Restaurant of the Week: Whisk & Whisky

Whisk & Whisky, a sister restaurant of The Oakmont, dishes up an elevated dining experience in Flagstaff. Here, diners will find impeccable burgers, tempting snacks and small plates and an impressive menu of whisky and cocktails.

An industrial-chic space, filled with warm woods, pendant lighting and eye-catching tilework, Whisk & Whisky is a casual, comfortable space for families–yet cool enough for a fun date night. There is also a spacious patio for soaking in the cool Flagstaff air.

As the restaurant’s name suggests, you don’t want to miss out on Whisk & Whisky’s cocktail and spirits lineup–including a New Fashioned on draft. The classic Old Fashioned, with smoked sugar, will satisfy those with a hankering for tradition, though there are several creative, tempting options for mezcal, gin and vodka lovers, too. The vodka-based Purple Rain, with basil and blackberries, is tops. Plus, whisky fans can choose from three different themed whisky flights, made up of four tasters each.

Though the promise of big, beautiful burgers, seafood and pasta is in your future, Whisk & Whisky’s small plates and snacks are some of our favorites. The fresh-baked cornbread, delicious by itself, is made over-the-top tasty with orange-bourbon honey and whipped butter, offering a treat long before dessert. The tempura-battered asparagus fries are crispy and delicious, sided with urfa aioli and herb crema.

Among the restaurant’s creative sandwich and burger options is the PB&J, a sweet-and-spicy combo of house-ground chuck burger, sliced pear, jalapeño jam, creamy brie cheese and urfa pepper aioli. If that is a bit too adventurous for your taste, try the heavenly sea scallops, which are presented on a bed of Veracruz sauce, cotija, micro greens and velvety lemon herb risotto.

A perfect dessert to pair with one final glass of whisky: the s’mores mousse. The decadent dark chocolate mousse is topped with toasted marshmallow and crumbled graham cracker in an adult-friendly callback to a campfire classic.

Whisk & Whisky is open Monday to Thursday, from 3 to 9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Stop by for Social Time from 3 to 6 p.m. for discounted eats and drinks. To learn more, visit www.whiskandwhiskyflag.com.
