Chef Matney's Back: Eddie's House set to open next month
Unless you attended the Taste of the NFL culinary event last weekend, or unless you're a member of the ritzy Golf Club Scottsdale, you probably haven't had a taste of chef Eddie Matney's cooking lately. There's nothing wrong with big-ticket parties and private clubs, but let's face it -- Matney's fanbase goes well beyond an elite few.
Now there's word that Matney will be back on the local restaurant scene -- and soon. His new venture, Eddie's House, has a target opening date of mid-March, and will be located at the northwest corner of Indian School and Marshall Way in Scottsdale.
There's no menu yet, but we're promised a mix of Matney's signature Mediterranean-inspired tastes along with a changing array of seasonal dishes. A number of items will be available both as small plates and as full-sized entrees.
In keeping with the domestic theme, Eddie's House will have a comfy atmosphere reminiscent of a living room, with the man himself at the helm of the chef's counter in front of the exhibition kitchen. On the outside patio, guests will be able to make their own s'mores by the fireplace and watch movies projected onto a big screen.
