Recs for Scottsdale and Sedona?

Hi all,

My husband and I are taking a trip to Scottsdale in the next couple of weeks, and I was hoping to get some Chowhound-quality recommendations for places to eat. My family used to go every year, so I'm somewhat familiar with the city, though I'm sure it's changed/sprawled dramatically since last I was there. (1999! Holy crap, that's a long time.) I'll be staying nearish Frank Lloyd Wright and Thompson Peak Pkwy, but will have access to a car, and don't mind a little driving. We'll also do a day trip to Sedona and will need to grab at least something for lunch there, if not dinner as well.

I'm not looking for anything extravagant -- as a matter of fact, I'd prefer to avoid the extravagant. Did that plenty in years past. We'll be visiting my mom, who, bless her, is not super adventurous on her own and won't have any suggestions, but she goes along with anything we want to try (she'll go to P.F. Chang over and over again, but has also been known to eat sheep's brain and eyes, go figure). We really like good, fresh Mexican (no cheese-laden Tex-Mex), Middle Eastern, Indian, Chinese (particularly Szechuan or dim sum), Vietnamese, Peruvian, and Neapolitan pizza. But really, we're open to about anything.

Thanks in advance!
