One night in Scottsdale with Child, where to go

One night in Scottsdale with child

I am travelling to Scottsdale for two nights staying at the Phoenician. If you only had one night to dine where would you go?

Naturally I am bringing my daughter 21/2 and she can be pretty good in restaurants but she is only 2.

Thanks leaving Friday.

  1. I'd go to Pita Jungle, a Mediterranean restaurant just two miles or so southwest of the Phoenician. My wife and I go there with our young child, and we're never the only family there.

    For meatier, more straightforward fare, you might also consider Delux, a somewhat upscale burger place that is nearby. Like Pita Jungle, it's somewhat loud and very casual, so a child's occasional fussing won't really be heard over the background noise.

      Our 3 year old goes pretty much everywhere except Sea Saw & Binkley's. LGO (La Grande Orange) is pretty close to you and we LOVE the pizzas (especially the vegetarian ones - though I'm a total carnivore). They have a bunch of tables along the wall & a couple booths that seem to work well with the little one. Then there is Arlecchino's right connected and you can bribe them to be good with the best gelato in town (IMO not even close though there are different camps out there).

    2. I have two little ones. I would definitely go to La Grande Orange for pizza and Arlecchino for gelato (get the pistachio!!!).

      LGO always has cute little stuff for the kids in the market area - puzzles, games, goodies,

      2. Thanks so much! We ended up eating at the Roaring Fork which was great. It was loud enough and the food was fast enough that she didnt complain to much. We only had to take a few walks. They even had a childrens menu. The portions were quite large so we probably could have shared.
