Bars & Nightlife Featured Food, Restaurants & Dining Fara Illich July 15, 2010

The summer heat hasn’t hampered the Downtown dining scene.  Every week brings welcome news of restaurants expanding or new additions to the dining landscape.  The recent influx of restaurants prompted the creation of a new annual publication from the Downtown Phoenix Partnership.  The Downtown Dining Guide 2010 is the Bible of Downtown dining, highlighting exciting new eateries as well as the established classics we all know and love.  For more information or to get your copy read this blog post by the creators of the guide.
NobuWe are still counting down to the opening of the retail portion of CityScape in the fall and this week brings news of a major addition to the restaurant lineup.  The New Times Chow Bella blog reported that Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery will open later this year, an exciting complement to the 14 other restaurants already signed on.  If you’ve ever been to the Kilt, you know the good food and cold beer isn’t the only reason to go.  The first two restaurants are expected to open later this month with Lucky Strike Lanes and Five Guys Burgers & Fries getting it all started.
AZCentral reported the long-awaited grand opening of Nobuo at Teeter House is right around the corner.  Nobuo opened for lunch on Wednesday and will gradually expand hours and menu options throughout the summer.  The James Beard Award-winning Fukuda is hosting a dinner open house today through Saturday, July 24th, an excellent opportunity to sample dishes from the menu.  For more information please visit:  Nobuo at Teeter House to open for lunch July 14.  For a look at the lunch menu please visit: Nobuo at Teeter House Update:  Lunch Menu.
