Nestled in the foothills of Carefree, comes your new favorite spot: Confluence restaurant. Reimagined from chef Brandon Gauthier, the menu will still have a focus on fresh, and local but will be more of an elevated and modern cuisine. A casual lunch spot will turn in to a wonderful date night dinner place. Chef Brandon, in his “spare time”, enjoys fly fishing and this is where the name was dreamed up. Along with his wife, who will be running the front of the house, they felt the word Confluence has meaning. Two rivers coming together: they both trained for many years under Chef Binkley, and have now merged into one and making their dream happen, owning their own restaurant. Join them for a wonderful experience and amazing food.


At Confluence, we believe in serving up healthy options without sacrificing flavor. We have a cozy bistro interior as well as an open patio with mountain views: Chef Brandon wants to make this restaurant unique to the area, where you can order a la carte however it is meant to have multiple courses and tastings. The wine list will be worldly with a heavy by the glass section – so you can enjoy all of your favorites. As vegetables have always been a favorite of Chef Binkley, Chef Brandon will carry that tradition on as have many vegetable options available, many locally sourced.
