The company I work for occasionally does performances for First Friday/Saturday in Phoenix and afterwards we often like to go out for drinks/food and conversation. We usually don't get done until after 10:30-11pm.
I'm looking for ideas where we can go near downtown/Central Phoenix that serves food that late but isn't too loud for us to be able to hear one another and that can handle a medium-to-largish group. We're getting tired of Macayo's and George and Dragon. I know Carly's serves food that late, but they often have a band or DJ which makes conversation difficult. I'm hoping for non-chain options that serve both food and at least wine and beer if not a full bar.
Thanks in advance for your input,
