St. Francis has become one of my favorite places in Phoenix, especially for happy hour. They have happy hour every day! That means Saturday and Sunday too! Plus St. Francis’ patio is gorgeous even during the summer.

Start out your dining experience with a cool and refreshing Santa Rosa. During happy hour all of St. Francis’ cocktails are $5, and they are all pure works of art. The Santa Rosa is no exception; pink grapefruit juice and fresh basil are expertly combined with elder flower and vodka to create a drink that is perfect during the warm summer months.

Fingerling Potatoes

You can’t come to St. Francis without getting their Fingerling Potatoes. Don’t make the mistake of ordering the “side” of Fingerling Potatoes – the appetizer order comes with crispy fried herbs and parmesan cheese on top, which elevates the dish from good to out of this world! I don’t think I can explain my obsession with these potatoes; I tried to make them at home but nothing can compare.

Pork Chili Verde

My 2nd favorite dish at St. Francis is their Pork Chili Verde. St. Francis has a wood burning oven in which they make many of their specialties, this one included. The pork is fall-apart-tender with a mixture of onions, tomatoes, etc that I imagine have been cooked down so long that the vegetables are hardly identifiable anymore, they only compose one thing: the stew that anchors the entire dish. Topped with a charred chili, fresh cilantro and jack cheese, and accompanied by a small side of corn bread, this is one that you don’t want to pass up.

Baked Goat Cheese with house-made Baguette

Goat cheese is amazing to begin with, but when it is baked into a gooey mess composed of fresh goat cheese, tomatoes and herb pesto and served alongside a fresh baguette… no one can resit. It is one of my favorite appetizers; it is so incredibly simple and satisfying.

Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkin Soup

St. Francis features numerous seasonal soups during the year. In the fall, St. Francis sometimes has a pumpkin soup decorated with creme fresh and pomegranate jewels. Keep your eyes open for it this fall – this smooth and creamy soup is comforting and cozy during the chilly fall and winter days!

New York Strip Steak

This steak blew me away. It was perfectly cooked, melt in your mouth tender, and the sauce was a suiting accompaniment for the velvety potatoes underneath. This may be one of the best steaks I have ever had.

White Fish

This White Fish embodies summer; it is light, flavorful and the mixed bean and corn salad underneath is beautifully refreshing. The fish itself is flaky, tender and moist, topped with mixed herbs that brighten the already vibrant dish.

St. Francis also serves some very popular flatbreads, salads, sandwiches and burgers.
