All week long, Good Morning Quad Cities is taking you on a culinary trip across the QC! This morning, we were live at The Phoenix Restaurant in downtown Davenport.
The restaurant has been a staple in downtown Davenport for eight years now. Their best-seller is the Blackened Chicken Alfredo and house-made cheesecake. And they aren't small slices around here!
Chef Justin Burns has more than 13 years of experience in the kitchen and he's a local guy, born and raised in the Quad Cities. He is most proud of his gourmet soups.
With hand-crafted food, you'd expect a high price-point but entrees average around twenty dollars. Heather Doxstader, the event coordinator of The Phoenix says, "People think we are super fancy, but we are quite affordable. We have a price point for everyone."
If you're in the mood for a night out, the restaurant is busiest when there are events at the nearby Adler Theatre. People rave about the "Purple Nerd Martini," which is one of more than 40 different martinis on the menu.
