Scottsdale, AZ Dinner Options

Will be in Scottsdale later this week for business and looking for high quality food in a casual setting for dinner with coworkers. Any cuisine is fine -- especially good regional food -- and not concerned about cost. I will be staying at the Holiday Inn Express at 3131 N. Scottsdale Road and would prefer places we can walk to, but a short car ride is ok too. Also, prefer places where the people who live in Scottsdale would go to.

Thanks in advance for your recs.

  1. As long as you are ok with a 5-6 block (large blocks) walk, you can walk to many great places in Old Town Scottsdale. Or, all are a close drive or short cab ride (walk there, cab back, etc.)

    To start, here is a list of places within approx a 5-mile radius of your hotel that I can recommend...
    Sea Saw
    Los Sombreros
    House of Tricks
    Cowboy Ciao
    Stax Burger Bistro
    Estate House
    Fine's Cellar
    Noodles Ranch (very casual)
    Asia de Cuba at the Mondrian
    Olive & Ivy
    Atlas Bistro
    Cafe ZuZu or Trader Vic's at the Valley Ho

    I'm sure others will have some additional ideas, but this is a good list to start your research and narrow down from there.
