Fuego Bistro

713 E. Palo Verde Drive Phoenix, AZ 85014 | Central Phoenix | 602-277-1151

Location Description:

Tucked away in the courtyard of Fountain Court, behind Apollo's Lounge on Seventh Street, Fuego Bistro is one of the best-hidden spots in central Phoenix. It's tiny, too (there are only seven tables inside and a handful out on the patio) so it helps to call ahead. Though some of the entrees are more "bistro" than fuego, the menu's mostly Latin-inspired. Try the pernil asado (melt-in-your-mouth, slow-roasted pork) or Patrón-braised blackened prawns, and wash it all down with some homemade sangria.
