Phoenix Restaurant Recommendation

gki Mar 8, 2012 11:47 AM

So tough culling thru yelp, tripadvisor, etc trying to find a recommendation for dinner in Phoenix. We will be catching a plane at 9:30pm and want to eat dinner before we go. What are the best options for a memorable meal before flying home?

      Eliot told me that they are doing some "special" Sunday Suppers, to feature Chef Matt Taylor's time with Chef John Besh, and Chef Donald Link, down in New Orleans. Might want to check out the dates.

      In very general terms, we always preferred the regular menu, but Eliot made a good case for those "special dinners."

        The Southern-themed simple supper is on the first Sunday of each month, and the Fried Chicken supper is on the last Sunday of each month. Menus on those nights tend to feature Cajun, Creole, and/or Lowcountry touches not seen at Noca when Chris Curtiss was at the helm.

          Thank you. I could not recall the exact dates, though I am sure that Eliot furnished them. Guess that we talked about much that nigh?

      Richardson's is the answer. just off the 51 so straight shot to the airport after dinner.
      best New Mexican food west of albuqueque. i'll be filling up at Devour all day at the art museum as well though.

        Las Glorias Grill Mexican Food on N 19th Ave or Pepe's Taco Villa on W Camelback Rd?

        Nobuo at Teeter House might be nice, and then it's easy to do a straight shot down Washington to the airport. It's nice that they do small plates so there's no need to have a heavy meal before getting on a plane.

            We will be at the Phoenix Art Museum but are willing to drive and pay if the food experience is worthy. Oh and we need to dine on SUNDAY!! (No Carolina's Mexican on this trip!)
