 Welcome to 
That Place Projects

Located in the heart of Downtown Flagstaff, Arizona.

THAT Place Projects is an acronym for our first 3 restaurant concepts; Tourist Home, Annex, and Tinderbox. We now have Teatro Italian Food and Wine, along with other concepts such as Corn & Flour Tacos, Tbox Butcher & Bottle, THAT Wine Club, and Da Pino Italian Kitchen. THAT Place prides itself on being forward thinking innovators of "what if?", breaking the rule of what "restaurants do".  

Tourist Home Cafe

Visit Order Now

The Tourist Home was built in the early 1920s by Basque sheepherders who would graze their flocks in the area during the warm summer months. They built the Handball Court around what is now our beautiful outdoor patio, which is open for seating year-round. We rebuilt the entire Tourist Home building from the inside out in 2014, taking every step possible to maintain its historic structure. Our menu features New American cuisine with a touch of southwestern flair. 

Annex Cocktail Lounge

Our Founder "Annexed" the abandoned property immediately to the south of the Tinderbox Kitchen, and set out to build a Cocktail Lounge where "he and his father would be comfortable to sit and enjoy a scotch while waiting for their table at the Tinderbox".

Tinderbox Kitchen

Visit Reserve

Tinderbox Kitchen is THAT Place Projects' elevated dining concept in the heart of Flagstaff's Historic Southside Neighborhood.  Brought to you by Chefs Michael Schmitz and Joseph Wickham, the menu features an ever-evolving selection of globally influenced American cuisine alongside world class cocktails. The extensive wine list offers bottles from around the globe as well as from their own Southwest Colorado vineyard.

Teatro Italian Food & Wine

Visit Reserve

We created this concept as an expression of our passion for human connection, in the tradition of authentic Italian meals, shared amongst friends and family.

Butcher & Bottle


Corn & Flour

Corn & Flour Taco was born out of necessity. During the pandemic, having had to temporarily shut down our fine dining and craft cocktails concepts, we found ourselves staring, sadly, at a cold, unused kitchen.  Lest we sink into despair, we put on a Rancid album and got to work! Corn & Flour tortillas are a transport vessel for all that remains good and beautiful in an unpredictable world - a shining, addicting, and euphoria inducing beacon in the darkness. We want to share this light with you. Laugh. Cry. Scream. Smile. EAT. Tacos at the click of a button.
