A new tacos and tequila gastropub opened last month in Midtown Phoenix on the northwest corner of Seventh Street and Osborn Road, called Taco Guild.
The menu highlights tacos made with ingredients sourced from local farms. The bar features more than 150 different varieties of tequila as well as craft beers and draught wine.
Recipes have been sourced from Old World Mexico as “Guild Master” Matt Janiec endeavored on numerous research trips to perfect spices and flavor combinations. Local farms such as Crooked Sky and McClendon grow and harvest the seasonally fresh produce. A chalkboard next to the open kitchen displays the partner farm that grew the produce.
In the kitchen, each tortilla is hand made and grilled minutes before it is served to diners, ensuring the produce and tortilla are of equal freshness.
There are more than 150 varieties of tequila for guests to explore, and tequila flights will be available for purchase.
The restaurant is on the former site of the Bethel Methodist Church, first constructed in 1893. More than 20 feet in the air, the dark wood ceiling and support beams are refinished and kept intact. Three sizeable stained glass windows, which were dedicated by the church in 1965, also are repurposed.
Taco Guild, 546 E. Osborn Road, is open seven days a week beginning at 11 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. on Sundays. For more information, visit www.TacoGuild.com or call 602-264-4143.
