Head west of the Loop 101, hit the US 60, and you're in the north West Valley. And while it's not the hottest or hippest part of greater Phoenix, the cities in this neck of the woods -- which include Peoria, Surprise, and El Mirage -- have more than a few restaurant gems to offer hungry diners. You know, the kind of places we wish were just a little closer to Phoenix proper.

From upscale French cuisine to favorite neighborhood Mexican spots, here are the five best restaurants in the north West Valley right now.

The seasonal menu of exquisite country-French bistro fare also includes a few stellar specials.
Amuse Bouche

French-trained chefs Snir and Kiersten Mor opened their tiny BYOB country-French bistro in 2008, settling in Surprise because of the affordable housing prices and nearby family. We're sure the locals are happy they did. Amuse Bouche serves some of the best French food in the entire Valley, including delicious Quiche Lorraine, housemade chicken liver pâté, and a perfectly moist Berkshire pork chop with red wine demi-glace with roasted fingerling potatoes and asparagus. In 2010 they even earned a nod from the New York Times.

Next time you update this list you should check out Angela's inside Sun City Grand. By far the best restaurant west of the I-17.
