Here are some great spots for lunch that are minimal in name but maximize flavor, options and ambience. They may be short in letters, but what they serve is plentiful.

Cibo — Phoenix

Authentic Old Phoenix ambience in a 1913 home in downtown Phoenix, Cibo offers great artisan Italian flavors with pizzas, antipasto and other dishes that taste incredible. Try one of its creative sandwiches made on saltimbocca bread.

603 N. 5th Ave., Phoenix
(602) 441-2697

FEZ — Phoenix

An urban neighborhood restaurant on Central Avenue in Phoenix, this lunchtime must is serving up perfect midday options. Burgers, salads, flat kisra breads and more are offered in scrumptious delight. A busy eatery, it is the place to be for lunch.

3815 N. Central Ave., Phoenix
(602) 287-8700

RnR — Scottsdale

Suggested meanings are “rock ’n’ roll” and “rest ’n’ relaxation.” This Old Town Scottsdale happening eatery is fun and flavorful. Dishes are anything but average and mimic many menus, from pub to ethnic.

3737 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale
(480) 945-3353
