Best Place to Take a First Date Phoenix 2010 - The Parlor

Map & Details>>

Hitting the town with somebody new? Tasty eats like grilled asparagus with preserved lemon, delicious handmade pastas (we love the tagliatelle with speck, grilled radicchio, and pecorino crema), juicy burgers, and, of course, pizzas make this parlor a favorite for both lunch and dinner. Craft cocktails, beer, and wine keep conversation well lubricated, so to speak, and if it turns out that your date isn't all that interesting, there's plenty of fun people-watching in the dining room, outdoor patio, and bar area. You can't go wrong with The Parlor.

My boss took our small company there for lunch one weekday; it was crowded, and we had to wait a while for a table (hey, its a popular place!). Once seated, I ordered a burger, and just to "test the chef" - I ordered it to be cooked "medium".

Cooking a burger "medium" is no mean feat, but the chef at The Parlor pulled it off, perfectly. I have not had a better burger since then, anywhere.
