attire at Roaring Fork (Scottsdale, AZ)
I am joining several friends tonight for our 1st time at the Roaring Fork. We are not sure what the attire is?? Someone read to wear business casual but we're wondering if this could mean dress jeans or dress shorts?? If anyone has any input it would be greatly appreciated. Also if you have a favorite dish to recommend?
"business casual" is pretty much what the standard dress for every higher-end place in town is. It's pretty non-specific, but I think it can range from slacks, dress shirt, nice shoes, to what I'd say is more "resort casual"--nice pair of jeans (or even shorts), and a nice shirt (button-down, polo, whatever). The latter obviously isn't "business casual," but I think it's perfectly acceptable. Shorts might be pushing it, but I think it's completely understandable when it's 110 out, and no one is going to turn you away as a result. I think just looking *nice* is the key. (my reply is pointed more toward male dress, sorry if this was a wrong assumption).
In terms of favorite menu items, I honestly haven't been wild about the place since Robert McGrath left, and have only been back a couple of times since (nothing wrong with it per se, but it's definitely not the same). As a result, the menu is a bit different from what I remember, but a few of my past favorites were the short rib with dr. pepper bbq sauce, chile mac & cheese, tortilla soup. Looks like they still have these or some variation of these on the menu, so likely pretty similar. Someone else who has been more recently can hopefully advise you better...
