Everyone has that “special occasion” restaurant – your go to place to celebrate promotions, new jobs, birthdays, homecomings etc. That restaurant for me is Beckett’s Table.

Located in Phoenix’s Arcadia neighborhood, Beckett’s Table has delicious, upscale comfort food at affordable prices. I’ve had the chance to taste almost every menu item at Beckett’s from the many celebrations with family and friends, and I’ve been consistently impressed with each bite. My favorite dish is the Pork Oso Bucco Confit – it’s close your eyes and savor each bite good. The pork literally melts in your mouth. Tip, save room for dessert or perhaps order it first. Beckett’s has fantastic desserts with my personal favorite being the death by chocolate, or maybe the nutella chocolate puddin’, or maybe the chocolate dipped bacon s’mores, oh my. Okay, so maybe just bring a whole group so you can “share” a few desserts.

Beckett’s Table also has a carefully crafted wine and beer list, with a great selection of local Arizona wine and beer. You also must check out their cocktails like the Pain Killer, the Palmaire or the Four Peaches Beer Cocktail (only available in the summer).
