First Taste

Oven+Vine Brings Housemade Bread and Oven-Baked Pasta to Midtown Phoenix

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: Oven+Vine Location: 14 West Vernon Ave Open: About two months Eats: Brick oven fare Price: $15-20 per person

When it comes to comfort food, our go-to is carbs. Nothing that can turn a bad day around like a bowl of pasta or a side of toasted bread dipped in olive oil or butter.

For both of these things, Oven+Vine delivers.
