What is Cycle:
Don’t Blink! Cycle is a new restaurant with an expiration date. New chefs, menus and food trucks will “cycle” through the short life of the restaurant. Cycle will only be open at the Lexington Hotel ’til Fall when the entire property undergoes a 6-month renovation.
When is it open?
Cycle’s grand opening will be held on First Friday, April 1, 2011. As usual, the chef, menu and drinks will be announced the week of via Twitter and Facebook. No peeking. We will surprise you.
What is a pop-up restaurant?
The first of it’s kind in Phoenix, Cycle is intentionally a short-lived restaurant with no resident chef. The menu rotates often with new chefs and food trucks on a regular basis. These mini-restaurants exists for only a handful of days, so don’t blink!
Who’s the chef?
Depends on the cycle! Cycle has scheduled the city’s top chefs and gourmet food trucks who will bring their short-lived menu to the restaurant. Check the website for full schedule.
What type of food?
Could be anything! Depends on the chef or food truck during that particular Cycle. Check the online schedule for menus and details for each night of service.
Depends on the rotating chef’s menu. Always expect prices as casual as our space!
