We probably don't need to tell you about FnB, the Scottsdale kitchen helmed by culinary sage Charleen Badman. You probably already know she scours local markets for common and arcane ingredients from our state's popular and marginal family farms, about how she plates food braiding gastronomic threads from the Sonoran Desert to South America to the Levant. You might not need us to tell you how into vegetables she is, or how she still cooks in her restaurant kitchen just about every night, more than 10 years after starting in Old Town. And probably, you don't need us to vouch for FnB, because the James Beard Foundation did just that in 2019, honoring Badman with the first award to a local chef in more than a decade. Maybe, too, you don't even need us to tell you about FnB's drink program. Co-owner and beverage guru Pavle Milic curates one of the more interesting wine lists in town. It kicks with enough Arizona options to give you, in just a few visits, a crash course in the wondrous vintages of fermented grape juice our state has made — and is making. Milic even stocks up-and-coming Arizona beverage artisans, which he knows in the same way Badman knows our state's farms and ranches. Maybe, too, you don't need us to tell you that the tucked-away FnB bar might be the restaurant's best spot to drink and eat. Maybe you know about FnB's quirks and lore, its layers of greatness. But we're excited to tell you anyway. New Normal: Now with a front yard patio. Reservations are made via Tock. Dinner is also offered for takeout.
