Basis New American Cusine has closed

Basis, on the NW corner of of 7th St and Thunderbird, been talked about a few times over the years on here. Never a destination restaurant for the Valley, but definitely a mainstay for those of us in Moon Valley and North Phoenix. Sadly it closed on July 2nd. They had tried some creative things - recently been running a 3 course for $15 deal with kids-eat-free. Whopper of a deal for some great food. But wasn't enough to get them into the black.

Here's the "story" behind it.

It's sad, but too common in this day and age. This part of the Valley, too, just can't support a good, local restaurant that doesn't have strong bar activity. Not a chef's paradise up here.

  1. Interesting, and sad. We hit them in their first month, and returned many times. Later on, things seemed a tad uneven, and some of the "signature dishes" just were not up to par.

    We planned on stopping by last Thursday evening, but it was too late.

    Thanks for that link,
