The House evokes a bygone era, a time when service and hospitality mattered most in the dining experience. Tucked away in a shaded corner Old Town Scottsdale, The House is also a place of culinary artistry—where Chef Matt Carter invites you to explore his menu of re-imagined classic Mediterranean dishes. From house-made pastas to shellfish cooked over an Argentinian-style grill, dining at The House is an exciting culinary journey. Proprietor Brian Raab will ensure that you’re comfortable, while any one of the charming mixologists will make sure your hand-pressed cocktail tastes absolutely perfect. Join us.
Chef/Owner Matt Carter has created a menu anchored in the waters of the Mediterranean, where fresh shellfish and coal-grilled meats reign supreme. But he also journeys to Italy, serving up house-made pastas such as a fettuccine lamb Bolognese and duck confit ravioli to dining guests ; he adds a version of his wildly popular French onion soup (Zinc Bistro) with Gruyere; experiments with tarts inspired by Alsace, German spaetzles, and Spanish paellas. Back at the Argentinian- style coal grill, many items will receive a kiss of smoke before they arrive at your table— from crab legs to pickled ramps. Hand-churned butters, clams steamed in a bacon broth with miso and chilies, even dumplings … this menu is perfect for any occasion—from large groups looking to share multiple items, to couples seeking a more traditional three-course route. Chef Carter is excited to take you (and beyond) in this fun and exciting environment.
