At this sleek spot at the Scottsdale Waterfront, owned by executive chef John M. Carver and the same seafood pros who own Eddie V's Edgewater Grille. Seafood doesn't come cheap, but for freshness and preparation, it's absolutely worth it. A lot of the dishes have a creative Asian spin, such as crispy cashew calamari, or salt and pepper Gulf shrimp with chile, ginger, scallions, and a soy-flavored dipping sauce. Aside from the entrees, everything on the menu is big enough for at least two people to share. Try the hot goat cheese and wild mushroom salad, crispy onion ring slivers with luscious blue cheese fondue, or the world-class, all-lump crab cake, an appetizer with way more emphasis on crab than cake.
