Badman's killer crème brûlée is not to be missed; mine was kissed with thyme and Meyer lemon, with a crunchy, amber sugar coating. Other sweets varied by the night — tender pecans and flaky pastry drizzled with bourbon caramel sauce, and fallen chocolate soufflé, layered with chocolate mousse, were memorable.

Throughout the evening, you can observe Milic as multi-tasker extraordinaire — answering calls, greeting guests and taking orders, bussing tables, keeping the wine flowing — and it's a delight to see someone so clearly in his element. I wish more restaurateurs would show this kind of genuine enthusiasm (mixed with charm and self-deprecating humor) for food and beverage.

Crispy rock shrimp with jalapeño tartar sauce (right) and farm-fresh fennel salad are only two of the reasons why three-month-old FnB is an instant classic in Old Town Scottsdale.

Nice review Michele! I just think Charleen's ability to juxtapose questionable food combinations into complimentary, craveable treats is nothing short of incredible.

Be still my heart! If I weren't already crazy about this place, your review would have me outside the door at 4:55 tomorrow afternoon, salivating for Charleen's cooking. My sister took a friend last week, a woman who lunches & dines out so often you'd think she was a food writer. She said (of Pavle): "He sure is fussing over us & giving us special attention." Replied my sis (with a smile): "Yes, and that's how he treats everyone."

This review echo's our wonderful experience at FnB. From the moment we stepped inside to the time we left, the service and cozy atmosphere remind me today that it's time to venture back. My wife and I sampled many dishes; however, for me the chicken was just delightful. ..and ohhhh, that crispy skin.

Cheers
