Since many of our RF Trip Reporters have been including Museums as part of their reports, I'd like to mention the Heard Museum in Phoenix as a "Must See" if you're interested in Museums and the American Southwest. It's the finest collection of Southwestern Art in the World. The Courtyard Cafe also offers a fine selection of local foods including Frybread! COURTYARD CAFE
The Courtyard Café, nestled in the museum's Central Courtyard, offers seasonal outdoor dining or indoor dining.
Choose from an assortment of delicious cuisine, prepared with locally-grown, fresh ingredients with an eye to taste, textures and Southwestern culture.. Enjoy our classic signature items like posole, acclaimed in Bon Appetit Magazine
, plus fresh soups, salads and artisan bread sandwiches. Also, try our tepary bean hummus, crafted with beans indigenous to the Sonoran Desert.
My favorites are the Crispy Corn Tacos and the Chile Lime Shrimp Cerviche! http://www.heard.org/visit/2012_CafeSummerMenu_Phoenix.pdf
Don't miss amazing desserts like mini chocolate bundt cakes, fry bread and fry bread sundaes. http://www.heard.org/visit/dining.html
The museum itself is worth a visit. http://www.heard.org/currentexhibits/index.html
Everyone's visit to Phoenix should include a stop at the Heard Museum in downtown Phoenix!
