one of two new restaurants sharing a space at the shops at gainey village officially opens on monday, jan. 30.

the living room wine cafe & lounge, on the southeast corner of scottsdale road and doubletree ranch, starts welcoming customers at 11 a.m. it will be open for lunch and dinner daily.

owner tom kaufman and partners have divided the building into two areas divided by a gl partition, and will debut their other concept, la sala tequila cantina, in mid-february. both restaurants will share the kitchen, facilitating ordering from either menu, regardless of where you sit.

the menu offers something from everyone, from bruschetta ($8.95 for two) to oysters on the half shell ($14.95) to sushi rolls ($8-95-$12.95). look for flatbreads, salads, sandwiches and other options, plus a lengthy menu of wines by the gl , along with wine flights and tails.

meanwhile, this is the valley's second la sala, described as a modern latin kitchen. the first location opened in the fall at 2475 w. queen creek road, next to the living room, in downtown ocotillo.

at gainey ranch, the living room and la sala take over what was once the dish, a short-lived, locally owned market and restaurant.
