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.
