About Phoenix, AZ Restaurants

Restaurants

Phoenix has a fairly well-rounded restaurant scene, with many cuisines represented and a good range of upscale fine dining and casual inexpensive options. A classy, traditional French repast is best at Christopher's Fermier Brasserie or Bistro 24; Italian feasts are top-notch at Christo's and Postino. This being the West, steakhouses are predominant – locally-owned Durant's is the go-to for in-the-know locals, but you'll find most of major steakhouse chains, too, including Houston's, Morton's, and Ruth's Chris. Obviously, Mexican and Southwest cuisines are favored here, too. Standouts such as Los Dos Molinos, Richardson's, Sam's Café, and El Bravo offer fantastic food and atmosphere. For special occasion dining, try T. Cook's or Vincent's on Camelback, both upscale, white-linen restaurants with stellar food, impeccable service and impressive wine lists. The ambience at multiple award-winning Tarbell's is a bit more casual, but the contemporary American cuisine is on par with the city's best fine dining establishments. A couple of specific tips for enjoying an unforgettable meal while you're sightseeing: Time your visit to the Phoenix Art Museum to coincide with lunchtime so you can enjoy a sumptuous meal at their Arcadia Farms restaurant, and pair a South Mountain Park outing with a stop at the Farm at South Mountain which serves super-fresh garden produce all day in three separate restaurants.
