New Flagstaff Restaurant Created by Husband/Wife Team

Posted on: March 29th, 2016 by Taryn Jeffries No Comments

A culinary change is in store for Downtown Flagstaff this spring.

Owners Joe and Dara Rodger, a young husband and wife duo with a passion for fine dining and desserts made with pristine ingredients, are planting roots in one of downtown Flagstaff’s historic nooks with Shift — this new Flagstaff restaurant is designed to excite travelers and locals alike.

Taking over a prized location near Aspen Avenue and San Francisco Street in Downtown Flagstaff, Shift seats 34 guests and features an intimate, eight-seat interactive chef’s counter.
“We’ll be cooking face-to-face with diners,” said Joe Rodger, of the restaurant’s innovative interior format. “There’s no hiding what’s happening in the kitchen or on the plate. We’re hoping guests can see and feel the passion that we’re putting into every dish.”
Shift’s dinner-only menu features shareable plates of progressive dishes that create a modern dining experience through the use of both familiar and exotic ingredients. Think Trout Rillette ($7) with pistou and spent grain cracker and Caraway Fettuccine ($14) with Napa cabbage, duck yolk and pecorino. Dessert options reinvent familiar tastes like Celery Panna Cotta ($9) with raisins and peanut butter, a playful nod to the childhood classic ants on a log.

“The Shift name is a testament to the fact that we’re looking to excite and challenge our fellow locals and expand their tastes,” said Dara. “We think Shift can signal a change in the way folks think of mountain-town dining.”
