Bidwill family buys downtown Phoenix restaurant

The family that owns the Arizona Cardinals has bought a landmark downtown Phoenix restaurant that had been on the brink of closing.

The Bidwill family bought Tom’s Tavern, a favorite spot for the big names of government and business.

The restaurant was put up for sale last year when its owner, Michael Ratner, could no longer spend the time he wanted running the place. He was in treatment for esophageal cancer and said that if a buyer couldn’t be found, the restaurant would be closed.

Ratner died in November. But before his death, Cardinals’ president Michael Bidwill paid Ratner a visit and expressed interest in buying Tom’s.

The deal closed late last week. The new owners hope to reopen soon after a cleanup and inspection.
