Compass Arizona Grill

We have two words for you: Chili Cornbread. And here are two more: Honey Butter. Yeah, we know. It's weird to talk about a side dish and its accompaniment when discussing one of Phoenix's premiere restaurants-one that spins, for gosh sake, and offers the best panoramic view of downtown Phoenix you'll ever want-but you've got to try this tasty, spicy dish when you go. And go you must, if only for the Compass Bisque, loaded with lobstery goodness. Filet Mignon is a house specialty, cooked to order and thicker than any other filet cut in town. Every entrée comes with a choice of two sides; besides the aforementioned cornbread, there's some pretty amazing garlic mashed potatoes, and the macaroni and cheese is another signature Compass dish. For dessert, we can never decide between the strawberry shortcake or the Southwestern tiramisu, so we often order both and pass them around. Speaking of "around," did we mention that this restaurant actually revolves? Oh, right. We did.
