I'm trying to think of somewhere to meet friends for lunch that would be centrally located -- one lives north of Desert Ridge, one lives way east in Scottsdale toward Fountain Hills, and I live in north Glendale. Not an easy task, as it turns out. Personally I would be happy to drive to the downtown Phoenix area where there are so many intriguing options, but that's pretty far for the others. So I'm trying to come up with something in north central Phoenix, and so far I'm stumped, other than Carolina's or one of the chains at Desert Ridge. Any suggestions?
