I will be hanging out in Scottsdale, staying at the Mondrian, for a few days next week while my husband is on a business trip. I don't know much about the layout of Scottsdale, but I'm hoping for dinner at Los Sombreros for sure, and maybe Cowboy Ciao. We're from San Francisco and are always up for food-related adventure and experiences. A couple of questions:
1) I'll be car-less during the day - is there anywhere near the Mondrian worth checking out for daytime food/drinks?
2) For dinner, any other recommendations? We are up for anything as long as it's REALLY good food, and not too stuffy/formal of an atmosphere.
3) For drinks, anywhere other than Elements (which sounds lovely)?
4) Phoenix Ranch Market - any recommendations for stuff to buy there (we can get a lot of the same at stores in SF, but I know there must be some great stuff to look out for)
