Make this house your home!

The house has to serve comfort – Adolf Loos

If you have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a casual dinner at a renowned chef’s private home, now an experience like this is truly possible. Chef Eddie Matney invites you into his house, Eddie’s House, every day to experience the most delectable creations in the comfort of his own home. Browse around the shelves, yes those are his family photos; a painting of his son Jacob adorns the wall. The couch is soft and cozy, the walls and décor are as warm and inviting as the food being served.

Eddie's HouseChef Eddie has been a mainstay on the restaurant scene in Phoenix and Scottsdale for over 25 years. Over the years, he has amassed a huge and devoted following, one that understands his passion for food, family and fly fishing (really) and the way he has chosen to create a loving dining experience.

The goal behind Eddie’s House is to create a unique dining experience in which the guest truly feels that they are being catered to by a private chef in the comfort of his own house. Yes, the experience is that intimate! Eddie has succeeded in creating an environment where the food is delectable and the service is uncompromising. Eddie personally oversees every aspect of food preparation and the running of the restaurant. You will see him bouncing around tirelessly answering the phone, greeting guests, working in the kitchen, talking to the servers and staff and stopping by tables to chat with diners. This is no absentee chef with his or her name on the door; this truly is Eddie’s House.

Eddie’s House is a personal dining experience of culinary delights. Schmooze’s personal favorite appetizer is the Mint Pesto Grilled Lamb Chops with humus although the Mo’ Rockin Shrimp is a traditional guest favorite. Appetizers are followed up with either Seared Salmon or Tuna or the epitome of comfort food, Bacon Infused Meatloaf (just don’t tell mom you are cheating on her).

For those of you who would like to sample Eddie’s House on a smaller scale, Eddie is now serving lunch Mon – Friday 11 am – 2 pm.  Lunch is reasonably priced at under $15 for all entrees. It’s a perfect way to sample his accessible menu in Downtown Scottsdale.

Try Eddie’s House. It will be the start of a beautiful relationship.
