An old friend has returned to Downtown.
tomstavernLast Thursday, the owners of the Arizona Cardinals ownership group reopened Tom’s Tavern & 1929 Grill, one of Downtown’s oldest and most beloved restaurants.
Closed for remodeling since the spring, Tom’s Tavern & 1929 Grill (located on the corner of First Avenue and Washington) is primed, polished, and ready to continue the comfort food and meeting place traditions established by former Tom’s Tavern owner Michael Ratner, the longtime champion for Downtown Phoenix who passed away last November.
Since buying Tom’s, Cardinals team president Michael Bidwill has been committed to updating the restaurant’s interior (photo courtesy of Tom’s Tavern) and menu without losing its nostalgic vibe.
Tom’s Tavern will be serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner during the week and will be open on the weekends. Executive Chef Jason Choate has reimagined the Tom’s menu, keeping the famous chili and blue plate specials (Tom’s Traditions) but adding some organic Arizona flair. Peruse the updated Tom’s menu here.
Tom’s is available to host special events and also offers catering services. For more information call 602-257-1688.
