dinner before theatre at hergberger

We are going to the theatre on friday 8pm and we are looking to grab a bite in the area...someplace happening with good food and not over the top expensive. Anybody have any ideas?

      I have never been to this theatre, so not sure what is around it. If we are talking nobu or st francis, i am looking for something a bit more cheap and cheerful...perhaps a happening happy hour?

        Within walking distance of the Herberger:

        Arrogant Butcher

        St. Francis is four miles from the Herberger, in Uptown rather than Downtown, so I'd skip it if proximity is important. I'd consider Nobuo both inexpensive and cheerful, but those are subjective terms. The places I've named above might be more to your liking. All have lively bars and most have happy hour specials.

          the pate is pretty good at arrogant butcher and so is the cheese / bread / jam combo so maybe some Charcuterie and happy hour action might work well for you

          their other lunch menu items i haven't been too impressed with but i would eat the pate and whatever cheese / jam combo i got last time as a light pre show snack / meal and i think you could do that under 20 bucks not counting a drink

          district is lively but i was disappointed when i ate there for RW a couple years back and wouldnt give it another shot, however the bar area always seems to have alot of energy and could be fun for a drink or two

          Have not been to Kincaids or hanny's to give an opinion on

          Kincaid's has a happy hour and is within walking distance. Most of the items on the happy hour menu is bar food, but is decent.

          Kincaid's Fish Chop/Steakhouse
          2 South Third Street, Phoenix, AZ 85004

      2. I think everyone has hit the usual suspects here- one place that I would suggest if you're a beer lover is the restaurant at Copper Blues- they have a staggering list of excellent beers on tap
