Cornish Pasty Co. Top 100

This small chain of English-focused, somewhat-metal-themed restaurants is either referred to as Cornish or Pasty, depending on which circles you travel in, but never just Cornish Pasty. (We're in the Cornish camp.) Around since 2005, Cornish is known for its ... pasties — savory ingredients entombed in a flaky, baked shell with a crimped edging. Popular pasties include lamb and mint, pesto chicken, the Pilgrim, and the Cubano. Pro tip: Select a pasty, but have a backup, too. Some are so popular the kitchen runs out. Vegan and vegetarian options are available, as well as an entire B-side of the menu offering fresh salads, tandoori wings, house-made bread and butter, oven chips, Scotch eggs, and English desserts. Equal to Cornish's impressive menu is the vibe‚ especially at the original Tempe location (shout out to The Beast, the hidden bar inside). Always expect alternative music, a lively patio, and a short wait at the bar. New Normal: Cornish Pasty Co. has multiple locations with open-air patio seating for those uncomfortable dining in.
