Urban Cookies

When Food Network producers recruited Urban Cookies for Cupcake Wars, there was one stipulation, according to the Phoenix New Times: co-founder Brady Breese had to do something about his bakery’s name. After all, the reality show pitted cupcakes, not cookies, against each other. So Breese reverted to OllieCake, the original name of his gourmet cupcake business. And as luck (or perhaps more accurately, skill) would have it, OllieCake took home the crown on its episode of Cupcake Wars. At Urban Cookies, Breese, a self-taught baker, invents all the cupcakes himself—coconut, orange blossom (a Cupcake Wars champion), and even brown velvet, which is like red velvet, except it is made without food coloring and won't attract angry bulls. But it was a dark chocolate walnut cookie that first inspired Brady and his wife Shaun to go into business. Brady had baked the so-called “Urban Cookie” for friends and family for many years to wide acclaim. With the cookie recipe as a starting point, and a pantry and fridge filled with mostly organic, local ingredients, the husband and wife team started baking in the kitchen of a local nonprofit, eventually expanding the menu to include muffins, scones, breads, pastries, and full-sized cakes by custom order. But despite their success, Brady and Shaun never forget the role the community played in their shop's early days. And so they frequently give back by supporting various area non-profits, including Kitchen on the Street, which provides meals to needy children.

Sushi Eye’s head chef Richard Cho playfully invents tangles of traditional and unorthodox sushi ingredients that earned the restaurant the Best Sushi title in 2006 and Best Maki award in 2007 from the Phoenix New Times. “Cho's a real maestro of maki and is always adding new ones to his menu, so repeat visits are obligatory,” the writer reported, going on to laud items such as the ASU roll, a bundle of shrimp tempura, spicy tuna, and macadamia nuts. Many of the rolls can be seen topped with Sushi Eye's signature garnish of macadamia nuts and tobiko or drizzled with unagi sauce. Away from the sushi bar, flames lap hungrily at short ribs marinated in a mild sweet sauce, and broiled unagi donburi combines eel with veggies, eggs, and rice.

Sage-green walls and expanses of sleek, dark wood surround diners as they busy their hands with chopsticks, thick morsels of sashimi, or reenactments of famous pickle-jar openings. Playful zephyrs slip through the bar, which bridges the dining room and the covered outdoor patio. Ice jingles in an array of cocktails beneath flat-screen televisions, and heat lamps and fairy lights radiate warmth and luminescence over clusters of cushioned benches. Their wine list features more than 60 bottles along with dozens of craft beers to choose from.

There's nothing humble about Humble Pie's pizza crust: Pulled from wood-fired ovens with a light, bubbly texture that crisps at lightly charred edges, it cracks to release a subtle aroma of smoke and yeast. For owner Tom Kaufman, the recipe demanded two months of tinkering and one month of building an underground vault to keep it from prying eyes. Customers tend to think the time was worth it as they bite into delicate slices topped with careful combinations of veggies, meats and cheeses, often locally sourced.

The potato-and-roasted-garlic pizza, for example, happily marries the fragrances of gorgonzola and rosemary. Retaining a botanical touch even on a meat-lover's pie, the Schreiners Sicilian Sausage sprinkles homemade mozzarella with "sprigs of roasted fennel [that] add another aromatic dimension," according to Phoenix New Times.

While the pizza may push some of the other menu items out of the limelight, fresh salads, grilled sandwiches, and traditional and twisted pastas earnestly pine for appetites' affections. The Our Way" Mac & Cheese adds aged white cheddar, italian bacon, and bread crumbs, distinguishing itself from its boxed brethren while forming an equally fun medium for kids' art projects, while wine, beer, and seasonal cocktails pair well with plates and pies alike.

Wild Thaiger

The menu at Wild Thaiger is so colorful and esoteric it would almost come as no surprise if the thaiger ribs were made from actual tiger. Don't worry, they aren't. The half and full slabs are actually made from tender pork, marinated in a blend of spices. To get a real taste of a jungle beast, order the decha boar, sliced thin and served with green beans, bamboo shoots, and hot red chili sauce. The wild boar is one of many specialties pioneered by chef Olashawn Hasadinratana-Weaver. She and her family rely on seasonal ingredients and traditional marinades to distinguish their fiery Thai cuisine, which ranges from ubiquitous plates of pad Thai to a citrus-tinted seafood panang curry. Though the herb blends are complex, the kitchen keeps no secrets. Diners who sit indoors can watch as chefs toss their meals in the blazing fire wok, searing meats and Asian veggies with touches of lemongrass, basil, and lime, but no MSG. Alternatively, the protected patio provides shelter for outdoor suppers that might otherwise be ruined by errant fly balls. There, hot days herald bowls of homemade coconut and durian ice cream, or a chilled cocktail from the full bar, where imported beers and wines also make a strong showing.

With more than 700 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company's product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.

Blended drinks dominate the menu, with options including fruit refreshers—made with naturally hydrating, electrolytic coconut water—and pre-boosted smoothies that can fill nutritional gaps with infusions of protein, immunity boosters, or antioxidants that neutralize accidentally swallowed pool water. The drink list also includes organic house-blend coffee and Talbot Teas, including Paris Breakfast and SOHO Earl.

For those with heartier appetites, steel-cut oats steep in soymilk before being enhanced with toppings such as apples, cinnamon, and brown-sugar crumble. The lunch hour presents protein-packed mini wraps, toasted bistro sandwiches and California Flatbreads that pack only about 320–420 calories each.
