Restaurants in Scottsdale

Families that visit Scottsdale should make sure to take a trip down 5th Avenue and Goldwater for the Food Truck Caravan event on Saturday evenings. At least fifteen gourmet food trucks line up along the promenade, featuring dishes from all over the world. Spending at least eight dollars at any truck will get you a discount card to over twenty-five merchants in the Scottsdale area. This offers an excellent opportunity to get a feel for the city and take a break from the typical sit-down restaurants in Scottsdale.

For an upscale splurge, try Sassi, (adjacent to the Four Seasons at Troon) which resembles a sprawling villa and offers delicious Italian cuisine with uninterrupted views of the 600-foot Pinnacle Peak. Zinc Bistro is another lip-smacking choice with Parisian-inspired fare and an oyster bar.

Looking for a rollicking good time? Hit Dos Gringos, which claims to sell more Corona beers than any other bar in America—let that speak for itself. This Mexican joint spits out burritos and margaritas just as quickly as the cervezas.
