Phoenix Fine Dining card

We are visiting my parents in Scottsdale later this month. They have a card that gives a discount at the restaurants listed in the link below, and they were going to give us money to cover the difference. What are your favorites on this list? I was thinking Roka Akor or Bamboo Club, but there is a huge difference between good and trendy-bad pan-Asian and have no idea where these two stand. We'd like one more choice too, though not a classic steakhouse, since that's what we are cooking on New Year's Eve.

We prefer to stay in Scottsdale though will go to Phoenix for something very delicious.

  1. Out of that list, I like the food best at Deseo. Their ceviches and mojitos are excellent, IMO. I don't eat out that much at Asian places, so I don't have any opinion about the two spots you mentioned. Other contenders for me from that list would be Prado, Talavera and T. Cooks.

    10600 E. Crescent Moon Drive, Scottsdale, AZ 85262

    4949 E Lincoln Dr, Paradise Valley, AZ 85253

    6902 E. Greenway Parkway, Scottsdale, AZ 85254

    1. re: mwest9

      We like smaller plates, and I love ceviche, so Deseo it is. Thanks, guys!

    2. Two more, that are on MY list are Lon's and T. Cook's. With those, plus Deseo, that would make three good meals. Also, each is quite different, so you will NOT feel like you are doing the same restaurant more than once.

      Enjoy, and travel safely,
