After weeks of delay, Matt Carter, Terry Ellisor and Brian Raab quietly opened The House at 6936 E. Main Street in Old Town Scottsdale on Wednesday night. The partners had planned to open the restaurant -- housed in a charming 1929 bungalow said to be the second oldest house in Scottsdale -- earlier in the summer, but they had issues with the city over the interior sprinklers, installed in case of fire.

Carter says the place still has a number of minor logistical issues to be resolved, but the city and the fire marshall have signed off on everything, and now they're up and running.
