I will be traveling back to Arizona next week after being away for many years. I grew up in Scottsdale/Mesa area, but everything has changed dramatically. We will be in Tempe, Tucson and then Phoenix for about 3-4 nights each. Would love restaurant suggestions in each place for b/l/d. We're traveling with a teenager who enjoys good food plus we are coming from New York, so are used to interesting, adventurous dining. Would like to know of great dinner places, but also local finds that are not too costly since we will be eating out a lot of meals. Same for breakfast and lunch: would prefer good places where the locals go.
We will have a car.
I'm looking forward to some warm weather. Is anything still in bloom (cactus wise) or too late? Thanks!
