Dining Review: Fez

In this beautiful spring weather, nothing sounds tastier than a light salad on a breezy, open patio. Fez, a Phoenix based restaurant and urban bar located just a few blocks south of the Central and Indian School light rail stop offers this and much more. Featuring “American fare with a Moroccan flair” as their website boasts, Fez serves up tasty plates like the Strawberry Blueberry Almond salad and the Casablanca Chicken Sandwich. After hoping off the light rail after work last week I met a friend for an early dinner at Fez. At 5:30 p.m. the hip restaurant is filled with working class urbanites in heels and business suits ordering drinks and dinner at the bar. My friend and I opted for outdoor seating so that we could people watch and take in the warm, early evening air that Arizona affords so nicely at this time of year. The waiters were very friendly and after browsing the menu I decided on the blue cheese balsamic burger cooked to medium while my friend ordered the fez kisra, a type of thin crust pizza. The burger was seasoned really well and the blue cheese gave it a strong creaminess that I really enjoyed. As we were leaving the restaurant I spotted a few brightly colored drinks lining the counter of the bar and I thought to myself, “Not only am I coming back, but I’m ordering drinks next time too.”
