Best Place to Meet Somebody for Lunch

Brio Tuscan Grille has become a mainstay on the lunch scene since it opened in Town Square two years ago. Its central location—in the center of a mall that’s in the center of the Valley—has attracted both the business crowd and leisurely shoppers for lunch. Two other reasons it’s a great place to meet: attentive service and a dynamic menu (from zesty salads to tasty Italian fare) that avoids the usual chain-restaurant monotony. It also has one of the city’s best dining patios, which comes in handy most of the year.
