Solo Dining Recs for Phoenix

Vel | Aug 5, 2008 09:54 PM

Coming to Phoenix next month for the first time, on a week-long conference out at the Black Canyon Conference Center, which I understand is near a mall called Metrocenter. I gather this is North Phoenix, but don't really know what that means, other than reviews reference a lot of Chili's, Outbacks, and Olive Gardens. Save me!

I prefer to dine away from the hotel in the evenings, but will be on my own this trip. I will have a car and am willing to drive 20 mins or so in any direction. I'm looking for casual, delicious dining recs where a single woman won't attract attention by dining alone.

After 8 years in Seattle, and coming from the Southwest (TX, NM, OK) I would love to re-visit my love of Mexican, New Mexican, excellent BBQ, and--maybe stretching it here--a really good chicken-fried steak. You can't get any of that bad-for-you stuff up here in the land of sushi and salmon (which is not to say it isn't delish!)

And if there's something I just should NOT miss, please mention!
