1. Restaurant Progress
Restaurant Progress is a new face in Phoenix’s restaurant scene, and it’s been attracting attention for its creative, well composed fare. This is for the perfect spot for an intimate gathering with a few friends or that special someone. Not sure what to try? Go for the chef’s tasting menu to sample some of the best offerings from this fresh, flavorful kitchen, and don’t forget to pair it with an elegant wine or craft cocktail from the bar.
2. Dressing Room
Looking for something delightfully different? Try Dressing Room, a tiny restaurant tucked into a brightly painted building on Restaurant Row, that offers classic street food, like tacos and burgers, and a generous Happy Hour that stretched nearly all day long (11:00-6:00pm, 7 days a week). Turn a casual lunch into a daylong affair, or stop by for a quick dinner bite before heading out on the town!
