Chef Aaron Chamberlin’s casual spot, just a block or two north of the center of downtown, sits off a Central Avenue parking lot devoted to a large farmer’s market Wednesdays and Saturdays. Inside, you’ll find an adult ASU crowd enjoying a variety of imaginative salads and a reliable lineup of comfort food with a Southwestern flavor, like pork chili pot pie. A casual bar and great coffee are available as well. Recommended breakfast stop, too. There’s a variant, the Tempe Public Market, at 8749 S Rural Rd., Tempe (tel. 480/629-5120).
