Check out our latest restuarant T.I. project to open- the Eleanor! As featured in the Phoenix Business Journal & ABC 15 AZ


A new Scottsdale brunch restaurant called The Eleanor is set to open in September in a space formerly occupied by Scottsdale Dry Cleaners. The restaurant, which will focus on breakfast and lunch with both full-service and grab-and-go options, is at 3207 N. Hayden Road, just south of Osborn Road in south Scottsdale. 

The owner of the building and developer of the project – Clayton Cos. – brought on Scottsdale-based Aline Architecture Concepts to transform the space into a mid-century inspired restaurant.

Clayton has worked with Aline on several infill projects in the past including Fate Brewing Company and The Clayton House

“After working on several projects across the Valley and building a relationship with the team over the years, I knew it was going to be a seamless collaboration,” Tom Frenkel, the owner of Clayton Cos., said in a statement. “The Aline team created a refreshing and stunning new concept for us to house The Eleanor in and we couldn't be more excited to have a new brunch spot for our local community to gather."

The new look includes a lot of wood and a retro color scheme to keep the mid-century feel of the building that was first constructed in 1966.

“We kept the historic low-profile roof, while brightening the space with new garage doors to the patio and a high wall with clerestory windows to bring in the natural light,” said Aline co-founder Brian Krob.

The redesign of the former dry cleaning space also includes new features outside. What was once asphalt is now “a Polynesian-themed area with subtropical plantings, lava rock, and a large overhanging shade structure,” according to an announcement.

Directly across from this space is a new lunch and dinner restaurant that is not-yet-named also being developed by Clayton. It will be opening in the spring of 2024.
