Your Guide the Newest of the New Phoenix Restaurants
Bobby Q’s, you may have known them as Bobby McGee’s back in the day, has been doling out succulent barbeque in the Valley since 2005 and now they have landed in central Phoenix. Their dining room is spacious, welcoming and the staff is always friendly and full of recommendations. Their brisket and mac and cheese will never, ever let you down! // 3154 E. Camelback Road, Phoenix, 602.626.8856, bobbyq.net
On the hunt for something healthy and quick? Flame Broiler hits both notes serving up flavorful and hearty fresh food fast! Choose from chicken, beef or tofu (each with their own special marinades), veggies and then brown or white rice. Seems simple, but the flavors are deep and rich. Simple, healthy, delicious! // 950 E. Bell Road, Phoenix, 602.493.2079, flamebroilerusa.com
This cozy, comfortable spot is reminiscent of a family dining room from the familiar seating to the photos and hanging plants. Glai Baan is serving up the best Thai street style fare, with their noodle dishes being what everyone is talking about. Make sure to add on their dumplings and son-in-law eggs to your order. (And we hear their adult teas are to Thai for!) // 2333 E. Osborn Road, Phoenix, 602.595.5881
If this new restaurant doesn’t give you all the feels, I’m not sure what will. Mission Possible is the latest project from Phoenix Rescue Mission. The Café is actually part of their vocational development program which will be an 8-month course specifically designed to get participants back on their feet. Open for breakfast and lunch, you’ll find items like chilaquiles, breakfast burritos, tacos, burros and enchiladas. They are literally transforming lives, one meal at a time. //1516 E. Van Buren St., Phoenix, 602.688.6219, missionpossiblecafe.com
Whether you are a fully-fledged healthy person or are looking to incorporate healthier eating into your lifestyle, ProteinHouse has you covered. This fast-casual eatery is conveniently located and easy to love. They’ve got you covered for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If multigrain whey protein pancakes are your things or if you prefer a traditional breakfast or some loaded oatmeal, I can’t think of a better way to start the day. For lunch and dinner there are a wide array of wraps, high protein burgers, bowls and salads to please any tastes. The options are endless and delicious! // 3141 E. Indian School Road, Phoenix, 602.354.5400, protein-house.com
The contrast of industrial and modern in the interior of The Sicilian Butcher work well in a way you might not imagine. Meatballs and charcuterie are the stars of the show here, and with good reason. The choose your own meatball adventure is a stroke of genius. Choose from 11 different varieties of meatballs, 9 different sauces and 10 different bases, or bottoms. More than anything, though, I cannot wait to get my hands on their crispy cuttlefish and mozzarella en Carozza! // 15530 N. Tatum Blvd., Phoenix, 602.775.5140, thesicilianbutcher.com
This intriguing fast-casual Indian spot is located just near the Harkins theatre, making it perfect for pre or post movie watching. The concept is similar to that of Subway or Chipotle, but only in the “build your own” idea. You’ll find authentic Indian flavors in every dish, but their curries are where it’s at. We are also loving the masala fries and the fact that offer a kids menu. // 7000 E. Mayo Blvd., Phoenix, 480.207.1925, twistedcurry.com
This new spot features a vibrant dining room with a pressed tin ceiling, little pops of color here and there along with some exposed brick. Their brunch menu hits all the marks, especially the loaded breakfast taters. Who could resist a hash brown casserole smothered in white gravy? Add in some pepper jack cheese, an egg your way, chorizo, tomatoes and either ranch or sour cream and you have the makings of my dream breakfast. Add in a mimosa flight and call it a day! //2601 N. Central Ave., Phoenix, 602.466.2074, 2601oncentralphx.com
