One of our favorite things about vacation time is the opportunity to try out the foods in the region we are visiting. But if we visit the same areas over and over again, no matter how wonderful the activities, the food choices can get to be a bit tired. We have a tendency to fall into a routine and eat at the same places every day as we develop favorite meals, but when you’re visiting the Phoenix area, you would be doing yourself a disservice by not trying some of these fabulous downtown Phoenix restaurants that are guaranteed to be the talk of the town!
