I'm headed out to Phoenix next weekend (a week from today) and wanted to know what good gourmet eats are in Phoenix. I try not to dine at chains or multi-location restaurants but rather try to support local joints. I've been recommended Tarbell. It's a special occassion so I'm not too concerned about cost for two of us. As I mentioned, I'll be out there a week from today so I hope I have a chance of scoring reservations at any of the places you recommend.
Heading to Sedona - any idea on yummy lunch spots?
Also any recommendations on a nice brunch? (Champagne brunch buffet, etc.)
