The owner of Provecho, Ryan, has been fortunate to be able to travel the world and experience many foods, cultures, and people. He realized that food seems to be a bond that everyone in the world shares.
While traveling through Mexico on a motorcycle, Ryan fell in love with the food, culture and customs of the Jalisco region. Several years later, life landed Ryan and his family in Guadalajara for 4 years. Mexico is in his soul. He still travels to Guadalajara every month for business. Ryan fell in love with the rich flavors of the central Mexican cuisine and the simplicity of presentation allowing the depth of flavor to come alive. Ryan is invested in bringing the Jalisco flavors to downtown Phoenix. Provecho offers simple yet flavorful food of the earth. COMIDA DE LA TIERRA! "Comida de mi Tierra” signifies food from my earth, REAL food. At Provecho we are hoping and focused on creating food that bonds people, crosses cultures, and offers a unique opportunity to meet new people and share experiences. Buen Provecho
Provecho is a Mexican expression used when someone is about to eat and you wish them a great meal! In Spanish it means “enjoy your meal”, like the French expression “bon appetite”. Provecho is a concept that our restaurant will embrace at all times.The food will be locally sourced from local purveyors whenever possible. The freshest vegetables, meat and fish will be used. Highest quality food for the end user is the ultimate goal. A variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables will be included on the menu throughout the year. Vegetable options will have a big emphasis, as it is in the regions we are using for inspiration.
The Provecho concept will offer a “true” Central Mexican food experience. The flavors, style and cuisine typically found in the downtown and greater Phoenix market are typically Northern Mexico restaurants, a very different style. By bringing many of the popular Jalisco foods, we will be offering a new and unique take on the typical Mexican food currently serving the Phoenix food market.
Provecho will be focused on creating excellent food, unique presentations and employing a talented kitchen staff. The emphasis on the quality of our Food and experience for our guests is paramount.
