Il Bosco Scottsdale's best-kept secret for a cozy-casual meal, this tiny, low-lit pizzeria churns out very good wood-fired pizzas and fresh salads.
The Blind Pig Starring dishes like pig wings, a hearty steak salad, and nearly perfect al pastor tacos, this meat-intensive venue also boasts a butcher's case of take-home proteins.
Zinc Bistro At this stylish bistro, lunchtime bites come in the form of upscale Parisian comfort food like onion soup gratinée, croque monsieur with French ham, and coq au vin.
Rehab Burger Therapy The best thing about this fun, beach-themed restaurant (from three former Oregano's execs) is that its satisfying burgers come in two sizes.
Brat Haüs At this lively gastropub, pairing your lunch of housemade sausages, German specialties, or house-pickled fare with one of about 70 kinds of beer pretty much goes without saying.
