From sushi to the best in breakfast, there’s something on High Street for everybody and every taste.

Three Must-Try High Street Restaurants
While there are over a dozen places at High Street to get delicious food and beverages, here are three tasty highlights!

The creation of Owner Noah Pak and Executive Chef Brandon Dell’Olio, Patio 54 Fusion Tapas features New American cuisine fused by Asian and Southwestern flares. Open on High Street just last year, they utilize local, seasonal ingredients, and both dine-in and take-out options.
“Having two restaurants on High Street—Patio 54 and Yogi’s Grill—speaks to how much I believe in the High Street project,” says Pak. “It’s incredibly unique in a way few retail properties can match. The recent growth on and around High Street and the massive growth that is still to come in the Desert Ridge area – I’m very happy to be a part of that. Our guests really enjoy the unique atmosphere that Patio 54, and High Street as a whole, offers.”
Patio 54 recently launched a new menu. Among the 14 new types of tapas offered:
• Honey Bourbon Filet Tapas: Filet mignon, honey bourbon sauce, roasted mushrooms, asparagus tips, and mashed potatoes.
• Sweet Heat Pork Belly Tapas: Cajun spiced, sous vide pork belly, roasted mashed potatoes, asparagus tips, green onions, BBQ sauce, and spicy sesame drizzle.
• P54 Spicy Garlic Shrimp Tapas: Dry-rubbed shrimp, spicy garlic sauce, sesame oil, roasted broccoli, sticky rice, and cilantro.
• For dessert, don’t forget to try the Mini Donut Hole Gelato Sundae Tapas and Mini Brownie Bites Tapas. Delish!
Hula’s Modern Tiki
Hula’s Modern Tiki is described as, “A modern, urban twist on the classic tiki bars and restaurants of the ‘50s and ‘60s,” according to Dana Mule, its owner. Here, you can enjoy happy hour, a quick bite, or a full meal. If you’re a seafood lover, Hula’s offers several ways to eat fresh ahi, mahi, hapi, salmon, and snapper.
Some of their top menu items include:
• Bali Hai BBQ Ribs: Tender pork spareribs and mango BBQ sauce with sweet potatoes and slaw.
• The Loco Moco: Hawaiian burger with rice, covered in succulent brown mushroom gravy and sunny side up eggs.
• Jawaiian Jerk Chicken: Slow roasted pulled chicken, jerk sauce, plantains, rice, mango salsa, and Jamaican johnny cakes.

“When considering expansion, High Street was almost a no brainer,” says Dana Mule, owner of Hula’s Modern Tiki. “The atmosphere, synergy between the businesses, and the incredible income level and residential density in the surrounding area made it as close to a ‘sure thing’ as you can get in our business. And, the area just keeps getting better and better, as the development all around us continues!”
Humble Bistro
Humble Bistro is known as a local favorite that features a wine bar, fresh pasta, pizza, and must-try charcuterie boards.
“The pandemic forced us, like a lot of restaurants, to reassess our business,” shares Chef Jorge Gomez, a regular on Food Network and Co-Owner of Humble Bistro. “We had just acquired all the Humble Pies and the brand, and we were looking to rebrand and reestablish the world-class pizza Humble was known for. We decided to relocate our best restaurant to High Street seeing the promise, and growth potential here as well. Calling High Street home for our business, customers, and employees has been a great experience.”
Some of Humble Bistro’s stand-out menu items include:
• Short Rib Pappardelle: Twelve-hour Chianti-braised short rib cut of beef on delicate wide ribbons of fresh pasta in a light parmesan garlic confit sauce with a rough of roasted mushroom and peppers, chili flakes, and citrus zest finish.
• Amazing Charcuterie Boards: Charcuterie and cheeses, cauliflower tahina, caprese side, jalapeno hummus, grilled artichokes, EVVO poached wild mushrooms, whipped ricotta with chili honey, crispy Brussels, and forno bread.
• Humble Pies: The restaurant is famous for their incredible wood-fired pizzas, which are made with sourdough crust that is handmade over three days to achieve its flavorful chew with a crispy inner texture and light and airy center.

High Street is located just north of the Loop 101 at the 56th Street exit in North Phoenix, just east of Desert Ridge Marketplace. To learn more about all the delicious restaurants on High Street, visit
