Scottsdale/Phoenix: First foodie meal post-baby
Staying at the Royal Palms right now - would like to get a baby sitter for the first time to enjoy our first post-baby foodie meal either tomorrow (1/25) or Tuesday (1/26). Restaurant criteria include: less than 4 hours door to door (baby sitting window), feels like a meal worth getting a baby sitter for, veggie friendly but some fish (not shellfish) is okay, not T. Cook's, elements or Noca (already eaten there). We visit the Scottsdale area yearly and have had an excellent meal at Binkley's last year but given the distance I'm thinking nearly 2 hours roundtrip in the car doesn't sound like the best use of baby sitting time. If it weren't for the drive I would probably just go back to Binkley's since it was so good and is the type of evening that we would be looking for (if that helps narrow down anyone's recommendation).
I have spent time looking over the boards already but am hoping that someone will take pity on my schedule with an infant and help me with some recommendations since I am trying to make plans in the next day or so.
I know that J&G at the Phoenician is very closeby - would appreciate thoughts on J&G and would appreciate other recommendations as well. Thank you in advance.
Here's an off the wall non dinner recommendation for breakfast. Over Easy at 40th street just south of Indian School is great. It's a breakfast only diner in a converted Taco Bell. We've been taking our now 2 year old grandson there since he was very little. At least on weekends there are lots of kids, lots of noise and lots of things to look at and very child friendly. Besides that, the food is excellent and probably one-third the price of breakfast at RP.
