This summer, Quiessence at The Farm will bring back its two most popular dining specials for locals for a limited period. For those staying in town, this dining experience is the perfect escape at our lush, green oasis in the desert. Recently named “Best Farm-to-Table” restaurant in Phoenix, both specials will highlight summer harvest from our own Soil & Seed Garden at The Farm, alongside other local purveyors.

Please note Quiessence will be closed July 1 through August 9 for research and development, however diners can still make reservations for the August special by leaving a voicemail for the preferred dates and times.
