If it weren’t situated on the corner of Indian School and Goldwater in Scottsdale, you may think it was his actual home. A nice one, at that. Framed family photos clustered on a console table, the coffee table books stacked near the leather couches, the artwork of his children look like Eddie moved them from his actual home (I didn’t see a Murphy bed on the wall) to his restaurant. The comfort, elegant style, sophistication and warmth that you would imagine in dream home shows off the great taste of Eddie, in more than one way.
Eddie is known around town as a signture chef, with his initial restaurant, Matney’s. Eddie’s House is a perfect blend of the dishes he’s known for (meatloaf, “What’s in this Steak,” amazing seafood creations) and some new goodies like his pot roast with sweet potato gnocchi and chorizo bolognese. No matter the dish, the best part is the very open kitchen, and you can hear Eddie’s recognizeable voice direct his team on each creation. And when I say open – I mean, you can sit at the counter of the kitchen if you’d like (and I like).
The bar, I must say, rises to the occassion for Eddie’s House. A little more swanky than the restaurant, still effortlessly comfortable, it’s a hoppin’ place for happy hour and after-dinner drinks. I’ve found myself stopping off at Eddie’s for a drink and strolling around Old Town Scottsdale’s galleries (sitting right outside of Eddie’s doors) numerous times, and would recommend such a plan to anyone.
Between the renowned food, comfortable atmosphere, and welcoming energy, you’ll want to call Eddie’s House, well, “home.”
