  1. You can do better :)

    head to Padre's, 12th Street and Camelback (total walking distance). its fantastic.

    1. yipes!!! i'd run not walk from padres ;) capital grille is good, try christopher's fermier at the biltmore, wrights at the biltmore resort, sophie's on osborn and 24th, or heck, i'd take a 5 minute cab ride to richardsons...or the other direction to tarbells..

      fashion square mall, if that's what you mean? much closer to scottsdale...

      i had dinner 2 weeks ago at bistro 24 - i enjoyed it!! recently the ritz was doing an interesting buffet kind of thing on fridays, trying to appeal to the hipster vibe, live band kinda thing...

      hope that helps :)

        do you really not dig padres? its one of my favorites, hands down. amazing food, great drinks, i even dig the atmosphere.

        i liked the food at lola's, but i can't deal with the communal seating.

      2. what was i thinking - 10th street and camelback - lola for tapas...mmmmmmm m

        1. i really don't - we've tried it about 3 times..right after it opened it was great, but lately its been not so sorry to not like your places!!!

          however - i am totally loving the roosevelt..matt from matt's big breakfast...heading there now :D woo woo

          ps yeah - the communal seating can be a drag if you sit next to the wrong peeps :)

          1. the wine list at Cowboy Ciao is really great! the food was good too. The wine list... made it worthwhile. DON'T GO TO THE PINK TACO, OR PINK TATTOO or whatever that place is called.

              That would be Pink Taco. It is quite possibly the definitive Scottsdale dining experience. That is to say, it's full of impossibly beautiful people paying way too much for hideous food.
