When did Terra Cotta in Scottsdale close?
Early summer, 2001, I believe. The owner, Deboarah Norbert (I think that's her name), said she felt overwhelmed with her new Cafe Terra Cotta in Tucson and her mail order business. She also cited the decreased business restaurants suffer thru during the summers here in Phoenix and the proliferation and popularity of national chain restaurants.
BTW, the Tucson location is the largest restaurant in the city of Tucson.
