Eating out is pretty much my favorite thing to do. I love to try new places and things. I try to stay away from large chain restaurants if I can help it. The Mesa/Gilbert area is not as full of variety and options as Scottsdale or Phoenix, but there is still plenty of places that I haven't tried around here that I would like to. some of the places I go are chains and that's okay too.
I recently tried Culinary Dropout in Scottsdale (where my gorgeous little sister works) and the dishes I tried were wonderful.
Every time we go out, I always have the hardest time trying to decide where to go. Trent doesn't really care, except he prefers that we don't go Italian since he hasn't found a place he likes. I am always wanting to make the perfect restaurant choice and then the perfect menu item choice. I am that person that takes forever to decide. Trent says I pick like it is my last meal. So, I decided to make a list to refer to for my future ventures eating out locally. I would love to hear any of your additions, local or otherwise. Where is your favorite place to eat and why?
Some places I like to go near here are:
Crackers (breakfast and lunch)
California Pizza Kitchen
Some places that I am hoping to try soon in my area:
Tum Nak Thai
Pita di VITA
Croshaw's Gourmet Pies
Romeo's Euro Cafe
Blue Adobe Grill
Streets of New York
P.S. Abbie, you need to start doing Foodie Fridays again or some variation of it!
