Chef Harrison Watchman

The Lexington Phoenix Hotel in downtown Phoenix has a convenient light rail station across the street and it also has a new, unconventional restaurant perfectly named Cycle.  Cycle is a pop up- catch it while you can restaurant that features the best of talented local chefs each week.  Ever changing local chefs take over each week to feature an innovative menu that reflects their passion.  Your servers for the evening all come from local, non profits and the tips they receive are turned into donations for their charities. 

An upcoming Cycle Pop Up experience that you will not want to miss is with Chef Harrison Watchman of Black Rock Foods. The menu will feature local indigenous foods that Chef Harrison Watchman of the Navajo Indian Nation has personally selected.  He will bring contemporary Native American cuisine to Cycle and your plate!  Seating is very limited so make your reservations now!
