Craig DeMarco is adding yet another restaurant to his north central Phoenix stable.
He and his Upward Projects partners - wife Kris DeMarco, and Lauren and Wyatt Bailey - have taken over Aiello's, at 5202 N. Central Ave., just north of Camelback Road. That will bring the total number of Upward Projects restaurants in the neighborhood to five.
Three of them are already up-and-running: Postino Central, Windsor and Churn. (The company also operates two other Postinos, in Arcadia and the East Valley.)
And back in May, Upward Projects announced that it would be putting a restaurant into the former First Federal Savings & Loan Bank building, just north of Aiello's at 5210 N. Central Ave. Scheduled to open at the end of 2012, right now that restaurant has neither a name nor a concept.
The Aiello's replacement doesn't have a name, either. But it does have a concept: "A neighborhood-friendly Mexican bar with a killer shareable menu," says DeMarco. No opening date has been announced, but construction is going to get underway immediately.
