Phoenix/Scottsdale for Superbowl

My husband and I are coming down from Las Vegas for the Superbowl (just found out) for four nights and would like some recommendations on where to eat. I am not at all familiar with the Phoenix/Scottsdale restaurant scene, so any help would be welcome.

We are probably looking for one top tier restaurant in terms of price, and the others can be more moderate. We like all types of cuisines, but to help narrow the selection down, if we could get suggestions for: Italian, Southwestern, Thai, Japanese, a good breakfast place, and perhaps a Steakhouse, that would be great. I know that everything is going to be packed that weekend, so any recommendations on lesser known "locals" places would be great too.

Thanks so much!

  1. Well, remember that Metro Phoenix is 500+ sq. miles and growing by the hour. That includes Scottsdale.

    For high-end spots, I would recommend, and in no particular order:
    SeaSaw (Japanese) - Scottsdale
    Cowboy Ciao (SW New American/Italian [but light on the Italian] - Scottsdale (right next door to SeaSaw, but totally different)
    Marcillenos (Italian) - Phoenix
    Vincent's on Camelback (SW French -not as odd as it might sound) - Phoenix, but very near Scottsdale
    Binkley's (New American) - very N. Scottsdale/Cave Creek
    T. Cook's (Mediterranian/New American) - Phoenix, but near Scottsdale
    Sophie's French Bistro (Semi-classic French) - Phoenix

    Check out the distances from your lodging and DO make reservations, ASAP.
