The Hours: Happy Hour is offered Monday through Friday from 3 until 6 p.m.

The Interior:
Now we've been pretty harsh to certain Sam Fox happy hours in the past, but that certainly doesn't condemn his other spots. That's why we came into North, a quaint Italian country-style restaurant, with an open mind. The open-air bar, porch-style patio, and spacious interior are all welcoming enough and you have your pick of any seating during happy hour.

The Food:
Unlike The Yard's happy hour, North impressed us with generous portions and uncomplicated and unpretentious fare. $8 pizzas, $5 bruschetta and $10 chef boards are all up for grabs, along with $3 zucca chips. You can also get a $20 board and bottle with your choice of pizza, bruschetta or board with a bottle of red or white wine. Being the cheap eaters we are, we opted for the daily chef's board with a bottle of red wine. The chef's board what a mountainous helping of meats, cheeses, olives, nuts, schmears and bread, which was a pleasant, belly-pleasing surprise.

Next we opted for the pizza del giorno, which was a sweet and creamy combo of fig, caramelized onion, goat cheese and arugula. While us Phoenicians are spoiled by a wealth of upscale, authentic pizzerias, North's buttery crust pizza is definitely worth a try, especially at eight bucks a pop.

Big fan of that happy hour. I do wish they would change up the board a bit though...that's the exact same one since the day they've opened. Only the nuts have changed. I realize it's probably what allows them to get the price so low but maybe just change it up every few months.
