The Arrogant Butcher (2 E. Jefferson St, 602-324-8502) is a popular place to enjoy happy hour on the patio or a special dinner in one of the elegant dining rooms. Located across the street from the US Airways Arena and one block from Chase Field, this newer eatery to the downtown is not only convenient, it is a favorite for the lunch and evening crowd. There's a great variety of wine and cocktail beverages, and food choices range from appetizers to elegant dinners for those looking for a nice dining establishment downtown.
Some of their out-of-the-ordinary dishes are delicious sweet potato tortelli with mushrooms and hazelnuts, turkey sloppy joes with grilled poblano peppers that is large enough to share, and a scrumptious roasted beet salad. There’s also a weekly dinner special and Wednesday night’s is just-like-mom’s meatloaf and mashed potatoes.
