CNN's "Phoenix in Five Stops" Highlights The Usual Suspects

If you live here, none of CNN travel reporter Brendan Newnam's restaurant recommendations will come as a surprise -- FnB, Matt's Big Breakfast, Rita's Tacos, Mrs. White's Golden Rule Cafe. Yadda yadda. Amuse Bouche in Surprise was a bit off the beaten track for a list highlighting "Pizza Bianco" (oops, it's actually Pizzeria Bianco), but otherwise, yeah, CNN nailed our staples. Nothing too inspiring, which was surprising considering the reporter did a nice job describing Roosevelt Row -- particularly Lalo Cato's murals. 

In any case, foodie Twitter, Facebook and email inboxes are abuzz with the "news".

All worthy choices, but we're curious: Where else do you send visitors?
