Buzz-worthy eateries are as plentiful in Greater Phoenix as cactuses, and they come in just as many varieties. Some are the creations of celebrity chefs who grace the pages of magazines and the sets of cooking shows. Others are local gems that serve Southwestern and Mexican dishes crafted from homegrown ingredients such as peppers, pomegranates and citrus fruits.

In between you’ll find flavors from faraway lands and cozy wine bars that pair fantastic food with great grape. And if you’re hankering for some meaty American fare, be sure to swagger into one of Phoenix’s famous steakhouses.
