as the atmosphere.

Located in the heart of the Camelback Corridor's business district, Chestnut Fine Foods & Provisions' enticing new additions including a hassle-free marketplace, a top-of-the-line coffee program featuring the Valley's first Modbar and an avant-garde floral boutique.
