My work team is holding a retreat in Scottsdale next month and we are looking for a restaurant for a team dinner. There will be 18-22 of us, near as I can figure. We would like to find a restaurant that embodies the best of what Phoenix/Scottsdale has to offer; an ambitious new chef who breaks the rules, a mixologist who thinks a cocktail can be a work of art, a fun, unpretentious atmosphere, a menu that isn't all fried food. To give you a sense of what we are looking for, in other parts of the country we have enjoyed Le Pigeon in Portland, OR, Poole's Diner in Raleigh, NC, Animal in Los Angeles, and Green Goddess in New Orleans (although, granted, some of these were with smaller groups). Cost isn't a huge issue- within reason, any ethnicity is ok as long as there are food options for the timid, and we are looking for restaurants for a Monday and/or a Tuesday. Thanks, hounds!
