PHX - Business dinner appropriate around Central and Thomas

Hi all
Hubby has to set up a business dinner next week . As the other party is not local to Phoenix husband has been asked to make arrangements for a place for "a nice dinner" somewhat local to Central and Thomas.

I guess I'm overwhelmed with school because the only thing I'm coming up with is Durants. Help me remember what else is in the not so far away vicinity? i know there's other options and I"m drawing a complete blank...

  1. Perhaps Alexi's Grill might suffice. It isn't the best restaurant, but they do a good job of providing a "business atmosphere" and menu that pleases most appetites. I work a stone's throw from there and we always set up client luncheons there for "business discussion."

    1. Thanks for the suggestion, Seth. I'll show the menu to hubby.

      the person he is meeting for dinner will have a car available to him so it doesn't have to be in the immediate vicinity. Nearby is good though. We haven't been to District ourselves...would this be a good option for a business dinner? Anyone been there lately?

      1. While I do like Durant's, Coronado Cafe is an excellent choice as well.

          There is also Sophies Bistro.
          I'm not sure if 24th st and Osborn is a little too far from where you want to be.
