Vanished(?) Phoenix-Scottsdale restaurants
I had assembled a bunch of recommendations from this board, but was finding that even some recent ones appeared to have vanished - or at least don't have viable listings in the telephone book. For starters, I think ones I couldn't find included Lolo's, Taylor's Cafe, and Local Breeze, all mentioned here fairly recently.
Are they around, or what?
And, a reminder - remember, people, that if you misspell a restaurant name here, it makes it less likely that it will turn up in a Chowhound search and less likely that a Hound can find it with a Google search!
Lolo's -- doing just fine. Recently added a second location in southern Scottsdale
Local Breeze -- ate there a few weeks ago; still open to the best of my knowledge
Taylor's Cafe -- never been but haven't heard about it closing.
By the way, I just tried looking up all three -- exactly as spelled in your post -- in Google Maps and had no problem finding them. Chowhound's own search functionality is pretty clunky. If you want to find mentions of a specifc restaurant on the Chowhound site, I would search via Google:
<restaurant name> <name of city> site:chow.com
"local breeze" phoenix site:chow.com
Hmm. I can't really answer that. The telephone company insists on delivering printed phone books to my door, but I pitch them directly into the recycling bin. They seem a quaint 20th Century anachronism. My only guess is that some of these places -- particularly Local Breeze -- are too new to show up in printed phonebooks. In other cases, like LoLo's, it may be a that printed directory is less forgiving of spelling differences than an online directory. I think LoLo's might be listed with a space between the two "los," and maybe Lo Lo's gets alphabetized differently than LoLo's. If you are without Internet access, maybe calling 411 is a better strategy than relying on phonebooks?
The Taylor's in Scottsdale at FLW/101 closed quite a while ago. A place called Breakfast Joynt is in that location now. It didn't impress us at all on our visit.
