Tarbell's, Phoenix, AZ

Tarbell's Restaurant Review

: Since it opened in 1994, this swank American bistro has been a hotspot for the Valley's see-and-be-seen crowd. It's no wonder. Owner-chef Mark Tarbell got his start cooking on TV. Happily, the food hasn't been a passing fad. Simple but well-crafted plates include house-made burrata; lobster and gnocchi; 35-day-aged, peppered NY strip; or pasta in a Bolognese sauce that takes four days to simmer to sumptuousness. In recent years, the mood and menu have grown more casual, so there is wood-oven pizza, too, and an array of small plates like poutine du jour.
