Phoenix New Times' Description

Under the diverse umbrella of contemporary American cuisine, chef Chris Curtiss' frequently changing menu combines French, Italian, and even occasional Japanese-inspired dishes with finesse. Handmade pastas, luscious seasonal soups, and the flat iron steak are always good bets, and you won't find fresher seafood in Phoenix. It's no wonder this place was named a James Beard "Best New Restaurant" semifinalist just months after it opened.

    DINERS BEWARE! The food and service has drastically declined
    at this establishment. Last night we were eager to enjoy the
    Seafood Risotto and the Pork Loin Dish that have stimulated so much
    notoriety. Our party of three arrived promptly at 7:00, greeted
    by the friendly hostess and taken to our well-groomed table.
    We ordered our drinks, which promptly arrived and were

    What happens when a food-obsessed restaurant fanatic teams up with an equally passionate young chef with an impressive résumé? You end up with Noca, one of the most highly anticipated restaurants of 2008. Without a doubt, Eliot Wexler is the city's most tireless gourmet, who not only became a regular at the best dining spots in town but worked a yearlong stint, unpaid, for... More >>

    2010 Best of Phoenix Winner: Best Seafood! Seafood is usually star of the menu, and in the summer, don't be surprised to see king salmon shipped to one of the cooks from her family's Alaska fishery.

    Stop in on Sundays for the Simple Sunday Supper: Three courses for only $35!

    The Lemon schiacciata, adorned with sliced lemon, ricotta, rosemary & specialty EVOO, is a citrus-perfumed evocation of Itay! Noca is cranking out some of the best pies in town!

    Fabulous service, even on a crowded Friday night. Open kitchen, good wine, cocktails. Make a reservation. Downside: very loud in there.

    The nocawich lunch is the best-kept lunch secret in town. Whether at lunch or dinner, GET THE SOUP, it's always amazing.
