I will be in Phoenix next Fri - Sun for the annual meeting of an organization for which I am a board member. We are begin home based at the Embassy Suites on Camelback, which I understand is close to the Biltmore resort?
Most of our meals have already been taken care of, but I am looking for a recommendation for dinner Friday night. I am not familiar with Phoenix at all, or the area in which our hotel is located, and no clue as to what may (or may not) be available in the area around it. There will probably be 4- 6 of us going to dinner. I think we're primarily interested in finding some place that has interesting food, fair prices and decent service. I know we're not looking for a high-end dining experience. (By interesting food I mean, not the same old short-rib/salmon/gourmet burger menu.) Most of us will be from San Diego, Los Angeles, Houston, Santa Fe, NM. We're not looking to have our socks knocked off by dinner, just a place to have drinks and a delicious dinner where we can catch up and relax. We will have cars and I suspect we'd be willing to travel for good food.
Thanks for the assistance
(P.S., we are doing Distrito for dinner Saturday night, and while this group would never turn down Mexcian, we'd probably like something else for dinner on Friday)
