Restaurants serving local and organic menu items

I am trying to make the shift to eating more local, in season, and organic foods. I am also a mother of 2 young children. I'd like to find family friendly places to eat that are south of Indian School and east of McQueen/Mesa Dr. We live in Laveen and rarely make it pass those boundaries. Suggestions?

Graduation Late Lunch on Mill Ave. Tempe?

I like Mucho Gusto a lot! (I recognize the redundancy in my previous statement). It is on University a few blocks west of Mill. The food there is interesting and delisious. Their tamales with mole are quite tasty. I've asked them to sell them by the dozen during Christmas. They have a very nice patio scene with beautiful ptchers of margarita and sangria. http://www.yelp.com/biz/mucho-gusto-t...

Good Eats in Phoenix Area?

I like Much Gusto on University for some delicious Mexican food as well as decently priced drinks. It's really close to ASU.

Las Vegas with kids

I know Vegas buffets have a bad rep with some posters, but the one at Mandalay Bay is quite good!

East Valley Healthy

I do love Pita Jungle, but I'm afraid I'll just order the falafel which are frien d balls of goodness rather than ordering something more low-cal.

Luncheon (PHX)

I would go a little further south to the Chinese Cultural center for dim sum at Golden Buddha. I am also a big fan of the seafood po boys at Baby Kay's. I think that is 24th and Highland.

Vegas Eats

Okay, so I'm sure this has been posted before, but, where do you like to dine in Vegas on a budget? I'm going tomorrow, and I am not a wealthy woman. Here are things I need to have:
1) On the strip
2) Walking distance from Luxor to be included
3) Buffets, and I mean good buffets, can be included
4) Should not exceed $40 per person
5) No chains, please
I know I like the savory crepes at the Paris, but other than that, most of my Vegas trips have been somewhat blase in the food dept.

Best Phoenix Croissant?

I also like the croissants at Lee's sandwiches on Dobson and Warner.

Soft-Shell Crabs -- Phoenix area?

I know sometimes you can get them at C-Fu gourmet and from time to time at the Gourmet House of Hong Kong. I don't know how likely it is to get blue crab from the east coast that hasn't been frozen since crab is such a volatile substance. It has to be handled properly from start to finish. I'm from the Carolinas and love nothing more than a soft shell sandwich in the summertime. Alas, I am pregnant and unable to travel this summer =(.

Decent crepes in Phoenix?

My husband and I recently visited Paris and I just fell in love with the crepes sold by street vendors. I especially liked the savory crepes such has ham and cheese. Anyone know where to get crepes of a similar caliber in the valley? Thanks!
