House of Tricks celebrates its 30th anniversary all week long

One of the valley’s favorite restaurants has stood the test of time and is celebrating with a weeks worth of specials and soiree to celebrate this milestone. Tempe’s House of Tricks celebrates its 30th anniversary on September 6th by bringing back some of its favorite dishes from its 30 years serving unique and satisfying food.

When Bob and Robin Trick opened House of Tricks in 1987 it was the first fine dining restaurant in Tempe.  Since then they’ve  hosted many graduation dinners, special events, wine tastings and charities functions while still serving farm to table dishes from its small kitchen to diners enjoying the beautiful and lush patio setting just off Mill Ave. in downtown Tempe.

Several recognizable names in the valley’s restaurant scene worked at House of Tricks including executive chef and owner of Crudo & Okra Cullen Campbell, chef Kelly Fletcher and Brent Karlicek who oversees the beverage program at Upward Projects (Postine Wine Cafe, The Windsor, Federal Pizza and more).

A week long of favorites from the past

With the help of staff, regular customers, family and friends the restaurant will be serving favorite dishes that have been 86’d over the years but will return the week of September 5th- 15th. This opportunity to try dishes will give fans of the restaurant an opportunity to stroll down memory lane and enjoy meals they never thought they’d have again.

Guests can also look forward to a special craft cocktail to commemorate the 30th anniversary created by their in-house mixologist.
