Downtown Tempe’s favorite decent restaurant, housed in a pair of old Craftsman bungalows surrounded by a shady garden, this romantic spot seems a world away from the bustle on nearby Mill Avenue. A garlicky Caesar salad or house-smoked salmon with avocado, capers, red onion, and lemon cream are good bets for starters. Entrees change regularly, on a menu inspired by the Mediterranean and the Southwest. Try for a seat on the grape-arbor-covered patio.
