The Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix is known for great shopping, world class resorts, and some of the best restaurants in town.
Although it can be challenging to narrow down a list of the ten best eateries in the area, it's easy to recommend Nook, a small 50-seat eatery tucked away in the Gaslight Square shopping center. The trattoria delivers excellent light-Italian fare that hits all the right notes.
Another top Arcadia foodie hot spot is Chelsea's Kitchen, a casually upscale neighborhood restaurant has earned a high reputation locally for its commitment to organic ingredients, creative American cuisine, and excellent ambiance.
Also high on our list is Crudo, featuring a one-of-a-kind menu that marries Italian cooking with sashimi-inspired small plates. The results are simply inimitable: sophisticated, surprising and always delectable.
If you're looking for a sophisticated spot that won't break your eating budget, head towards Postino, one of the city's first wine cafes, and still one of the best. Don't leave without trying a couple of their signature bruschettas.
If socializing with friends over a craft beer is your goal, head to O.H.S.O. Eatery & NanoBrewery. Not only will you find a huge selection of local brews, the kitchen offers a late-night food menu with gourmet takes on comfort food classics like burgers and grilled cheese.
