Chefs and Restaurants Who've Been Supporting Local for as Long as We Can Remember
These culinary institutions have been supporting our local farms and producers since before it was cool.
Dining trends come and go, but the tenets of local, seasonal cooking form a solid foundation that will give any restaurant staying power. Indeed, there are several Phoenix-area chefs and restaurants that have been supporting our local food movement for as long as we can remember. And, in turn, they have inspired a devoted following. That's a feat, since it's easy to be hot for just a minute in the restaurant business, and then forgotten. But these local-food veterans have kept us wanting more long after we finished our first bite—5, 10, even 15-plus years later.
