What do the five best restaurants in Tempe look like at the moment?

They're a diverse lot, decidedly plain in appearance, c'mon-in casual, and just plain cozy, offering a variety of dishes that take inspiration from places across the globe. You might find ingredients such as ground turmeric, Moroccan honey, or Sichuan peppercorns. And no matter what your dining out budget may be, one (or more) are sure to satisfy.

Some you may know, a couple you may have yet to try, but all are worth popping into.

House of Tricks

Robert and Robin Trick's cozy dining oasis/romantic historic home in the heart of Tempe has been around for 25 years -- and it's no wonder. Chef Kelly Fletcher's seasonal menu of globally inspired dishes is excellent, the happy hour top-notch, and sipping a Green Thing (a muddled creation of cucumber, Hendrick's gin, citrus, and simple syrup) on the outdoor patio the kind of thing lazy afternoons were made for.
