Phoenix, Things To Do

Jan 8, 2013 - Dining in Phoenix

Phoenix is the largest city in the state of Arizona, and capital. Home to nearly 1.5 million people, Phoenix has seen mixed fortunes through the years, but is today seeing a revival in its downtown dining scene which is easily covered in a rental bus. Renting a coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus from Bus Rental Phoenix is a good way to see Phoenix in style and comfort while heading to your dining destination.

Downtown Phoenix has seen the establishment of some award winning restaurants and dining establishments over the past few years, and you can use your rental bus to take a gastronomic trip through Phoenix. First stop is Nubuo at Teeter House. Chef Nubuo Fukuda has recreated the essence of an izakaya, or Japanese tavern, in turn of the century, wood floored bungalow. Set up as an Asian style tea house by day, Nubuo at Teeter House turns into an izakaya by night, where friends and business associates can dine on Japanese cuisine and snack, drink beer and have fun. Chef Nubuo has elevated a down to earth Japanese custom practiced by merchants and lower ranked samurai to cater for American practicalities.

Pizzeria Bianco provides a taste of the best of Italian cuisine in an upscale, elegant setting. The formula is simple. Provide, and use, the best of everything. The best flour, the best meat, the best vegetables, the best condiments, the best cheese. Using seasonal ingredients from around the Phoenix area, Chef Chris Bianco has won awards for his pizzas. A house specialty is the Wiseguy, with fennel sausage, roasted onion and house smoked mozzarella. Meals are perfectly complemented by an extensive wine list featuring wines from the home country as well as other international favorites. Pay a visit to Pizzeria Bianco in your rental bus for a meal your group will not soon forget.

Most people try not dining in hotel restaurants because of the generic offerings, but Blue Hound Kitchen and Cocktails at the Hotel Palomar promises a taste of American cuisine like you’ve never had before. Blue Hound’s style is to pair meals with specific handcrafted cocktails, giving diners a total gastronomic experience like no other. The signature dish at Blue Hound is the Kentucky-fried quail on foie gras cornbread, covered in red beans and sausage gravy. Blue Hound encourages social dining, where food is shared on common plates, making this a perfect destination for your rental bus group. Dishes can be ordered in servings of two, four or six, ideal for group dining.

A day in a rental bus with a group means you really have to start the day off right, and there is no better place to start your rental bus trip than with a visit to Matt’s Big Breakfast. Serving authentic, hearty breakfasts using cage free eggs, real maple syrup and the very best sausages and off the bone ham you will ever taste, you will suddenly understand why the line for a breakfast at MAtt’s Big Breakfast start at the door and winds round the corner.
