Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.
At first glance, Hanny's looks expensive and classy, with a cool concrete decor, fresh flowers and candles on tables and a hip, young staff in pristine white uniforms.
The former department store (the fitting rooms are now the bathrooms!) in the heart of downtown Phoenix has a menu full of items under $10. There are a variety of flat bread pizzas, salads and sandwiches, as well as a handful of desserts (the tiramisu's our favorite.)
For a recent lunch, we ordered a margherita pizza ($9) and added olives. We're not really flat bread fans, but the pizza's a really generous portion.
Our pal got a Vegetarian sandwich ($9), which came with onion strings and fresh fruit. It also filled him up.
While the lunches are cheap, Hanny's is better known for its cocktails, which include Pimm's Cups, martinis and absinthe-infused drinks. Here's a toast to your boss never finding out you drank in the middle of the work day.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
