Need North Scottsdale dinner recommendations

Hello! I'm looking for recommendations near the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess (within a 10-15 min. drive) for a group of 22 on a Monday night. Entrees up to around $25-30. Regional cuisine would be great, as would American/Californian...something with a diverse enough menu so there's something for everyone. We're a group of road warriors from all over the country who'll need good food & drink after an all-day meeting. Thanks for any input!

  1. I'd recommend Four Peaks Brewery. Close to your hotel; good, home-brewed beers; good food with an Arizona twist, and they can probably fit your whole group upstairs.

    15730 N Pima Rd # D5-7, Scottsdale, AZ

    1. The area around the Princess is beautiful, but tends to be full of chain (albeit upscale) places.

      Los Olivos Norte is a good option (and is local, independently owned) for Mexican food

      Also, although it doesn't fit your original criteria, Flo's Restaurants are great - quite a crowd pleaser. Several locations and concepts.

      Another fun choice that is quite casual (think borderline grubby) but very Arizona-ish is Greasewood Flat

      Or, I have had some great experiences at Havana Cafe -

      Another choice could be the Persian Room - good food, good prices, upscale enough but not formal.

      The linking tool doesn't seem to be working for me right now, sorry!

        Try Sassi up @ Alma School and Happy Valley...they can definitely accomodate a's a beautiful space...w/ beautiful views of the Valley

      2. Hmm ... sounds like a hungry, rowdy crowd ... Roaring Fork is your answer, Scottsdale Road near Chaparral, south of Lincoln -- 10-15 minutes from your hotel.

        Roaring Fork
        4800 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85251

        1. Spotted Donkey Cantina up at El pedregal (boulders Resort). It is max 10 min north on Scottsdale Road and the food as well as the drinks are very darn good. Food is southwestern with a twist.
