What's the best Steakhouse int the PHX area?

The wife and I love Mastros Cityhall but it could get very loud if you're seated in the lounge area. We love the view at J&G but prefer the steaks at Mastros more.

Arizona produced jerky

We bought some beef crisps recently at the Gilbert Farmers Market and were not a fan of them. Taste exactly how it sounds. Paper thin crispy jerky. Our favorite and we often drive to Sedona just for them is Buck Thornton World of Jerky. http://www.worldofjerky.com/product.html
Absolutely love the black pepper jerky and garlic jerky!

Contigo Peru [Mesa]

Anniversary dinner

We celebrated our first wedding anniversary last year at Cork in Chandler. The meal was fantastic and so was the service! Without breaking the bank like Kai or T Cooks I would highly recommend them. On a side note we just celebrated our second anniversary last week at Gordon Ramsay's in LA. Cork was leaps and bounds better for a third of the price. Happy anniversary!

Chef Curtiss going to Fox Concept...

I have nothing against Fox Concept and also do enjoy some of his restaurants. We're a fan of NOCA and have chatted with Chef Curtiss through the kitchen on several occassions. I just got the sense he was more of a grassroot independent type of chef so yeah it was a bit of a surprise. From reading the AZCentral article we look forward to trying North and hopefully he'll continue to bring some of the amazing flavors and idea to the new outpost.

NOCA replacement Chef...

Has been named Matt Taylor former Chef at Metro Brasserie in Scottsdale. Not familiar with him but was very happy with the food Chef Curtiss was cranking out. Anyone have any input on Chef Taylor?

China King and San Diego Bay Restaurant

Had my mom in from Boston to visit for a few days and here are is a quick review of our dining.

China King- We had dim sum on a weekday morning and ordered the usual suspect. Taro cake, shrimp dumpling, chicken feet, tofu wrapped pork, tripe, rice noodle and shrimp. My wife and I usually go to Phoenix Palace on Dobson and Warner but I thought China King was a tad better this time around. Best part of our meal was when our periwinkle w/ blackbean sauce came out and the remark we got from the table next to us. I guess we rather eat snails at 11:15 AM then combination plate #1, #12, #5 etc ;-)

San Diego Bay- I've been wanting to try this place for a very long time but the location had my wife thinking twice especially dining at night. After a trip to IKEA my mom and I stopped in for lunch. This place is awesome! We had the Seafood Coctail Combo, San Diego Shrimp and the fried whole red snapper. The cocktail combo was a chilled spicy tomato/cucumber broth filled with fresh snails, octopus, oysters, shrimps and clams. The large bowl was packed with all the goodies for only $10! San Diego Shrimp was a crabmeat/oaxaca cheese stuffed shrimp wrapped with bacon. It was covered with a spicy tomatillo cream sauce served with rice and bean another solid dish. Lastly the fried whole red snapper was served with a vinegar base sauce with banana peppers. We asked for flour tortillas and made fish tacos out of the meal. The snapper was huge and fried perfectly! We spoke little spanish and the staff spoke even less english but they were so friendly in steering us with their favorite dishes. The menu was quite extensive and I cannot wait to come back. This place is truly a hidden gem!

4 Nights in Scottsdale

I'm just curiosity how your stay was over Memorial Day Weekend? I know yourself and Rubee were talking about it recently. I've recently won a gift cert for either Wild Horse or Talking Stick and have not decided on where to go.

A DT Phoenix Staycation - Miracle Mile Deli, The Clarendon, Durant's, Nobuo at Teeter House & Gallo Blanco

Ahhh, pastrami from Sam's and eating it in the common...what memories! I must try the Miracle Mile soon seeing as I only work 1/2 mile down the road. Lately we've been ordering from Duck & Decanter although good it's kinda pricey.

Looking for one tasty dinner in Phoenix

Another place you might want to try in Chandler is Secreto. We had happy hour there not too long ago and was very happy with the service and food. The menu is similar to Richardson's in PHX which gets pretty good reviews here. The restaurant is about 3.5 miles from The Wild Horse.
