I have a day in Phoenix, looking for specific recs!
Hi everyone, Toronto hound coming in Sunday and have a day to enjoy the culinary delights in Phoenix! I think I have time for lunch, a snack and dinner! I'll be eating alone the whole day, so places where solo dining is easy are appreciated! I also have a car and I don't mind driving around.
After reading uhockey's review, I think I might try Praying Monk for the "snack" and that delish looking foie gras PB&J! But if something else might serve for that slot I'd love a rec!
I'd really like to have something Mexican, but I know nothing of Mexican cuisine so something a newbie can enjoy would be appreciated!
Only thing is no Asian, as we're pretty well covered in that cuisine in Toronto!
"Safe" or "Newbie" Mexican would be Distrito - it is upscale and thereby 'safe' - great ingredients, well prepared. I know some don't like Barrio Café, but I enjoyed my visit there.
As Pizzeria Bianco is not open on Sunday I can't recommend them, unfortunately, but FnB could be a good Sunday dinner (as could be Noca) since both offer bar seating. La Grande Orange would be a good place with a local feel, as well.
I second the Gallo Blanco rec above. Solo diner friendly both in term of atomosphere and menu selections.
