Anyone who’s ever been to Scottsdale knows that it is one of the best culinary cities in the country. From Old World Italian to French, bistro fare, Japanese, classic American, Mexican, Thai, farm-to-table, Greek, Irish, Southwestern, and more, you’re sure to find and thoroughly enjoy it here.
Because the gastronomic offerings in Scottsdale are so vast and eclectic, you’d be hard pressed to find a number-able list of widely agreed upon local and visitor faves – they are so many that are just that good! Suffice to say that wherever you choose to engage your palate and senses, you won’t be disappointed.
For starters there’s Kasai Asian Grill, the Persian Room (with a second location in Tucson), Pure Sushi Bar & Dining, ArteZania Kitchen & Cantina, Sapiens Paleo Kitchen, Local Bistro + Bar and Soi 4 Bangkok Eatery.
Malee’s Thai Bistro, Citizen Public House, Dorian, Farm + Craft, Diego Pops, and Cien Agaves Tacos & Tequila (also with a location in North Scottsdale) are among the delicious spots located in Old Town Scottsdale.
If breakfast and brunch are your thing, your mornings just got better! Fan faves include Noci Café, Alo Café, The Hash Kitchen, Sumomaya, and Arcadia Farms Café, just to get your taste buds started in the right direction.
One couldn’t talk about all the fabulous places to eat in Scottsdale without also including the best wine, beer and spirits joints to the conversation. And boy does Scottsdale have some goodies! So let’s just cut to the chase and help you get your sippin’ on!
If you love wine, there’s no shortage of great uncorked options. A wonderful place to start is by embarking upon the Scottsdale Wine Trail. Running through Old Town Scottsdale the Trail features several Arizona wineries: Su Vino Winery, Carlson Creek Vineyards, Merkin Vineyards, LDV Winery, Salvatore Vineyards, and Aridus Wine Company.
And last but certainly not least, fantastic beers, ales (the city also has an ale trail), and spirits can be had just by saddling up to a bar stool at Craft64, the Coach House, Scapegoat Beer & Wine Bar, Kazimierz Wine & Whiskey Bar, Brat Haus, Goldwater Brewing Co., and Two Brothers Tap House.
Oh! And many of these places serve up amazing eats as well, so it’s a win-win for everyone – regardless of your “taste.”
But before you sit to dine or imbibe, delve into what makes Scottsdale “The West’s Most Western Town.”
