When Chef Kevin Binkley sets out to do great or train great, he does. With the pressures of Binkley’s Restaurant consistently pulling him in a new direction, a game time decision was needed on what to do with his final casual restaurant, Cafe Bink. Enter Chef Justin Olsen. In need of a new opportunity and trained by Chef Binkley for over 5 years at Binkley’s, Chef Justin was the perfect partner for Cafe Bink. And yes, we said partner. Now at the helm of the kitchen, Chef Justin has already put his knowledge, training and passion to work. With a revamp of the menu – 14 new menu items to be exact – its just the beginning of bringing Cafe Bink back to what it’s been known for: Fresh and locally sourced ingredients used in simple yet delicuous dishes, Cafe Bink is back. Come on in and say hi.
Yep, you heard right. Chef Kevin Binkley has sold Bink’s Kitchen + Bar in Scottsdale. The details….. • New ownership came on August 23 • The new owners are keeping the staff • Come on in, say hi and enjoy the same menu for a few weeks longer • Our Chef Wes Castle will assist for a short time in the transition and then return his focus on getting Binkley’s @ Midtown ready to open The space that was occupied by Binkley’s Restaurant in Cave Creek was purchased and will turn into a new concept for the great city of Cave Creek.
Binkley’s @ Midtown & Cafe Bink
Cafe Bink is still open and ready to continue to serve guests their favorites. We have to admit – it has one of the best patios to enjoy our great weather and sunsets. We are planning many events including the Hindsight Wine Dinner, Pig’s Head Buffet and a special happy hour for your 4-legged doggie friend. Follow us on Facebook for announcements. Binkley’s @ Midtown is still on track for an October open date. Online reservations will be opening up soon!
“Sometimes you have to make tough decisions. The sale of Scottsdale was not an easy one to make. Amy and I want to work on the farm and then cook the best food for our guests. It’ll be like cooking for my friends in my kitchen at home and I cant think of a better feeling.” – Chef Binkley
