My Best Restaurants and Bars of 2021

It’ll take travel guide books a while to catch up with all the restaurants and bars closures caused by the COVID lockdowns. To help fill that gap, here are the best places I’ve ate and drank at during my 2021 travels. I’ll update this after each trip, so keep it bookmarked.

  • Phoenix
    • Pizzeria Bianco, 623 E Adams St — Thin crust pizza a short drive from the airport
    • Pane Bianco, 4404 N Central Ave — Great sandwich place by the same group further north
