A. Shake your stuff with the belly dancers at Sinbad Restaurant on the northwest corner of Price and Baseline in Tempe. Professional troupes perform for diners seated under a Bedouin tent. Get stuffed with tasty favorites like hummus, tabbouleh, baba ghanouj, falafel, and feta-spinach pie.
Q. What's a rillette?
A. It's meat or fish that's cooked in seasoned fat, then pounded into a paste, and served cold as spread like smooth pâté. You can taste it on the new "entree par trois" menu at Bistro 24 in the Ritz-Carlton Phoenix. For just $20, diners can sample a combination of three of 15 classical French dishes, including rillettes of salmon or duck.
Q. I work nights, and can't find any good place to eat at 3 a.m. I'm in central Phoenix, and hate Denny's.
A. Try Nick's 24/7 Pizza on 16th Street and Glendale. "Hunger never sleeps" is the slogan, and a never-closing menu of pizza, wings, hot dogs, sandwiches, salads and breakfasts backs it up.
