Dining on the Corridor

by Mike Hunter

A drive down the Camelback corridor passes some of the best dining establishments in the Valley. Here are a few that we suggest returning to in the evening for a drink and dinner. Go and enjoy …


The Gladly

This subtle yet grandiose restaurant and bar has quickly become a Valley standard for great food and drink. The bar is central to the entire place, and the mixologist will impress with nearly any concoction the patron can come up with. The menu changes frequently and is top notch.

2201 E. Camelback Rd., Phoenix
(602) 759-8132



The Henry

A Sam Fox original and considered his flagship dining concept, this morning, noon and night establishment has become the top hot spot in town. From specialty drinks, a frequently changed menu and people-watching that is central to its attraction, The Henry is not to be missed. It’s best to get a reservation — this place is crowded.

4455 E. Camelback Rd., Phoenix
(602) 429-8020



St. Francis

Once a unique concept among the restaurants in Phoenix, this authentically Downtown-Central restaurant is still a strong contender with incredibly tasty food and equally as inventive drinks. Small and quaint, this Valley gem is keeping new and old foodies satisfied. Known for the roast chicken and focus on natural ingredients, this farm-fresh concept is a winner.

111 E. Camelback Rd., Phoenix
