Phoenix - What else is near Bianco's?

Eujeanie Jun 13, 2008 04:22 PM

What other restaurants are RIGHT in that general area? We'll be staying at the Marriott Springhill Suites on Van Buren (it's fine, stayed there several times), and if the lines are really long and we just don't feel like waiting (we've already been twice), where else could we go within just a few block area? Any kind of food, very casual.

        lol, the obvious other Bianco: pane bianco... beautiful sandwiches at lunchtime. Perfect bread.

          I agree that Pane Bianco is great, but at 4+ miles away, it falls a bit outside of the few-block radius Eujeanie appears to be considering.

            We definitely want the pizza again, but it really depends on how crazy long the line is...the pub sounds perfect, thanks everyone.

            And I didn't realize Pane was in a completely different part of town - does Chris spend his days there and his nights at Pizza? Yikes, what a life.

              By Phoenix standards, Pizzeria Bianco and Pane Bianco are relatively close (about four miles apart). Pizzeria Bianco is at Heritage Square in the heart of Downtown; Pane Bianco is at the north end of Midtown. And, yes, he's visible at Pane during the day and at Pizzeria Bianco at night.

          Within a few blocks of your hotel:

          Los Dos Molinos -- New Mexican
          La Tolteca -- Mexican, very casual order-at-the-counter place
          Rose & Crown -- British pub
          Mrs. White's Golden Rule -- soul food; lunch only

          A little farther away, but potentially worth the walk

          The Breadfruit -- Jamaican
          The Roosevelt -- American pub with craft beer
          Thai Elephant
          Kincaid's -- steak and seafood chain; not innovative, but has never failed me

            Wow, thanks. I think we'd try the 2 right in Heritage Park since we walk over from the Marriott, that will be very convenient.

            Funny, but I never saw any other restaurants - just a museum or two. Are they readily visible in the park?

              Rose & Crown should be visible - you just have to look beyond the throngs waiting at PB.

              We met friends there a few months ago and had some pretty good pub food. I'm a huge PB fan, but it was fun mocking everyone standing in the two-hour line.

                I had dinner at the Rose & Crown pre concert last night. If you simply want a nice selection of beers by the pint, this is your place. But the food is quite bad. Makes the worst pub grub in the UK look and taste good.

                  Thanks, I've been curious about the food over there. Where *is* a good place to go around here for Brit pub grub, anyway?

            The Teeter House and the Rose and Crown Pub are both directly across from Bianco in Heritage Square.
