CNN's "Phoenix in Five Stops" Highlights The Usual Suspects

Matt Pool of Matt's Big Breakfast. What about sending visitors to The Roosevelt or Giant Coffee?
​If you live here, none of CNN travel reporter Brendan Newnam's restaurant recommendations will come as a surprise -- FnB, Matt's Big Breakfast, Rita's Tacos, Mrs. White's Golden Rule Cafe. Yadda yadda. Amuse Bouche in Surprise was a bit off the beaten track for a list highlighting "Pizza Bianco" (oops, it's actually Pizzeria Bianco), but otherwise, yeah, CNN nailed our staples. Nothing too inspiring, which was surprising considering the reporter did a nice job describing Roosevelt Row -- particularly Lalo Cato's murals. 

In any case, foodie Twitter, Facebook and email inboxes are abuzz with the "news".

All worthy choices, but we're curious: Where else do you send visitors?

When my family visits they usually want Mexican, so we go to Jordan's, Manuels or Arriba. Haven't been able to "graduate" them to more exotic places. :)


Oh, forgot....Hana Japanese Eatery, Los Reyes de la Torta, El Bravo


Gallo Blanco, Barrio Cafe, La Condesa, Sens, Lo Lo's Chicken and Waffles
