1974-1976 Avanti of Phoenix and Scottsdale are opened and they are an immediate success! The first restaurants to offer European inspired cuisine like, Escargot, Octopus salad, Carpaccio and Fresh made Italian Pasta (it was known as spaghetti in those days). The Avanti partners found the desert a challenging place to finding the ingredients needed for their dishes and went to the extreme of flying in fresh East Coast seafood daily and growing their own herbs and some produce (a habit that continues even today)!
