A few weeks again I visited The Crow Bar and Kitchen in Corona Del Mar while in Orange County on business. It was one of those newish "gastropubs", a pub type, low-key atmosphere but with very, very good food. For example, they had some excellent flatbreads on the menu, duck fat fries, very good onion rings along with a great selection of beers on tap. I think this type of restaurant would be great in Scottsdale. Are there any gastropubs in Phx?
Here is a chowhound review for the Crow Bar:
