The Herb Box at The Colony is 3,100 square feet and offers indoor and outdoor seating for 140 guests. The space has an open and airy feel with soaring ceilings, exposed wood beams and floor-to-ceiling windows. A rustic-chic interior brings together homey farmhouse and nautical design elements, such as whitewashed wood walls, dark wood accents, shimmering chandeliers and a sleek, open bar. We love the patio and it was a perfect night to try out their dinner menu with the family.
The Herb Box is known for its innovative world cuisine, showcasing fresh, seasonal ingredients, with a menu heavily focused on healthy, veggie-centric dishes. So we had to start with one of their most popular dishes the Avocado Love™: whole grain toasts topped with an avocado-lime smear, arugula, fennel, a sweet-hot Serrano glaze, and lemon-honey vinaigrette. Up next and one of our favorite items to start with was the hearty vegetarian dish, the Korean Fried Cauliflower is crisp cauliflower tossed in a Korean hot pepper sauce, served over quinoa with sugar snap peas and pea shoots.
In addition to lunch and dinner, The Herb Box will offer a full-service breakfast Monday through Friday, as well as an expanded brunch menu Saturday and Sunday. A variety of sweet and savory breakfast dishes will be available, including Simple Good Morning Eggs and Bacon, Bourbon-Ginger Peach French Toast, and Steak and Eggs. For those on the go, The Herb Box will also have a coffee bar and housemade pastries and baked goods that can either be ordered indoors or from an outdoor walk-up window.Beginning April 8, The Herb Box at The Colony will be open Sunday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. The Herb Box is located at 5538 N. 7th St., Phoenix, Ariz., 85014.
