We snuck in early; here are the photos.
It seems that Ares Collective — the team behind Commoner & Co., Prep & Pastry, and August Rhodes Market — hasn’t slept this year.
In the past few months, the team launched a new concept, August Rhodes Market. Additionally, Prep & Pastry opened its first location outside of Tucson. Most recently, they revamped both the interior and the kitchen at Commoner & Co.
The renovation was more than a fresh coat of white paint; the entire feel has changed with beautifully hand-crafted wooden tables, greenery, a new bar, and additional seating, which allows them to accommodate 150 guests.
In addition, the menu has been updated for the season. Commoner & Co. invited us in early for a sneak peek; here are the photos from our experience.
