Sam Fox, owner of the successful Fox Restaurant Concepts, talks with customers at his latest Phoenix venture, Flower Child, a fast-casual spinoff of the True Food Kitchen. The 46-year-old restaurateur is popularizing the concept of healthful, gourmet food across the U.S.
Sam Fox, owner of Fox Restaurant Concepts, stands in his Phoenix office, closer to many of the restaurants he’s developed over the years. Many will become national brands: His True Food Kitchen, launched with Dr. Andrew Weil, is expected to grow to almost 25 locations in the next two to three years.
New owner plans to expand in Tucson, around the state — and possibly beyond Arizona's borders.

Andrew Weil remembers when the term “health food” was distasteful. Tempeh, sprouts, soy protein — all had negative connotations.
Reimagined Sam Fox restaurant keeps some of our favorites and adds new favorites.
A three-week renovation and reinvention leads to North Fattoria Italiana.
North Fattoria Italiana already exists in Scottsdale, and the Tucson version will be similar to the restaurant up north. The building in La Encantada shopping center will undergo an $800,000 redesign with new furniture to go with the new menu.
North Modern Italian Cuisine, Sam Fox's tony restaurant in La Encantada, will close on Tuesday to make way for a reinvention on the Italian theme. When it reopens Sept. 19, the restaurant will have a decidedly more casual feel and attitude - and a new name: North Fattoria Italiana.
North has been a popular place since its opening in 2003. Here, patrons relax on couches in front of the bar, a lively spot on weekend nights.
North Modern Italian Cuisine will become North Fattoria Italiana, with an emphasis on handcrafted and casual.
We wanted to give you an early heads up to something kinda cool going on at the restaurant that started it all for Sam Fox's burgeoning stable.
