Phoenix is full of fantastic food and incredible musical talents. Sometimes it feels overwhelming to pick a place to eat. There are just so many options when I am asked, “Where do you want to eat?”. Beckett’s Table is now creating an “Unplugged” evening that combines good food, half-priced bottles of Arizona wine, and live music from a talented local artist that is worth the night out.
The Beckett's Table Food and Music Experience
I was raised in a home where food is an experience. Food is the accent to laughter and love—something to come together over and celebrate. Music was a centerpiece of my childhood. When good food and good music come together, it is an unbeatable experience. At Beckett’s Table, Executive Chef Justin Beckett, his wife Michelle and their partners Scott and Katie Stephens, invite us to “come together” for a night of not just comfort food but also live music performed by local talent.
I love the relaxed atmosphere and homey feel of the restaurant. The Southern-inspired food is served in a comfortable atmosphere where everything is perfect for sharing. I was able to check out their newest Beckett’s Table Unplugged Sunday with my mom this past weekend.
Enjoying the Food at Beckett's Table
We had amazing food at Beckett's Table. My mom particularly lit up over the shrimp, sausage, and local grits. Creamy grits, sausage, shrimp and braised greens were perfect for a brisk Arizona evening.
I enjoyed the seared organic Scottish salmon. I was delighted that it was served on a golden beet risotto that it was served on. I love the focus on local options at Beckett’s Table and really enjoyed my glass of a local Arizona red blend. Sunday night has always been the night to enjoy a bottle of Arizona wine at half price.
The food was wonderful (as usual) but the performance by Amelia took the evening to the next level. Amelia performed well-known hits like Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah alongside newer songs like La Roux’s Bulletproof. Accompanied by her acoustic guitar, the music was the perfect volume. It was loud enough to enjoy her charming, clear voice over the conversations of other tables, but not so loud that we couldn’t enjoy catching up at our table.
The staff is always welcoming and knowledgeable and we have never felt rushed. It was the perfect ambiance for a relaxing evening before the start of another busy week.
