  • Wild Thaiger
    Phoenix's Wild Thaiger restaurant has been scooping up its own die-hard fans since opening, but what of its newer sibling, Little Thaiger? Don't be fooled by the name. While it offers a more casual atmosphere for a Thai meal, there's nothing diminutive about about the flavors, nor the spices here. Just look to the Thai-Ferno Burger: a spiced-up beef patty covered in the restaurant's special sauce, which makes it one of the hottest things on the menu. Take one step down the heat pyramid and you'll find chili-basil wild boar. Another, and there's traditional pad thai in all of its rice noodle glory. These signature dishes, like everything in the big and little Thaiger family, spring from the mind of chef Olashawn Hasadinratana-Weaver. She and her family use only seasonal ingredients and traditional marinades to distinguish their fiery Thai cuisine. Little Tahiger's location serves up these flavors at a casual counter and at a pick-up window, giving diners easy access and someone to talk to in case they're lonely. Thai iced tea, exotic drinks, and homemade desserts?including cupcakes and cookies?are also big draws, rounding out the dining experience.

  • Malee's On Main
    Malee’s Thai Bistro Feeling perhaps a little adventurous, Deirdre Pain wandered into a Thai restaurant one evening in the early 1980s. She expected to taste a few dishes she had never heard of before, but she didn’t expect to discover a lifelong obsession. Enticed by the flavorful spices and the delicate balance between sweet and salty, Pain soon became so enamored with Thai cuisine that she teamed up with a local chef to open a restaurant of her own, and in August of 1987, Malee’s on Main was born. 25 years later, Malee’s is still thriving thanks to its unique, upscale take on the traditional Thai restaurant, which includes doing some things a bit differently. All of the dishes, for example, are prepared in 10-inch sauté skillets to ensure that several people can order the same dish–-coco chili fish, crispy basil chicken, slow-roasted duck curry––and have it prepared differently. The same thoughtfulness is apparent in the restaurant’s dining areas. Comfy patios allow diners to bask in sunshine or enjoy a cool evening breeze, while cozy fireplaces accommodate those who like to swap ghost stories around a plate of crab rangoon.

  • American Junkie
    It's hard to define the vibe at American Junkie. Is it a sports pub? Is it a dance club? A craft-beer bar? In truth, it's a bit of all of these things, with the atmosphere and activities changing from the time it opens to the closing of the doors late into the night (3 p.m.?10 p.m. on Sundays or until 4 p.m.?2 a.m. Wednesday?Saturday). Oftentimes, the cheers of sports fans ring out as they follow American Junkie's resident teams: the Seattle Seahawks and the Ohio State University Buckeyes. The 20 HD plasma TVs also beam all the major UFC, boxing, and tickle fights. Beneath several of the screens stretches a circular bar, where bartenders mix cocktails and pour all-American spirits?including craft beers, whiskey, bourbon, and wines sourced from California. But those drinks only account one part of American Junkie's menu. The rest comes from the kitchen, where chefs bake pizzas over mesquite wood, make grilled cheese sandwiches with gouda and crisp green apple slices, and slather ribs in barbecue sauce. Meals often begin with housemade potato chips (complete with blue cheese dressing for dipping) and end in something truly decadent: a dessert called Half Baked. Vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup cover a half pound of cookie dough, which is baked in a deep-dish pan.

  • The Mint Restaurant Ultra Lounge
    Just past the vault door lies The Mint’s most valuable treasures: trays of expertly crafted cocktails and martinis. Housed in 7,000 square feet of a former bank building, The Mint nods to its previous life with money-themed drinks and rich, Asian-inspired tapas from a menu conceptualized by the restaurant's executive chef, Johnny Chu. Small plates of loganberry shrimp, wasabi sliders, and flash-fried sugar-cane pork take their place at booths cut with dark wood and cohiba marble or along seats at the main room’s 30-foot bar. Drinks include The Mint, a mélange of Grey Goose La Poire, star fruit, mint, and lemon, and Liquid Gold, which pairs a pineapple-infused vodka with Grand Marnier, amaretto, lemon, and raspberry, all heated to 1,948 degrees Fahrenheit. After fueling up with comestibles and drinks, diners can explore the patio’s cabana-style seating or take a break with some bubbly at the coed bathroom’s champagne bar.
