Nightwood's cookies - DANIEL GROZA

Jennifer Bridgeforth, Phoenix Art and Empowerment Space owner, curator, and founder, is chowing down at:

Nightwood On a busy night of entertaining guests at my gallery after a 2nd Fridays event, a few friends and I decided to mosey on down Halsted in search for a quick bite. A small, modern storefront beckoned with a hip crowd, an outdoor fireplace, and a small neon sign. Nightwood. We went in to investigate and found a few things we didn't expect. A menu that included hand-cut pastas and fresh foods that are locally and organically sourced, an oddly extensive wine list for a space so small, and incredible desserts. (You must try the cookie plate. Trust me. There's a homemade Nutter Butter on it!!) Outside of a few staples, the menu changes daily, and I learn something new about food whenever I'm there. For a foodie like me, that is definitely saying a lot! Try the Sunday brunch. Eclectic and good. I love finding hidden treasure, and this place is on my short list.
