As someone who frequently reads through the board, and dines out often, I'm fairly well versed in many of the area restaurants. However, I'm having a tough time coming up with an interesting place to try for a birthday. We've stuck with Cowboy Ciao (always fantastic) for several birthdays over the past few years, so I'm looking to stir the pot a bit. Been thinking about giving Methode, Rancho Pinot, or Tarbell's a shot (never been to any of these options). Any opinions amongst these choices? Been dying to try Kai for a while, although the drive (30-45 minutes) makes it considerably less desireable. Anyone here have any interesting standout suggestions, aside from those I proposed?
Open to all types of food, any price point, and any location in the phoenix/scottsdale area (preferably within ~20-25 minutes of Scottsdale/Cactus crossroads). Bring on the suggestions, I'm open to anything. Thanks.
