Have been visiting my folks for 2 weeks every winter and have seen the food scene in Phoenix change immensely in 30 years.I'm in the food service industry in Toronto and am curious about all food trends. I love to source spices and local ingredients at markets when I travel around the world. Is the farmer's market at Central and McKinley worth checking out?
As far as new restos go it seems every post here deifies Noca so I'll have to see what all the fuss is about. My past faves have been Barrio, Cowboy Ciao (for the Stetson Chop) Pizza Bianco, Lola Tapas,My Florist and Grande Orange for lunch, Zinc @ Kierlands,Lon's for brunch...
Any hot new suggestions? I'll be there next week.
