Oak on Camelback: An upscale casual restaurant

More from this show

Oak on Camelback is a St. Francis neighborhood gathering place for the people and the community set in the heart of Phoenix. The menu centers around the wood-fire oven. 

While still focusing on seasonal, sustainable ingredients, restaurant Chef Robert Bogart highlights how they master the art of comfort foods you love while also celebrating an occasional kick of spice. 

Chef Robert Bogart’s love for cooking especially with a wood fire ties back to camping with his grandfather. “My grandfather was my inspiration for cooking,” Bogart said. “I grew up in Dallas, and we’d go camping with a wood-fired Dutch oven.”

One of their most popular dishes, ordered by our guest Adrienne Fairwell,  Arizona PBS General Manager, is the Moroccan meatballs, “they are absolutely juicy enough to melt in your mouth with one bite,” she said. 

As an entree Fairwell had the forbidden fried chicken,“it was fried just right, it was juicy, it was tender, it was seasoned to perfection.” she said. 

Guests also enjoyed the Thai peanut salad, the forbidden rice and the baked goat cheese.

All of the guests enjoyed the dining experience and suggested it was a great place. “Kid friendly if you need it to be, but it’s also date night. It’s also friends, it’s also new-in-town,”  Fairwell said. “Great environment, and the food is always fresh. For me it is a 10 out of 10.”

Oak on Camelback is a refreshing blend of old and new – classic charm with a modern culinary philosophy.
