Chef Chrissy Sanderson has become a bit of a legend in the Northwest Arkansas food scene, mentoring many talented chefs and top restaurants throughout the region. Mockingbird Kitchen in Fayetteville is the culmination of a long and dedicated culinary career that highlights the best of the Northwest Arkansas food scene.

The modern American style restaurant leans heavily on local, fresh ingredients. Everything on the menu is made from scratch using the best products available. The overall style is sophisticated but very comfortable, with rich layers of flavor going into very approachable dishes.

Mockingbird Kitchen is also one of the few places that can please the whole family. They take the same carefully crafted approach to their kids menu, and the neighboring arcade is perfect to entertain everyone while the food is being prepared, or if dinner slips into conversation over a few extra glasses of wine. It is one of the most all around friendly restaurants in the city.
