Tucked into the short side of an L-shaped shopping center at 16th Street and Bethany Home is a restaurant that has been pleasing palates and offering short tutorials in Phoenix history and heritage since 1997: the Phoenix City Grille. The warm, cozy ambience is enhanced by framed, well-lit color and black-and-white photos of Arizona landscapes and Phoenix movers and shakers. Diners enjoy a varied American menu with just enough hints of Southwestern and Southern cuisine to keep it interesting and memorable.
