Scheduled to open this June, Central Phoenix’s bustling 7th street dining district is about to get a lot tastier thanks to the dual openings of the all-new gastro-pub, Stock & Stable (5538 N. 7th Street ), and its stylish upstairs cocktail lounge, Honor Amongst Thieves. Carved into a custom two-story space inside The Colony development, both spaces are being looked after by General Manager, Corbin James. A new Chef will be announced soon to head an expansive menu of hearty, from-scratch eats, while the upstairs lounge tempts with craft wines, beers & cocktails handcrafted by renowned mixologist, Stephanie Teslar (Hotel Palomar).
Named as a nod to its verdant North Central Phoenix neighborhood and the nearby Murphy Bridle Path, where local residents have been riding horses in the heart of the city since 1941, Stock & Stable (5540 N. 7th St.) will be open for lunch, dinner and late night seven days a week, plus weekend brunch. Accessed via a separate backdoor entrance, Honor Amongst Thieves (also accessible via Stock & Stable’s dining room) is a stylish cocktail lounge featuring an extensive list of handcrafted drinks made with fresh, seasonal ingredients, as well as a compact menu of cheese and cured meat boards.
Housed inside an all-new restaurant space carved into the revamped 1950s mixed-used development, The Colony, Stock & Stable/Honor Amongst Thieves showcases the combined culinary talents of two of the Valley’s top chefs to create “a real back to roots American gastro-pub but with hints of a casual Italian trattoria,” Joe Absolor says. Think plate-bending Pork Porterhouse with cipollini stuffato (veggie stew) & black pepper pear gastrique; a house-cured Beef Tongue Pastrami sandwich (don’t knock it till you try it); or house-marinated Beer Butt Chicken served with lemon confit and fresh herbs. Plus enjoy an ever-changing selection of house-made pastas such as Shrimp Stuffed Rigatoni and Wild Boar Agnolotti, and salumi boards featuring artisan meats handpicked in Chicago (Abe Froman would approve).
Showcasing locally sourced ingredients whenever possible, Stock & Stable will feature LUX pastries & desserts and Noble Bread. Although housed inside an adaptively-reused former office building, Stock & Stable/Honor Amongst Thieves built out a completely custom two-story space with a cozy downstairs dining room seating 180 and centered around a massive bar-top where patrons can charge their smartphones at the built-in USB ports. Or head upstairs to the striking, wood-accented Honor Amongst Thieves, seating an additional 80 people and overlooking the bustling street-front below.
