Shift FLG


Beyond a last name, married couple and Shift Co-Owners Dara and Joe Rodger share quite a bit. From a mutual love for fine foods and mountain towns to matching employment histories in the hospitality industry, both their backgrounds and their visions for the future are evident in every square foot at Shift.

Boulder, Colorado-born Dara and Sedona, Arizona-born Joe met and bonded while working at Boulder, Colorado’s Frasca Food & Wine before relocating to Flagstaff to cement themselves as part of the city’s burgeoning culinary landscape. With Shift, they look to challenge locals and travelers alike to look beyond what they might consider typical “mountain town” food and instead focus on bold flavors, a locally driven menu and artfully composed plates served up amidst a casual, pretension-free ambiance.
