And thus ends the mystery of whether the closure of chef Steven Shultz's New Red Sky Inside Luna Bella restaurant at Plaza Palomino was permanent or just to make way for construction, as the restaurant's website claimed for months.
News came out today that Vero Amore is moving from it's location at 3305 N. Swan Road to the former home of the New Red Sky Inside Luna Bella in Plaza Palomino at 2990 N. Swan Road. It's just a small jump down the street, but a big upgrade for the restaurant.
The move into the former Luna Bella spot is temporary, according to a press release, and the restaurant will eventually move into another space that is being completed as part of a massive revamping of Plaza Palomino. The remodel is expected to wrap up next year.
Vero Amore is owned by brothers Aric and Joshua Mussman, who have another Vero Amore location in Marana. They also own Noble Hops Gastropub in Oro Valley.
The restaurant is expected to open in its new spot in late August.
Meanwhile, it looks like Red Sky/Luna Bella is now a five-star catering company. More on that over here.
