On a strip of Scottsdale Road already crowded with popular eateries comes a new contender. Opened in late 2016, chef Matt Carter's Fat Ox is a sleek space with conservatory-style black steel windows, a marble and brass bar, leather banquettes, and a touch of Art Deco dazzle. Described as modern Italian, the menu incorporates multiple regions and lands between rustic and refined with tableside Caesar salads, adventurous house made pastas, salumi, and hearty entrees including a 28 oz. Porterhouse and Duroc Pork Tomahawk. Still hungry? Try the gelato in your choice of three flavors: amaretto, pistachio and black olive.
