Help for a Baltimore hound 5 days in Phoenix/Scottsdale
I'll be in Phoenix for a work trip and would love some recommendations. We'll probably have two or so price is no object dinners as a group (6 or so people), and I might have a chance to sneak out and grab breakfast and lunch on my own. So I'd love a few "fancy-shmancy best place in town" kinds of places and a few hidden gems for breakfast and lunch for myself. I'd like at least one of the latter to be mexican and/or Southwest cuisine, since this will be my first trip to the region.
Where will you be staying? Phoenix is awfully big and you could spend quite a bit of time in transit to your restaurant. To start off:
Price no object
1. Matt Big Breakfast
3. Breakfast Club
Piazzeria Bianco is one of the best pizza places in the U.S. - chefs from around the country rave about it, it's that good. If you have at least 6 people you can make a reservation, which is ideal...otherwise get there as early as possible as the wait can be pretty long for a table.
