DRINKING WINE AT LUNCH IS NOT A CRIME, pleads signage outside of Postino, a chain of 7 restaurants in Arizona — and one in Colorado — now on its way to the west side of the Heights Mercantile development on W. 7th St. The photo at top shows construction underway on Postino’s patio, which will sit outside the restaurant on the corner of Yale and 7th St.
Clothing stores Rye 51 and The Gypsy Wagon opened adjacent to Postino’s planed spot last year inside the structure labeled “Bldg. 1” in the Heights Mercantile site plan below:
Former owner Pappas Restaurants sold the warehouse building in 2014, and
The Finial Group a partnership led by Radom Capital renovated it ahead of the new-ish tenants’ arrivals last year. Rye 51 occupies the portion of the building that stretches north to front W. 7th St. Gypsy Wagon’s spot is in the east side of the structure, set back from 7th St. by a parking area that used to be fenced. Postino will take up the area on Yale St., south of the patio.
After drinking your meal, Cloud 10 Creamery, Melange Creperie, The Impeccable Pig, and Warby Parker are just a short walk away from the restaurant — inside the other 6 buildings that make up the development.
