In the title compound, C15H14O3, the dihedral angle between the benzene rings is 75.85 (7)°. In the crystal, centrosymmetrically related molecules are weakly associated through pairs of interactions between a benzene ring and an O atom of the ester group [ring centroidO = 3.952 (7) Å], and through pairs of interactions between the other benzene ring and an O atom of the phenoxy group [ring centroidO = 3.912 (7) Å], giving chains extending along .
