Barrio Queen Tequileria
Just last week, culinary queen Martha Stewart (who tweeted that she was in town for a meeting with PetSmart) stopped in to eat at Chef Silvana Salcido Esparza's Barrio Queen in Scottsdale, proving that all it takes to dine with the stars is good taste in restaurants. Esparza says she served Stewart a few carne asada and chorizo and bleu cheese tacos -- as well as the restaurant's not-tobe-missed tableside guacamole. During Stewart's first visit to the Queen (Esparza says Stewart visits the Cafe about once a year), the two chefs also tasted four of the restaurant's more than 300 tequilas and talked tequila with the restaurant's resident expert, Jared Putterman. She also ate at Pizzeria Bianco, where she tweeted pics of two pizzas, a glass of wine, and a tomato and mozzarella salad.
