The House at Secret Garden Has Closed

For four years The House at Secret Garden has been a destination for romantic patio dining, a go-to spot to impress out-of-towners with the restaurant's uniquely Arizonan cuisine.

Unfortunately as of Saturday, April 12 that is no longer the case.

According a post on the restaurant's Facebook page, owner Pat Christofolo has decided not to renew the lease on The House at Secret Garden. The restaurant has closed but The Secret Garden will still be available for events and weddings.

Christofolo teamed up with her son, chef Dustin Christofolo, to open the restaurant in 2010. Dustin served a menu of seasonal, local cuisine until last fall when he moved over to the kitchen at Quiessence.

Pat Christofolo has also recently acquired The Farm at South Mountain. That property includes Morning Glory Cafe, The Farm Kitchen, and Quiessence.
