Toca Madera Announces Expansion to Scottsdale's Fashion Square
Shoppers hungry for exciting new dining experiences at Scottsdale Fashion Square can soon go where LA chefs and celebrities head for their upscale Mexican food fix: Toca Madera. This will be the attention-getting restaurant’s third location beyond its West Hollywood flagship and international outpost in Dubai.
Scottsdale Fashion Square, part of the Macerich portfolio of one-of-a-kind retail properties in top markets, announced that Toca Madera will join the already-announced Ocean 44 to flank the dramatic entrance of its new luxury wing, which is now under redevelopment.
Toca Madera reimagines traditional Mexican cuisine with a modern approach, pairing locally-sourced ingredients with bold flavors to offer an array of options for every eater. Its menu, which has an emphasis on organic, also includes extensive vegan and gluten-free options. Some of the dishes currently offered at its West Hollywood flagship include the A La Roca with American Wagyu Beef, Ensenada-style Fish Tacos, Chipotle-Dusted Tofu Tostadas, Enchiladas de Mole, and the wildly-popular Churro Ice Cream Sandwich.
The two new destination restaurants, which will both have spill-out café seating, will join two new luxury retail flagships to frame the two-level north entrance that is now being created at Scottsdale Fashion Square. Surrounding the property’s new luxury arrival point will be a grand promenade with lush gardens that lead to a signature fountain – all adding to the dynamic new environment.
“Making something already exceptional even better is driving the luxury renovation at Scottsdale Fashion Square, and that means creating opulent settings for shoppers to unwind and refresh,” says Michael Guerin, Senior Vice President of Leasing, Macerich. “The addition of market-exclusive culinary concepts like Toca Madera, along with some of the world’s most respected retail brands, reinforces the property’s reputation as the market’s dominant luxury destination.”
Toca Madera, developed by Tosh Berman and Amrou Manaseer of LA-based-hospitality-leader, The Madera Group, is launching a strategic expansion that will grow Toca Madera’s presence with new locations in markets across the United States and abroad.
“Scottsdale is a market we’ve always wanted to be in,” says Tosh Berman, CEO and Co-founder of The Madera Group. “With Scottsdale Fashion Square’s exciting luxury expansion happening, we knew this was going to be the perfect location for us. We look forward to introducing Toca Madera to the community and showcasing what will be the ultimate in luxury dining.”
