During my recent trip to Scottsdale, I was excited to see that it has its own foodie scene going on, and there are several can’t-miss restaurants.
We definitely ate well while we were in Scottsdale, and there were several other restaurants that we didn’t make it to during our long weekend, but that I’m looking forward to trying in the future.
