We'll be staying close to the Mayo hospital for a few weeks and I'm hoping to get some recommendations on places to try in the vicinity (hopefully within 10-12 miles).

    Any preferred food types?

    Here are a few to start:
    Zinc Bistro (French) is about 2 miles away (@ Kierland Commons).
    Kampai (Sushi) is also about 2 miles away.
    Binkley's ("classically influenced contemporary American") is right on the border of your travel limits but definitely worth the drive.

    The link for Binkley's isn't working but here's their website:

      This location was discussed extensively just a week ago in this thread:

        The previous thread above refers to the Mayo Clinic off of Shea near Fountain Hills....
        chaiwalla I think you are looking for rec's near the Mayo Hospital off of Tatum and Mayo Blvd.

        The Mayo Hospital itself has a very nice cafeteria with very creative daily specials such as Thai, Indian and great sefood selections such as walleye and tilapia....
        They have an awesome salad bar and a deli station. If you want to get out of the Hospital you are close to 2 major Power centers.....Desert Ridge and Scottsdale 101 @ Mayo Blvd ...you are also very close to Kierland Commons. You do have quite a few choices...mostly chains....and a few independents.
        Zinc Bistro as mentioned above (Kierland Commons) is one of your best bets!

        A few other suggestions:
        White Chocolate Grill (Scottsdale 101 @ Mayo Blvd)
        Tea Light Cafe (Scottsdale 101 @ Mayo)
        Malee's (Desert Ridge)

            You're absolutely right. That's what happens when I respond to a thread too early in the morning before my first cup of tea. Chaiwalla -- Please disregard my first response. Ciaogal -- Thanks for clarifying.

              The pecan pie at the mayo cafeteria is divine!

                I've been to Malee's a couple times and the food is really pretty tasty. They make some spicy dishes in the true Thai style. I've never had their "Thai Hot" or "Chef's Hot" ( which, apparently, they don't advertise but will do ... ), but their "Very Hot" gets me sweating every time - and I love spicy food. I've yet to try their sushi and sashimi but I'm hoping it's just as good as their Thai.

                It's not LOS but it's pretty tasty.

              On the more inexpensive end of the scale, I heartily recommend two places:

              Sabuddy Israeli Restaurant - Some of the best Middle Eastern food in the Valley. 6949 East Shea Boulevard #10 - www.sabuddyrestaurant.com

              Redendo's Pizzeria - A great Italian joint. Nothing fancy, but the food is stellar. Two locations: 16948 East Shea Boulevard (in Fountain Hills, behind the Circle K) and 14700 North Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard #159 in Scottsdale. www.redendos.com

                  I would recommend Tutti Santi (Tatum and Greenway) for very good Italian Food.

                  We also like Shogun Japanese. We like their sushi in particular, but many people seem to like their regular Japanese foods. This isn't the absolute best restaurant in town, but we still love it, and continue to keep it in our regular rotation.

                  Shogun Restaurant
                  12615 N Tatum Blvd, Phoenix, AZ - Link to place isn't working for this place.

                    grrrr...I can get a Shogun link to show up, but no matter what I do, I can only get the Mesa Tutti Santi link...maybe I'll do some manual editing...

                    EDIT:

                    bah. I don't think the Scottsdale Tutti Santi link is going to show up. Oh well.

                        I don't know all of them, but among those I do know, it would be quite a stretch to call them "fine dining." Pita House, for example, makes a tasty falafel sandwich, but there are no white table cloths, no reservations, no wine list, and none of the other attributes typically associated with the phrase "fine dining."

                        Entertainment books provide useful discounts and help many charities with fund raising, but I wouldn't see them as guides to the best of the best. If there's something specific you're looking for in Scottsdale or any part of the Phoenix Metro Area, please post again with the particulars, and I'm sure some good recommendations will emerge.

                          Thanks for your insight. We both like Indian, Italian and Thai food. Hubby loves a good steak once in a while. I look for low-fat dishes. We will be staying in north Scottsdale at the Villa Mirage for about 10 days. We will appreciate any any suggestions!
