EV/PHX: need.scallops.

I've been craving scallops like mad and don't know where to go! I'll take them any style they come in, but they have to be well-prepared and fresh! Thanks!

  1. i think the best scallops in town are at taggia - they have a chef from italy, claudio, and he's big into locally sourced, etc.

    taggia is at fire sky resort on scottsdale road just north of cameback

    1. The most flawless scallops I've ever had here were at Circa 1900. The spot in Heritage Square, across from Pizzeria Bianco.

        i actually heard from eytan - the owner of phoenix knife house, who worked at some really interesting places around the country (aureole, craft, la cote basque, fiamma ny/az, kai), that he believes that circa 1900 is the best restaurant in town. guess he does some work for them as well. i definitely want to try it!

      2. best scallops i've ever had were at binkley's.

          The Nantucket bay scallops I've had at Binkley's were amazing. Of course it helps that Nantucket bay scallops are great to begin with.

        2. i love seafood and shellfish and the few times i've been to circa 1900 i have never been let down with any of the chefs seafood!

          1. We had some great scallops at Kai as part of a tasting menu last weekend. They were one of the highlights, matched with an Alsace Gewutztaminer.
