Come May, Central Phoenix diners have a new destination for dinner and drinks when Stock & Stable and Honor Amongst Thieves open their doors to the public. The restaurant and speakeasy come from a team of well-known local food and beverage pros — including Clever Koi chef and co-owner Jared Porter and former Clever Koi chef and co-owner Joe Absolor.
Both concepts will open at The Colony, a mixed-use development that's currently under construction at 5540 North Seventh Street, located just north of the intersection of Seventh Street and Missouri Avenue. The former office building was originally constructed in the 1950s.
Stock & Stable — the restaurant — takes its name from the nearby Murphy Bridle Path. The restaurant will be open for lunch, dinner, and late-night dining seven days a week, in addition to offering weekend brunch. Sample menu items include pork porterhouse with cipollini stuffato and black pepper pear gastrique, and a house-cured beef tongue pastrami sandwich.
The effort to showcase local food products is evident; you can also expect to find pastries and desserts from Lux Central, Homeboys Hot Sauce, and both Noble Bread and MJ Bread.
You'll find the bar/lounge, Honor Amongst Thieves, above the restaurant, accessible through a separate backdoor entrance as well as through the dining room. The cocktail spot will not be headed up by The Clever Koi's well-loved barman Joshua James, but rather by Stephanie Tesler, another of the Valley's mixology talents, who's spent time at spots including BlueHound Kitchen at the Hotel Palomar.
The approximately 80-seat bar will serve craft cocktails and a small menu of cheese and cured meat boards.

Editor's note: This post has been updated from its original version, in which the speakeasy located above Stock & Stable was incorrectly referred to "Honor Among Thieves."
