Your Meal Ticket to Exotic Meats and More

Ever since we posted Posh's recipe for kangaroo steaks last week, we've been hearing requests for unusual meat entrees. Ever tried fried gator? How about elk? In this week's Meal Ticket dining newsletter, we track down some of Phoenix's more exotic restaurant (m)eats.

Valley diners may feel hard-pressed to find good New Mexican grub after the recent and unexpected demise of the popular Richardson's Cuisine of New Mexico, but we've also got the scoop on a Scottsdale alternative that you'll go "batty" for.
