Donovan’s Steak and Chop House is a little piece of steak paradise, an homage, really, to the long tradition of steakhouses so popular in America since the early 20th century. But Donovan’s is no throwback. At their handsome location at 3101 E. Camelback Road in the upscale Camelback Corridor, owners Dennis Hitzman, Tony Subia, and Mal Jozoff have created a clubby atmosphere of casual elegance with no fine-dining detail overlooked. The centerpiece of their award winning operation is the exclusive use of USDA Prime, Midwestern, corn-fed beef, which, combined with an international wine list, accommodating staff, and exclusive amenities, makes this a steak lover’s paradise.

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.
