Bars & Nightlife Business Development Featured Food, Restaurants & Dining Fara Illich November 9, 2010

CityScape has brought a lot of welcome attention to the Downtown Phoenix scene, but its not the only place restaurants are opening their doors.  Downtown Phoenix is home to over 100 restaurants with more opening every month.  BrickPizza has opened, replacing Pizzeria Uno in the Arizona Center.  The Phoenix Business Journal has reported that work continues on space on the ground floor of the 101 North Building to accommodate the Spoonz, the newest incarnation of The Silver Spoon, formerly located in the San Carlos Hotel.

That’s what makes the Downtown Phoenix so unique, it’s the best place to try something new.
