ARE YOU GETTING HUNGRY? WHERE DO YOU GO? WHAT DO YOU WANT? WHAT IS AROUND HERE?
The Platinum Experience team understands when heading out for something to eat, it can often become a major problem. By utilizing our concierge services when planning your vacation, and we’ll make sure you have a list of our favorite spots, including the restaurants listed below! These Phoenix and Scottsdale restaurants solve that problem with ease. American, Italian, and fusion eateries are found throughout both cities that will make your mouth water. Instead of asking Where should we go?, you’ll be asking, When do we go again?
New Places Open
New to the area? So are these restaurants! The Montauk in Old Town Scottsdale was rated the Thrillist’s Best New Restaurant in 2016. They serve classics like Fish and Chips and Mac N’ Cheese, but those that are a little more daring should try the Honey Jalapeño Chicken Sandwich. As for Phoenix, Binkley’s Restaurant was rated Best New Restaurant by the Phoenix New Times last year. Binkley’s is all about decadence so if you’re willing to splurge, this is the place to be. You’ll be served a 22-course meal, where you’ll move from a patio near Amy Binkley’s own garden to the indoor bar, and finally to a beautiful dining room. At $165 a person, Binkley’s is not for those on a budget, but treat yourself to a 3 1/2 hour meal of fish, cocktails, dessert and everything in between.
Fine Dining Establishments
For exceptional taste and first-rate service, travel to Scottsdale’s Café Monarch. Savor a four-course dinner with selections ranging from Seared Main Diver Scallops with sweet corn and basmati rice to Niman Ranch Ribeye garnished with caramelized cipollini onions and spiced hollandaise. In Phoenix, visit Caffe Boa. Opened in 1994, Caffe Boa only uses locally grown and organic ingredients in their dishes. Search its Italian-style menu and you’ll uncover lush salads like Rucola filled with arugula and sprinkled with fresh cracked pepper as well as their main courses like their Pollo Al Rosmarino, a rosemary-flavored half-chicken seared and served with yukon potatoes.
Burgers and Better Burgers
Those looking for something a little less fancy, the burger joints in Phoenix and Scottsdale satisfy without breaking the bank. Rehab Burger Therapy will give you a heart attack when you see its selections. Don’t worry, it will also bring you back to life with its taste. PB + J Bacon Burgers, Turkey Burgers, Philly Cheeseburgers, and even a Ghost Burger layered with ghost pepper jack cheese fill out its diverse menu.
Meanwhile, Phoenix-goers should sit at The Stand, a burger joint located in Arcadia. Grab a standard burger and an order of fresh-cut fries, then wash that down with a handmade milkshake and you’ll be giving this place a standing ovation. A Scottsdale location opened its doors in 2017.
