Phoenix is home to some of the most world renowned chefs in the business. Many top chefs have started restaurants in Phoenix, Arizona, because of the booming nightlife scene and the exploding population. Arizona is one of the cheapest places to live in the western states which makes it very appealing for people living in more expensive states like California & Washington, so we think the chefs realize that the population here in Phoenix is going to continue to rise for many years. This is great news for all of us foodies that love to try new and exciting restaurants! So what are our favorite restaurants in Phoenix? We’re glad you asked!
- One of our favorite restaurants in downtown Phoenix is the Tilted Kilt restaurant and brewery. This restaurant started with 1 location, and quickly grew into a 5 restaurant franchise within 10 years! The owner is a great businessman and understands the important of quality food and exceptional customer service, which creates a great experience for the customers every time. When you go here, we recommend to try the Arizona burger! They also have killer appetizers that are always half off Monday-Thursday. As far as their beer selection (for our readers that are 21 & older), we recommend trying the apple crisp beer. This beer consists of an apple blend, partnered with the cool zest of a refreshing beer. On a hot Arizona day, the Tilted Kilt is definitely one of our favorite spots for food and brews.
- The Red Devil Italian Restaurant has been service Phoenix residents authentic food for over 20 years. The Red Devil, just like the Tilted Kilt, started off with 1 small eatery in east Phoenix. This restaurant quickly gained popularity with the locals, and was featured on several major news publications with boosted Red Devil straight to the top of the best restaurants in Phoenix list. When you come here, we highly recommend to eat their pizza, wings, cal-zones, & pasta dishes. We know, that’s pretty much everything on their menu, but their food is so good we feel like you gotta try everything at least once. Their bar is nothing too special with just a few good bars on tap, but they do have a bartender that can whip up any mixed cocktail that you fancy. We recommend the Red Devil for hanging out with friends or going on a date with your significant other.
- Avanti Restaurant is another Italian restaurant, but one definitely worth mentioning. The family that owns are from Italy and come from a long history of cooking. This family has owned over 20 restaurants all over Italy and decided to pack up and head to the states to bring their authentic Italian cooking to America. When you go to Avanti, you have to get their calamari appetizer. Calamari is lightly breaded and fried octopus that’s served with a side of marinara. This restaurant has a great selection of wine and makes for a great spot to wine and dine with your significant other.
