Scottsdale - good food/wine, but no Italian or Indian
Headed to Phoenix in March for golf, staying in Scottsdale. Would love some suggestions for good food and wine, not Italian or Indian. Moderate priced or upscale. Interested in dinner vs. breakfast or lunch.
This is the most frequently asked question on this board (minus the aversion to Italian or Indian), so I think fatigue from the same question again and again will make original responses unlikely. You could do some searching or exploration of these archives. Alternatively, you could try these recent articles from national media. The recommendations are pretty good, but ignore the muddled geography in the Boston Globe article. Many of the restaurants described are in Scottsdale and not particularly close to the Black Canyon Freeway (aka I-17), which runs along the west side of Phoenix.
Yes, I agree. You need to just do a few searches. This request is too broad and is the every third inquiry on this board. That said, I'd eat a chimichanga at el Molino, the Grapevine and the Salt cellar for HH.
The folks below are right but in the spirit of quick help:
Citizen Public House
The House Brasserie
Roka Akor (HH Lounge)
Please note: I am not including some killer spots in Phoenix - downtown or otherwise.
Anything from the Fox restaurant group, you cannot go wrong. Cornish Pastie in old town is good altho it might be a chain. Its still good. My recent new favorite is the sister restaurant of binkleys called binks restaurant 480 in hilton village. Tarbells and donovans are also outstanding.
