Bluewater Grill

The Bluewater Grill is a fantastic seafood restaurant in the heart of Central Phoenix that brings the best of the coast to the desert. Their casual, comfortable environment is family-friendly and this is a great place to have a stellar dining experience with a big group. They’re also a fresh fish market, so you can take your favorites home with you.


Postino isn’t just another wine bar among the many that are popping up nowadays. In addition to their exquisite food, you’ll enjoy a wonderful, warm atmosphere not unlike having a drink in a friend’s living room. Postino has grown immensely since it first opened in Arcadia, and now has three other locations on Central Avenue, one in Kierland, and one in Gilbert.

The Vig

Yet another Arcadia gem that has expanded uptown, The Vig offers an open, inviting bar and restaurant with a beautiful patio and plenty of room to gather with friends. It’s a great place to gather for a Sunday brunch with fresh-squeezed orange juice mimosas, or to catch the Cardinals game on a Sunday afternoon with the guys.

O.H.S.O. Nano-Brewery

Nano-breweries seems like a dime a dozen these days on the West Coast, but what makes O.H.S.O so special is its truly local, neighborhood feel. You can bring the whole family together for brunch or to enjoy the latest local brews, including Fido, on their dog-friendly patio. The staff even gives out treats to keep your furry friends happy!

Kitchen 56

One of the most creative and delicious building repurpose projects in Phoenix, Kitchen 56 is a former gas station turned comfortable neighborhood restaurant. Their all-day Sunday happy hour is extremely popular, and with the deals they serve up, it’s no surprise. They also feature live music and beautiful views of Camelback Mountain.

Beckett’s Table

Justin and Michelle Beckett brought down-home American food to Arcadia with an elegant twist. This comfortable restaurant is a welcoming place for big groups or an intimate date, and their dishes include delicious and varied fare; everything from deep-fried deviled eggs, Scottish salmon, and their signature short ribs to mouth-watering chocolate dipped bacon s’mores!
