Cycle - Closed

1100 N. Central Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85004 | Central Phoenix | 602-252-2100

Location Description:

Some of the best chefs in town popped up in the summer of 2011 in downtown Phoenix -- thanks to Cycle. With the worn-out Lexington Hotel in flux (not quite ready for renovations, but also not ready to shut its doors entirely), a nothing-fancy old bar and restaurant was sitting empty. 'Til Cycle. Every weekend (and sometimes during the week, at its peak), local chefs and a mixologist or two set up shop and wowed us with everything from Andrea White's South African cooking to Josh Hebert's take on ramen. In a city where thinking outside the box is far too rare, it's nice to see a creative concept in play.
