Barrio Cafe 

With a menu of authentic Mexican cuisine, diners in the mood for cochinita pibil or pollo en mole head to Phoenix’s Barrio Café, where James Beard Foundation Award nominee Chef Silvana Salcido Esparza works her magic. Her signature dish, chiles en nogada, spotlights a roasted poblano pepper flled with chicken, apple, pear, dried apricot and pecans in almond cream sauce. barriocafe.com.
