First Taste

Sam Fox's Flower Child: A Beautiful Place for Healthy, Expensive Food That Doesn't Taste Very Good

When a new spot opens in town, we can't wait to check it out -- and let you know our initial impressions, share a few photos, and dish about some menu items. First Taste, as the name implies, is not a full-blown review, but instead a peek inside restaurants that have just opened, sampling a few items, and satisfying curiosities (yours and ours).

Restaurant: Flower Child Location: 5013 North 44th Street Open: About a week Eats: Health-focused fare Price: $15+ per person

The northeast corner of 44th Street and Camelback welcomed Sam Fox's 15th restaurant concept to the neighborhood this week. That concept is Flower Child, a restaurant that stresses things like locally sourced ingredients and all-natural meats.

The restaurant itself is everything that you might expect from one of Fox's restaurants -- a beautiful space filled with beautiful people serving beautiful-looking food. The service is attentive and friendly. So if that's all you need from a fast-casual lunch spot, then you won't be disappointed.
