The Colony is a cool dining and shopping destination in north-central Phoenix, on 7th Street north of Missouri. This relatively new spot has some amazing restaurants to choose from, a couple of local boutiques and even a speakeasy.
I sampled all three restaurants and enjoyed all of them. The Herb Box has opened a third location here. They are well known for their healthy, seasonal and vegetable-based dishes like Korean Fried Cauliflower as well as Kale, Corn, and Sweet Onion Pakora. They also have delicious salads and heartier dishes like Char Grilled Beef Tenderloin and Wine Braised Short Ribs. Stop by for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
If you are a sushi lover, you must try Pure Sushi! They serve the freshest fish, creative vegetarian options, delicious bento boxes and craft cocktails. It’s open every day for lunch and dinner, as well as happy hour from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Another outstanding restaurant is Stock & Stable, a modern American gastropub offering dishes with an Italian influence. The menu is inspired, seasonal and features local ingredients. They’re open for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. If you like unique cocktails, be sure to check out the drink menu.
Just upstairs you’ll find Honor Amongst Thieves. The speakeasy has a secret entrance, leading you to a dark room with rich wood accents and tufted leather furniture. It feels like a classic lounge from the 50s. The cocktail menu features original creations including the delicious “Where There’s Smoke”, made with mescal, aperol, velvet falernum, lime and fresno chile. You’ll also find classic drinks like manhattans and old fashioneds, served every night of the week.
If you’re in the mood for some shopping, stop by Framed Ewe for hip eyewear and Phoenix General for apparel, accessories and decor accents. Check out the cool architecture of the restored 1950s building, explore some local goods and enjoy a delicious evening at The Colony.
