I'm new here and love reading about new places. I thought I would share some of my favorite places for lunch (usually go on Sat and Sun). Hope others share their favs.
La Pressa Torta on 7th Street south of Hatcher. If you like the Ranch Market you will LOVE this place. Fresh juice drinks and huge portions of delicious mexican food. Try the shrimp tacos and a lemon/lime drink. Really stellar.
Le Sans Souci in Carefree. This place is just so fun. It's like stepping in a time machine to the 1960's. Old fashioned french food with professional waiters. The sunday brunch is fun. The food is not trendy, but comforting. The crowd is a hoot...alot of spry 90 year olds mixed in with the local Carefree crowd. Good eggs benedict and florentine.
The Golden Budha by the airport....on 40th street I think. Really good dim sum.
The Olive and Ivy near the water canal Scottsdale and Camelback. The egg sandwich is the best I've ever had. The place is a bit too cool for school, but the staff is friendly so I put up with it.
Sushi on Shea. Best sushi in the Phx hands down. Try the lunch special with handrolls. It comes with a fantastic little fresh salad and bowl of miso soup.
I look forward to reading your recs.
