As a mom juggling the responsibilities of raising a family and navigating work life, Friday nights are a sacred time for my family and me. One of our favorite haunts in the vibrant Arcadia Lite neighborhood is none other than The Vig – a place that has seamlessly woven itself into the fabric of our community.
The grass area on the patio at The Vig serves as a magnetic force that draws families like ours. It's a haven for the kids, providing a space where they can run around, release their pent-up energy, and make lasting memories with their friends. Meanwhile, us adults get to savor the delightful combination of good food, fine wine, and the company of our neighbors.
Speaking of good food, The Vig has undoubtedly cracked the code when it comes to pleasing both discerning parents and their little ones. The mac and cheese, a perennial favorite, is a dish that has received the stamp of approval from both generations. The crispy sweet potato and regular fries are my daughter's Lola, go-to.
For me, the brussel sprout salad or shrimp tacos are the epitome of culinary delight. The menu's versatility ensures that everyone in the family, from my husband Joey with his penchant for the mac and cheese topped with succulent pork, to my son Grey who can't get enough of it, finds their perfect match.
Friday nights at The Vig offer more than just a gastronomic journey – they are a sensory feast. The live music on the patio creates an ambiance that is simply unmatched. With strategically placed heaters and misters, the patio is a year-round haven for those seeking to enjoy the cool Arizona evenings. The menu, a symphony of flavors, is constantly evolving, keeping us excited to return and discover what culinary delights await us.
The icing on the cake is the happy hour from 4-6, a golden window where great drinks and snacks come together to elevate our experience. The Vig Arcadia is not just a restaurant; it's a communal space, a hub where friends and neighbors come together to unwind and connect.
For those seeking a more intimate setting, the inside of The Vig is equally enticing. The full bar, complete with ample seating, sets the stage for a perfect date night. The attentive staff ensures that whether you're outside, enjoying the liveliness of the patio, or inside, reveling in a more intimate setting, your experience is nothing short of exceptional.
The Vig Arcadia has become our haven – a place where we can slow down, savor the flavors of life, and build lasting connections with our community. If you haven't made The Vig a part of your Friday night routine (or any night for that matter), it's time to discover the magic that unfolds when great food, live music, and warm company come together in the heart of Arcadia Lite.
