Phoenix Top 25 Restaurants: April 2015

In February, we introduced Phoenix to our Foodable Top 25 lineup, where Elements, Beckett’s Table and Posh stole the show. 

But this month, we are seeing some massive changes. Elements has fallen from No. 1 to No. 10, Beckett’s Table bumps down three spots to No. 5 and Posh drops to No. 8. Replacing the Top 3 are, respectively, Mastro’s Steakhouse (up from No. 13), Southern Rail (from No. 8) and a newcomer, Oregano’s Pizza Bistro. 

Other big movers this month include FnB Restaurant, jumping 16 spots, and Caffe Boa, falling nine.

Mastro’s Steakhouse, which has locations in Arizona, California, Illinois, Nevada, New York and Washington, D.C., is an upscale steakhouse that is, according to their website, “recognized for their combination of world-class service, highly acclaimed cuisine, and live entertainment in an elegant yet energetic atmosphere.”

Phoenix Top 25 Restaurants: February 2015

Welcome to the Top 25, Phoenix, Ariz.! This fine city joined Foodable at the beginning of the year and we’re excited to see what culinary creativity Phoenix will bring to the table. From pan-Asian to Organic American, and fresh Mex to authentic Italian, diners will be delighted to find everything under the sun in the Valley of the Sun.

Without further ado, let’s introduce a few of the restaurants who’ve made the Top 25 cut and have set the bar for Phoenix’s food scene!

Elements Restaurant, known for its use of local produce, sustainable seafood and hormone-free meats, sits atop the throne at No. 1 with a score of 181.29. Elements has a cutting-edge kitchen and diverse menu options -- including vegetarian and gluten-free meals --, but focuses primarily on farm-fresh American flavor with accents of Asian inspiration. It’s no wonder that this tantalizing twist appealed to palates across Phoenix.  

Less than a point behind in second place is Beckett’s Table, an upscale casual with homey American comfort. Looking for a place that breaks culinary borders? Visit No. 3, Posh Improvisational Cuisine! Its kitchen concept is exactly as its name implies -- guests walk in, tell the chef their preferences and dietary restrictions, and then the staff uses modern and seasonal ingredients to take the diners’ taste buds on an adventure.  

Take a peek at the full list below and see what Phoenix has to offer!
