The Farish House Top 100

Opened in spring 2019 on the offshores of Roosevelt Row in downtown Phoenix, Farish House is a self-proclaimed neighborhood bistro, ideal for a date night or a quiet family dinner. Seated inside this 1899 brick home, you often feel as though you're dining behind the velvet ropes of a historic museum. Farish is operated by a husband-and-wife team, one of which is Lori Hassler, the former chef and owner of Radda Caffe-Bar in Scottsdale. The signature craft cocktails (we like the Farish Cup and the Cuba Libre) each have their own story explained on the menu. Recommended entrees include the pork loin roulade with bacon Brussels sprouts, and Le Mac — perhaps the finest bowl of gourmet mac and cheese in town. If the burrata cheese ball is on special, order it. New Normal: Farish House has expanded its patio and has some inside seating. Also of note: "Drive-thru Thursdays," when it's "easy to drive through or walk the dog" to pick up weekly specials.
