Like a classic work of Victorian literature, a trip to the bar often begins with an introduction to colorful characters and ends with the revelation that everyone in the room is related to each other. Continue an age-old struggle with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of gastropub fare at Steve's Greenhouse Grill.
The chefs at Steve's Greenhouse Grill imbue the menu's time-tested American fare with adventurous twists. Cisco's meatloaf nestles beneath a warm mantle of fresh tomato sauce like a hibernating Julius Caesar as an entourage of onion strings patrols the plate ($11). Cajun seafood jambalaya tangles chicken, shrimp, and plum tomatoes in tender loops of linguine ($14), and the monterey chicken sandwich smuggles imported swiss cheese and guacamole beneath a crown of bacon ($8.50). The half-pound poblano-chili burger, adorned with roasted green chilies and melted cheese ($8.50), fuels excursions onto the restaurant's free WiFi and searches for patty-shaped clouds on the outdoor patio.
Steve's Greenhouse Grill
Located within walking distance of Phoenix's downtown sports arenas, Steve's Greenhouse Grill is a prime spot for stopping in before a game or to watch one on the eatery's many screens over drinks. The menu shows the restaurant's dedication to quality and taste with antibiotic- and hormone-free buffalo burgers and cowboy cheeseburgers topped with smoked bacon and onion rings. Among the chefs' original creations, the house twist on mac 'n' cheese blends penne pasta with cheddar, bacon, and chipotle alfredo sauce, all of which help give it its signature flavor and help protect it from foul balls hurtling by from nearby Chase Field.
