Seeped in history, the Landmark restaurant is truly a Phoenix landmark. Located in a building that served as a church, a college, and offices for an insurance company, the Landmark Restaurant is a little slice of Phoenix’s past. But don’t come here just for a history lesson. The menu is filled with succulent steaks, delicate seafood, and classic comfort food such as Beef Stroganoff, Stuffed Meatloaf, and Grilled Ham. A dining experience at the Landmark is not complete without the “salad room”—an entire room converted to a salad bar, featuring both traditional and eclectic, hearty and healthy, and hot and cold “salad” fare. Entrance to the room is included with any entrée and is also available separately—one trip could easily be as a meal in itself.

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.
