Hi - I'm going to be in PHX tomorrow a meeting and business dinner. Does anyone have any recommendations for good restaurants for business entertaining in the Chandler area?

I'm not sure that everyone will be up for a drive to Scottsdale, which seems to be the best place for food in the PHX area.

Thanks!

    I'd consider Fogo E Brasa for a business dinner, it's bound to impress, without being too stuffy. I find business dinners are best off not varying too awfully far from meat & potatoes -- here you have the giant seafood bar, tableside service of endless roasted meats, great cocktails & wine, and the impeccable service you'd hope for to impress clients or your boss.

      If in downtown Chandler, try La Stalla. Very good Italian food.

        Is there any price range? My first thought is Kai at Wildhorse Pass.

            Nope - no real price range.

              Then I would without doubt recommend Kai over all others - below are two good links for reading more about this place.

                It's a chain from Canada, but a lot of people I know like The Keg for it's atmosphere (tables and booths spaced far enough to actually converse) and fair prices for good steaks, etc. Located near Chandler mall. From reports I have heard, it works well for a business dinner.

                What about the new Red, White and Brew in Chandler - too far east? The food is great - only bad thing might be that they don't take reservations and the wait can be long.

                Reports vary, but 98 South and 56 East would work too. I have had good experiences there.

                Va Bene? Roy's? Fleming's?

                What about the "other" Cafe Boa (not the original on on Mill in Tempe). I have heard great things about the filet.

                Is Cyclo too whatever for the dinner? Some people avoid ethnic foods for business dinners in case companions are picky?

              Definitely Kai! I went to Kai for the very first time last night for my 8 year anniversary. All I can say is WOW! After reading all of the reviews on the board as well as other restaurant reviews, it did not disappoint! I can't wait to go back. ;-)
