    Scottsdale's new Canal restaurant is all about the glitz and glamour -- oh, and the 30 Dollar Sandwich

    Here's my dining advice for the week: Don't knock a "30 Dollar Sandwich" 'til you've tried it. It certainly helps to have a sense of humor when you dine at Canal, a trendy, three-month-old restaurant tucked away on the second floor of the SouthBri...

    Trente-Cinq 35 begins lunch service

    Any new Central Phoenix lunch option is cause for celebration, in my book -- especially when it's a restaurant I already enjoy for dinner. The fact that I'll be able to eat moules frites more often only adds to my happiness. Starting next week, on S...

    Breaking up with Cien Agaves isn't so hard to do

    It's not a big stretch to compare restaurants to relationships. Finding a great new place is like having a crush. You notice an intriguing stranger, flirt with the idea of stopping by, get seduced by the food, and end up craving more. You might keep ...

    Friday morning laugh

    I don't know if it's because it's been a long week, or what, but my ass is dragging this morning, and I'm looking forward to being holed up in my office indefinitely, with a big project to finish. It's only 9, and I'm already fantasizing about taking...
