The Best Restaurants in Scottsdale

Scottsdale has always been influenced by the flavors of the southwestern US, but don’t expect to eat only chorizo and street corn. This city has seen an influx of fine dining and specialties to provide diners with multiple options every day of the week. Traditional dishes have been given new life, with inspiration from the flavors of Italy, Japan, and France. The people of Scottsdale have developed a taste for good food, from some of the best classic fine dining restaurants in the state and steakhouses galore to Japanese sushi and upscale Mexican. The wineries in this area are renowned, so don’t stop at the food. With several options in the area, people can swing by unique local wineries for an afternoon of tasting.
