I just noticed that Andreoli Italian Grocer hadn't been nominated for renewal yet, and for me, this place should be in the top choices, at least for the Phoenix area restaurants I've tried. Every meal I've had there has been exceptional, and the place reminds of all the times as a kid that my Dad took me along to inspect every Italian grocery within a 50 mile radius of Detroit, looking for the perfect hot sausage with the correct amount of fennel, the imported provolone with the sweet butter in the center, the Mortadella with peppercorns or some other "must-have" Italian delicacy. I'm pretty sure Dad would have liked just about everything at Andreoi. I nominate Andreoli Italian Grocer for renewal.

Here is the original thread: Andreoli Italian Grocer

And yes, I edited the Subject line so that the word Renewal is in brackets instead of parenthesis. I wouldn't want to deviate from protocol.

As the original nominator, my allegiance to Andreoli is well-documented, and not the slightest bit diminished since last year. It remains, IMO, not only one of the best restaurants in Phoenix, but one of the best Italian restaurants I've visited anywhere. What's more, it's completely unique, run by a true cast of characters, and in every other way an absolute gem that any city would be proud to call its own. Yes, yes, yes.

If this is poking fun at me for editing all of the nomination thread titles.... um... guilty.

(Just getting a head start on preparing everything for the final publication in a couple of weeks :-) )

I heartily support Andreoli's. It deserves to have far more accolades than it does.

Actually, no. I noticed my post brackets were different than the others and changed it. I'm just that a... oh, never mind.
