Going to suns game, looking for good local food

Hey all,

I'm from LA visiting with my uncle in Phoenix for the weekend. I'm going to the suns/thunder game this sunday (aka today) at 6pm. I was looking for recommendations for good local restuarants that are fairly near the arena. I'm into pretty much any really good food but was hoping to find something that was unique to Phoenix/AZ (so not really looking for pizza or sushi unless its off the charts good). I really don't come here too often so I don't really know any places. Thanks!

  1. Nobuo at Teeter House -- just a few blocks from the arena. Japanese tavern food, not sushi. Generally considered "off the charts good."

    Blue Hound is another good choice nearby. It's American comfort food with creative cocktails.

    Both are open Sundays.
