Old Town Scottsdale
When it comes to the best selection of upscale and award-winning dining destinations, there's no contest. Old Town Scottsdale is where it's at. This is the part of town where the best chefs tend to set up shop including Charleen Badman of FnB, Gio Osso of Virtu Honest Craft, Bernie Kantak of Citizen Public House, Matt Carter of The Mission and The House, Silvana Esparza Salcido of Barrio Queen...we could on but you get the idea. Sure, it's not the most accessible dining scene in town but there are also some low-key spots. For a light lunch we like options such as Original ChopShop Co. or Cornish Pastry, which offers hearty fare and a cozy vibe. Wine and beer-focused spots are also plentiful in this neighborhood, making it a great place for nightlife as well.
