We've visited, talked and written about them for a year, we've nominated them and sung their praises, we've debated their deliciousness and other merits, the panel has deliberated and voted, and these 21 food-related establishments are now Food Nerd Approved, having captured the love and admiration of the PHXfoodnerds community!

As with the inaugural list in 2013, Food Nerd Approved is a celebration of local food that has captured the love and admiration of the PHXfoodnerds community. Once a year, the members of gather to nominate restaurants and other food-related establishments based on the deliciousness of their offerings, their exceptional character, and the extent to which they've generated excitement and discussion on the board. In 2013, nineteen food-related establishments were honored by the PHXfoodnerds community, and this year's list of 21 honorees reflects where our excitement and energy have been focused over the previous year.
