Quiessence at the Farm, South Phoenix’s venerable farm-to-table restaurant, is located at the end of a tree-lined lane at The Farm at South Mountain. Co-owner and executive chef Dustin Christofolo uses garden-fresh ingredients to craft simple yet refined, seasonal New American fare. Charcuterie boards feature an assortment of pickled fruits and handcrafted French pates. Pakora-spiced fish 'n' chips, another excellent starter, offers a smoky, fragrant version of the classic pub snack. Hand-crafted pasta dishes are nearly always excellent, especially the pappardelle, which is soaked through with a buttery French onion sauce. The New York aged strip, a fixture on the menu, is delightfully spiced up with shishito peppers and chimichurri sauce. The restaurant also features a popular tasting menu with wine pairings.
