Late night feast at Fenix

After wracking my brains to come up with a happy hour destination yesterday -- I ended up at Durant's, happily -- I thought I'd blog 'n bitch about how too many of my central Phoenix favorites are closed on Mondays. Drives me crazy.

But I'll save that one for another time. Today, I have good news to report.

Along with the Monday closure thing, late-night dining -- or should I say, a lack thereof -- has been one of my biggest complaints about restaurants in these parts.

Now, thanks to new hours at Fenix Eatery, I can go for a tasty French meal well after most local places have closed up for the night. The restaurant's late-night bar menu, which includes escargot; steak with crispy shallots, mustard, and fries; and short rib sliders with cream cheese and red wine sauce, will be available nightly from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. (!!!), starting on May 17.

Let's cross our fingers and hope this catches on...
