Private Dining Room at North Scottsdale Restaurant?
I'm planning a client dinner for about 12 people and would appreciate any tips or recommendations for a nice restaurant with a private dining room. The client is around Shea and the 101, so anything in that general area or a 15 minute drive would be good. Thanks!!
Both Lon's and Sassi could work, though you might be looking at 20-25 minutes of driving, instead of 15.
Lon's At the Hermosa
5532 N Palo Cristi Rd, Paradise Valley, AZ 85253
10455 E Pinnacle Peak Pkwy, Scottsdale, AZ 85255
I have tried to put together two separate dinner functions in this area and it ain't easy. In any case you are going to be in for a drive. I ended doing one at Mosaic, now sadly closed and the other at Lon's. Both were outstanding and Lon's has a great atmosphere. You are going to find, as I did, that very few restaurants have private rooms. In addition to the two places mentioned, you might also try Fleming's (DC Ranch and Scottsdale Road - not sure which is closer) and Roy's, also on Scottsdale Road. The Royal Palms has several nice rooms. Good luck and if you find other restaurants with private rooms in this area please let us know.
Again, closer to 20 minutes than 15, but the private chef's table at Elements (of which Rubee spoke rather highly earlier today) is scheduled to open in early March and has a view of the kitchen.
Not a "Chowhound" type place by any means, but I think Carrabba's at Scottsdale and Frank Lloyd Wright has a private room. There are a few other chain-type places at Kierland that you could check with.
