Ghost Ranch Top 100

Set way south of Arizona State University and the scatterings of dining options in downtown Tempe, Ghost Ranch Southwest Modern Cuisine has made a big name for itself in the short time it's been in operation. The locally owned restaurant is helmed by executive chef David Mora and pastry chef Lisa Graf (cute fact: they're married). Among the highlights of the modern Southwest cuisine served here is the roasted chicken enchiladas, which come with a beloved green sauce. We also like the cowboy steaks, pozole (here it's red chile pork stew), and authentic-to-Arizona sides like rancho papas. And the interior of Ghost Ranch, with its non-hokey Southwest decor and tiled bar, is a modern stunner, thanks to artist Gennaro Garcia. New Normal: No reservations; first-come, first-served. Curbside pickup is available through the website.
