Chef Justin Beckett brings together what matters to him most: family, friends and honest, incredible food. With considerable help from his partners and longtime friends Scott and Katie Stephens and his wife Michelle, Beckett has created an irresistible hangout for his discerning Arcadia/Biltmore neighbors, people who expect comfort and sophistication in equal measure and get it here.<br /><br><br><br />The same grounded approach is evident on the menu, which emphasizes Seasonal American Cooking in dishes such as Creamy Grits and Spicy Andouille Sausage with mustard jus, Pork Osso Buco Confit with spinach pancetta spaetzle , or Fork Tender Short Ribs with creamy mashed potatoes, sautéed veggies, red wine reduction.<br /><br><br><br />Factor in the inviting bar, roomy patio and community table, and it gets even easier to follow the Beckett's Table mandate: Come Together.

"Beckett's Table exceeded expectations in every single way. The food is the star of the show with unique and inventive specials that use local ingredients in new and interesting ways. The famed short ribs are tender and fall apart with a strong and flavorful braising liquid. For vegetarians there are an array of choices with a special every night. The bacon cheese biscuits are amazing and a must get. Dessert is not to be missed with unique ice creams, inventive twists on old classics and some truly wonderful options. There is an extensive wine list featuring not only international wines but a large amount of Arizona wines. Overall this is one you must try in the Phoenix area."

A New York Style Parisian Bistro. A 4000 sq, foot restaurant that is designed with contemporary sensibilities, yet returns the nostalgic ambiance of an authentic Parisian bistro. Round marble bistro tables and wicker chairs spill out onto the sidewalk, offering a kind of people watching one might indulge in, along Boulevard Saint-Germain. Zinc Bistro also offer a romantic garden patio secluded deep in the restaurant, lit by candles during the evening, creating an unforgettable ambiance, or a relaxing atmosphere near our fountain in the afternoon. The oyster bar stands at the end of the 25 foot zinc bar, serving fruit de mer platters, as well as all of the accoutrements. We bring in shellfish daily, offering the freshest oysters, clams, mussels, and lobster in the desert.

"Zinc Bistro provides that quintessential french bistro experience that one seeks out in any major city and does so without coming off as french. The service was warm and friendly and the food was inventive. The dessert menu here is well worth a visit and the french onion soup has one of the most flavorful broths you will find. While a bit more pricey than your average area restaurant it is not out of reach for most people and well worth the extra few dollars. Great find if you are over in the North Scottsdale area."

"Roma always provides a great experience with excellent food and a diverse wine list. The nona's sauce on the grandma's pizza is amazing and has a wonderful flavor. Everyone enjoyed their dishes and the service was top notch. Great place for drinks and a yummy Italian dinner"

A glass enclosed keg room with 16 different draft beers, a three-story glowing tequila tower surrounded by 80 varieties of tequila, and a wall of hand painted sugar skulls from Mexico are just the beginning of your experience at Torre! The margaritas are the freshest you will find – made with fresh squeezed lime juice – and the five different types of guacamole come made-to-order for your whole table to enjoy. Our menu is perfect for sharing: why choose from house-smoked pulled pork nachos, Prime skirt steak and citrus tequila shrimp fajitas when you can try it all? A variety of gluten free items, vegetarian dishes and a Kids Menu with a twist make Torre a place everyone can enjoy. Top off your meal with one of our delicious desserts – like churros, tres leches cake with avocado ice cream and Mexican hot chocolate – or grab a seat at the bar to taste a flight of premium tequilas. It’s a Mexican fiesta with a modern twist that’s fun, bold, and upbeat: a must-visit in the Lehigh Valley.

"Torre was an excellent addition to the Promenade shops and provides a much needed midway restaurant between the casual red robin and the more expensive melt and shulas. the prices were very reasonable for the portion size and the quality of food was excellent. It feels a much needed niche of a casual restaurant with high quality of food. We will definitely be back."

The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style.<br /><br />Romantic for Couples and Great in a Group.<br /><br />Our Glendale restaurant is conveniently located in the Arrowhead neighborhood just on 59th Ave. N. just South of the 101 in the Citadelle Plaza. <br /><br />The modern yet warm casually elegant atmosphere sets the mood for a relaxing evening. The leisurely paced four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side. A fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood and vegetables. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the flavorful fun. Chocolate fondue is the finale, all served with decadent dippers. Most make reservations for the four-course dining experience but more than a few have stopped by to satisfy that cheese fondue or chocolate craving. Hand crafted cocktails and great wine list.

"The Melting Pot in Arrowhead is a great place for a quiet dinner with your significant other or a group of friends. The service was excellent although we were disappointed that one of the fondues was sold out (it was only 6:45). The dessert course was excellent as always and the Melting pot had an extensive wine list including many local AZ wines. For a nice spot for dinner in the west valley this is a great option."

"Mesa Grill never disappoints and this occasion was no less than expected. The food is on the spicy end but always nicely balanced. Service is efficient and not overbearing. The brunch menu has plenty of choices to satisfy a wide palate and overall is a wonderful place in Vegas if you are looking for an elegant yet casual brunch spot."

"China Poblano is a unique fusion of Chinese dim sum and Mexican street food that has been elevated to an extremely delicious level. The interplay between the flavors is wonderful and the tapas/dim sum style allows for a wide sampling of dishes. Don't miss dessert here! The bar list is extensive but most people come for the unique margaritas. The service is attentive without being overbearing and the food was delivered quickly. One of the best places I have found in a city with tons of culinary gems."
