Flagstaff Focus:


It might not be much to look at from the outside and the interior is about as big as a living room, but Pizzicletta is making serious waves throughout the state for its impeccable wood-fired pizzas. Start with a beautiful plate of burrata with smoked fruit while the main course gets crisped in the specialized oven. We adore the Bianca with charred kale, almonds and gorgonzola. pizzicletta.com.

Coppa Café (pictured)

Diners can find a dose of European fare in this quaint eatery where you’ll find mismatched armchairs, a colorful atmosphere and the likes of foie gras, house-made cheese and lamb belly on the menu. For a taste of all that Coppa Café has to offer, reserve your spot for a tasting menu. coppacafe.net.

Diablo Burger

Don't fear the line that meanders out the door at this quintessential Flagstaff dining spot (it's a favorite of nearby students and visitors, alike), as a burger from Diablo is worth the wait. Each local, open-range, antibiotic- and growth hormone-free patty has been char-broiled to perfection, resulting in bites that are juicy but with a crisp exterior. The burger is then crowned with locally made English muffins and sided with Belgian-style frites. diabloburger.com.
