Heading back to wonderful scottsdale again. This time I have four dinners, one solo and the rest with my DH. Was in Scottsdale last year solo for three nights: ate in hotel first night (so exhausted!) az wine co second night (didn't love it as much as I thought, but loved the company and conversation at the bar) and Los sombreros third night. Mediocre, but maybe bc they messed up my order. I had actually gone into mission that night and saddled up to the bar but was invisible as a solo guest. Literally sat for 10 mins was ignored. I should add I was dressed nice and am a fit, attractive and stylish 40ish woman.
When i was reading last year i remember hearing about Rancho Pinot but haven't read much searching posts this year so wondering how people are feeling about it. I want food I can only get in AZ, Mexican, SW, or otherwise really unbelievably delicious. No french, Asian or Italian please. Doesnt have to be fancy or expensive (although price isnt a consideration at all). Good atmosphere to relax and have fun away from my lovely little ones.
I just need a short list--all the other posts are too overwhelming. I love food but will only likely have one daytime meal out, and thats after I land I will head straight to scratch like I did last year.
Thanks for your help!
