With Digestif being the latest in a line of popular Phoenix-area restaurants to close, we're not exactly holding our breaths as the ecomonic forecasters declare the recession over. But there are definitely a few good signs here in Phoenix, especially in the restaurant industry. New eateries are popping up all over town; some, so silently that you have to be "in the know" to know they're open.
In this week's Meal Ticket dining newsletter, we've got the scoop on a new Biltmore restaurant that's quietly been serving lunch and dinner long before their planned mid-October opening. We'll also have info on a wine festival that's a grape stompin' good time and a west side pizza joint that offers much more than pies.
