5 Best Food Neighborhoods in Metro Phoenix
We love our Valley dining scene but it's impossible to deny that there are certain parts of town with more to offer than others. That's not to say there aren't plenty of great restaurants, bars, and breweries that lie outside of these five geographic areas, but these are the places with more to offer than just a few dining and drinking gems.
We chose these parts of town for different reasons including variety of types of cuisines and pure concentration of options. The fact that each of these neighborhoods has its own unique vibe is a testament to just how diverse the Valley dining scene has become.
Crudo, located just south of Indian School on 28th Street, is one of the gems of the neighborhood.
Though the Arcadia neighborhood is relatively small in square miles -- it's roughly bounded by 36th Street on the west, Camelback on the north, 68th Street on the east, and Indian School on the south -- the high concentration of restaurants in the area makes this easily one of the hottest dining neighborhoods in town. It's true, Arcadia isn't where you'll find the widest variety of cuisines, but residents benefit from having everything from steakhouses to cool, beer-centric hangouts within arm's reach. Chic, health-focused lunch options abound, while dinner highlights include spots such as Crudo and Ingo's Tasty Food.
