Top 5 Places to Eat This Week in Metro Phoenix
Wednesday January 15
Ok, so you'll probably never get to break bread at the James Beard House in New York City. That's all right, we're not holding our breath either. On the upside you can taste the menu that Salty Sow Chef Harold Marmulstein will be cooking there on February 27. The five-course, wine-paired dinner includes Georges Banks swordfish wrapped in prosciutto di Parma with Asiago polenta and shaved fennel salad, as well as Baked Manor Road cow's milk ricotta with roasted butternut squash, green pumpkin seeds, Texas honey, and balsamic syrup. The dinner costs $55 for five courses or $75 with wine pairings. Seating is limited, call 602-795-9463 for reservations.

Upward Projects Joyride Central is now open.
As of last Tuesday Joyride Taco House's Central Phoenix location -- adjacent to Postino WineCafe and Federal Pizza -- is now open. Like its sister restaurant in Gilbert, Joyride serves nine varieties of tacos all of which are served family-style on housemade tortillas. The menu also includes salads, burritos, tortas, and "especiales." Joyride Central features a 270-degree patio with retractable floor-to-ceiling glass walls where you might want to enjoy a "coctele", craft beer, agua fresca and or glass of wine for $5 everyday before 5 p.m.
