The Flagstaff restaurant scene is happily undergoing a bit of a renaissance of late, with several eateries turning the focus on farm-fresh ingredients and seasonal menus. The shift towards local ingredients and flavors is evident in the inventive and evolving menus of restaurants like Brix, our number three pick, whose obsession with regional produce and ingredients is leading to colorful and creative dishes that will make your taste buds sing.
But if you're craving comfort food that never goes out of style, head to Beaver Street Brewery and Whistle Stop Cafe in downtown. This local institution has an open kitchen, so you can watch the chef prepare your sizzling burger or wood-fired pizza.
Fusion is all the rage in Flagstaff. See culinary exchange at its best at our number one pick, the Tinderbox Kitchen, or at one of the most exciting restaurants in town, the Criollo Latin Kitchen.
