Square One Concepts, Inc. continues to expand this fall with the opening of its newest concept, Bourbon and Bones Chophouse and Bar coming in early September to Old Town Scottsdale.

Located at 4200 N. Scottsdale Road, on the corner of Third Avenue and Scottsdale Road in a mid-century modern building, the highly anticipated spot also represents a significant economic investment in the city with the redevelopment of the central city block. This redevelopment of extensive frontage on the city’s main thoroughfare is seen by thousands of residents and visitors each year, according to a press release.

“We are honored to now have three landmark locations on Scottsdale’s showcase street,” said S. Barrett Rinzler, president of Square One Concepts, in the release. “We have had the wonderful opportunity to invest in the vibrant ‘Old Town’ area and absolutely look forward to what the future holds for us there.”

The modern, industrial venue has a 4,000 square foot interior styled with reclaimed wood and hand-forged accents featuring distressed leather booths and walnut tables along with a private dining room.

Bourbon and Bones plans an inventive menu featuring classic American fare focusing on wet aged and dry aged cuts of beef, a list of more than 75 high-end bourbons, a 750 bottle glass wine case and a robust cocktail program for the sophisticated aficionado.

Chef Isaac Carter who leads the helm on the most recently launched brand of Square One Concepts, Crab and Mermaid Fish Shop, serves as executive chef for both restaurants. Chef Carter, formerly with the Todd English Enterprises with restaurants in Boston, New York and Las Vegas, among others, was recruited to Phoenix to oversee the culinary programs of the newest Square One Concept brands.

“We’re thrilled to launch Bourbon and Bones to fill the fine dining void in Old Town Scottsdale while bringing the finest quality meats, classic handcrafted cocktails and a few more surprises with that modern twist that’s perfect for our downtown Scottsdale location,” said Chef Carter in the release.

Meanwhile, Chef Carter graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., after completing studies at Ithaca College in Ithaca, N.Y., and Temple University in Philadelphia.
