We previously have made the argument that Phoenix is a bread town. A major player in our carb-heavy scene is Noble Bread. The bread itself is made in a micro-bakery near 22nd Street and McDowell Road. But there's also an entire restaurant serving bread that meets the same high standards. Noble Eatery, a wood-fired deli and bakery, serves midday meals on weekdays in the Biltmore area, and Noble Bread is available at the eatery daily — or, at least, until they sell out. The menu at Noble includes seasonal salads, sandwiches, and pizzas, yes, but the more popular dishes here seem to be the Noble Toasts. They've got an avocado one, obviously, and a burrata-and-coppa toast, and a roasted mushroom toast, but our favorite is the tuna toast, a weighty work of art. New Normal: Noble Eatery is open for takeout only. Online ordering is now available.
