Chef Mark Tarbell immediately elevated fine dining in Phoenix when he opened Tarbell’s in 1994. Hundreds of accolades later, the Tarbell’s team continues to serve contemporary dishes and classic comfort food in the elegant, art-filled space.
Chef Tarbell began his culinary studies in Amsterdam with an apprenticeship at Sonesta Hotel in Amsterdam. He then moved to Paris to study at the Ecolé du Cuisine La Varenne where he earned a Grande Diplôme d’Etude Culinaire. While in Paris, he also studied wine at Steven Spurrier’s l’Academie du Vin. Tarbell’s frequent television and radio appearances include winning “Iron Chef America” on The Food Network and serving as the Valley’s food liaison for Arizona PBS on the show Plate & Pour, which recently won a Rocky Mountain Emmy Award for the “Best Interview/Discussion for a Feature/Segment/Program Special.”
The Chef brings his passion, curiosity and deep knowledge to his menu, his wine list and his staff. His mission—a moment, a meal, and a night you’ll remember.
