BY Taylor Transtrum | April 27, 2017 | Feature Features

Don't beat the heat this summer—embrace it. A recent influx of upscale Mexican restaurant openings add the perfect touch of heat to the scorching Arizona sun.

1. Chico Malo

Armed-and-dangerous with a cheeky moniker in hand (“chico malo” means “bad boy” in Spanish), this resto takes all the right risks with bold flavors inspired by popular Mexican street food and South American cuisine. Also fitting to both the moniker and CityScape surroundings is a space that’s equal parts cheeky and modern in design. 50 W. Jefferson St., Phoenix, 602.603.9363
