In the interest of sharing their hearth-bound heritage with the wider culinary world, the two families behind Arizona Frybread combined their traditional Yaqui fry-bread with recipes plucked from the worn pages of treasured cookbooks. This dedication to homestyle kitchen craft is also instilled in their restaurant’s cooks, who hand-sizzle each flat of crunchy fry bread before topping it with mojito chicken, steak, or beans and cheese. The shop pays equal attention to its toppings: red chili teases tongues with an heirloom kick calibrated in the course of three generations, and tender bites of cactus unlock the desert’s surprisingly verdant flavors.
Eest Asian Bistro’s comprehensive menu brims with traditional Chinese dishes and chef specialties, including peking duck and honey-walnut prawn.

Hot entrees often come tossed in savory housemade sauces that tingle taste buds and give a new purpose to that half-gallon of milk in your purse.

In order to craft a truly authentic New York–style pizza, NYPD Pizza holds that only New York water will do. All of its kitchens boast a custom filtration system that replicates the flavor and character of Big Apple tap water, said to give the city's pizza and bagel dough its trademark flavor. At NYPD Pizza, that meticulously made dough is hand-tossed and baked inside of a classic stone oven. Similar care is put into selecting the rest of the ingredients—the kitchen strives to use only fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes, and employs exclusive cheese blends from Wisconsin and California.
The menu sports more than 15 specialty pizzas, many of which are New York–themed, such as the signature Brooklyn Family topped with pepperoni, sausage, and fresh basil. Other standouts include a Veganizza with veggies, Daiya vegan cheese, and an optional gluten-free crust, and a Pizza Blanca white pie with olive oil and crushed garlic. Slices of pizza, bites of Italian sandwiches, and family-size helpings of pasta all pair well with sips of NYPD Uptown Amber Ale, a craft beer brewed exclusively for NYPD Pizza by The Phoenix Ale Brewery.
