5 Best Restaurants in The Biltmore Neighborhood Right Now
The Smokey pizza at The Parlor.
You'd never know that fine dining has taken a downturn when you look at the restaurant scene in the Biltmore neighborhood. This upscale area surrounding the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa continues to be one of the best dining and shopping destinations in town. There's been a lot of growth in the area recently, but some of our favorite spots continue to be those that have been neighborhood staples for years.

Risotto with grilled white Kaua'i shrimp from The Parlor in Phoenix.
It's easy to love The Parlor, where gourmet pizza meets stylish design. For years this has been one of our go-to spots for a meal that feels fancy without breaking the budget. We're happy to pay $10 for a pie topped with Schriener's sausage, creamy burrata, or fresh rock shrimp. And just when you think you've eaten your way through the menu, they change it up with seasonal offerings like summer corn pizza or a new handmade pasta. The drinks are also worth your while, thanks to bartender Michael Allmandinger who makes award-winning designs on cocktail foam.
