Tom's Tavern & 1929 Grill Re-Opens Under Arizona Cardinals Ownership

Categories: Restaurant News

Looks like a lot's going on for the Bidwill family these days. Last week, the owners of the Arizona Cardinals, along with the rest of us, got the news that Phoenix will be the host city for Super Bowl 49 and, as the new owners of Tom's Tavern & 1929 Grill, they re-opened a Phoenix landmark as well.

Located in downtown Phoenix on the northeast corner of 1st Avenue and Washington Street, the comfort food restaurant and political gathering spot went up for sale last year when previous owner Michael Ratner couldn't maintain operations due to his battle with cancer, to which he eventually succumbed last November. Cardinals president Michael Bidwill, a longtime supporter of Tom's Tavern and acquaintance of Ratner, purchased Tom's earlier this year and will operate the eatery under the Rojo Hospitality Group, the division of his company that handles the food service at the University of Phoenix Stadium.

Closed for remodeling since the spring, Tom's updated interior goes along with an entirely new menu for the restaurant's daily breakfast, lunch and dinner service courtesy of executive chef Jason Choate.

With the Rojo Hospitality Group since June of last year, chef Choate's menu will feature traditional tavern fare along with specialty breakfast items like Tom's Man-Sized Quiche and southwest eggs benedict, an "All Day" menu featuring classic sandwiches and a quinoa garbanzo spinach salad, a "Trilogy Platter" of meat, and homemade desserts.

Tom's also boasts an in-house meat smoker, happy hour Monday through Friday, and a new private room called the "Governor's Corner," which makes sense given the restaurant's history as a local gathering place for all kinds of Arizona big shots.
