Located within walking distance of Phoenix's downtown sports arenas, Steve's Greenhouse Grill is a prime spot for stopping in before a game or to watch one on the eatery's many screens over drinks. The menu shows the restaurant's dedication to quality and taste with antibiotic- and hormone-free buffalo burgers and cowboy cheeseburgers topped with smoked bacon and onion rings. Among the chefs' original creations, the house twist on mac 'n' cheese blends penne pasta with cheddar, bacon, and chipotle alfredo sauce, all of which help give it its signature flavor and help protect it from foul balls hurtling by from nearby Chase Field.
Countless repairs and home-remodeling projects can undoubtedly trace their lineage back to Paul's Ace Hardware, which began doling out DIY equipment and home-improvement supplies in 1956. Founded by Paul E. Dauwalder, the shop quickly expanded from its original 1,800-square-foot space, branching out to five shops that now operate beneath the expert eye of Paul's granddaughter. Cleaning products, outdoor equipment, and pool supplies are just a fragment of the stores' inventory, with power tools awaiting steady hands, fishing gear beckoning lake dwellers, and building materials—including the Tempe location's 56,000 square feet of lumber—standing poised and ready to be assembled into dams by handy beavers. Still in the city of its founding, the Scottsdale location has moved and upgraded to its own building.
Eden GardenHouse's attentive staff curates the feel of an outdoor garden by bringing pottery, trellises, and terra cotta accents together as a backdrop for the home-accents shop. The assortment of house- and condo-beautifying products includes lamps, candles, finials, and pictures. Clients can choose items for themselves or bring an Eden consultant into their home to help them decorate unadorned sitting rooms or floating houseboats stripped of décor by thieving seagulls. A children’s garden room nestles inside Eden, where the branches of a tree mural hang over a play area full of garden-inspired toys such as rakes, watering cans, and riding lawnmowers. The space also plays host to children’s workshops where they work with parents to complete a garden art project.
