The Rebl Rentals team understands when hunger strikes, deciding where to go can become a major problem. We have compiled a list of some of our favorite restaurants. Instead of asking “Where should we go?”, these Phoenix and Scottsdale restaurants will have you asking “When do we go again?”
The Montauk in Old Town Scottsdale was rated the Thrillist’s Best New Restaurant in 2016. They serve classics with a twist like deviled eggs with bacon, arugula, truffle oil, and potato sticks, mac n’ cheese with lobster or chicken, and short rib tacos. With a buzzing brunch scene, live music, and late night DJs, The Montauk is an ideal spot for any occasion.
As for Phoenix, Binkley’s Restaurant was rated Best New Restaurant by the Phoenix New Times in 2017. Binkley’s is all about decadence so if you’re willing to splurge, this is the place to be. You’ll be served a 22-course meal, where you’ll move from a patio near Amy Binkley’s own garden to the indoor bar, and finally to a beautiful dining room. At $165 a person, Binkley’s is not for those on a budget, but if you are celebrating a special occasion, or in the mood to treat yourself, this 3-hour culinary experience will be a highlight of your trip.
For exceptional taste and first-rate service, travel to Scottsdale’s Café Monarch. Savor a four-course dinner with selections ranging from seared Main Diver Scallops with sweet corn and basmati rice to Niman Ranch ribeye garnished with caramelized cipollini onions and spiced hollandaise.
In Phoenix, visit Caffe Boa. Opened in 1994, Caffe Boa only uses locally grown and organic ingredients in their dishes. Search its Italian-style menu and you’ll uncover main courses like their Pollo Al Rosmarino – an oven roasted half-chicken with white wine, garlic, capers, lemons and Yukon roasted rosemary gold potatoes, and Voodoo Penne – house make pasta served with blackened chicken break, bell peppers, tomatoes, red onions and Cajun cream sauce. They also serve brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, and have live Jazz on Monday nights.
For those looking for something a little less fancy, the burger joints in Phoenix and Scottsdale satisfy without breaking the bank. Rehab Burger Therapy will give you a heart attack when you see its selections. Don’t worry, one bite will bring you back to life. PB + J Bacon Burgers, Turkey Burgers, Philly Cheeseburgers, and even a Ghost Burger layered with ghost pepper jack cheese fill out its diverse menu.
Meanwhile, Phoenix-goers should sit at The Stand, a burger joint located in Arcadia. Grab a standard burger and an order of fresh cut fries, then wash that down with a handmade milkshake and you’ll be giving this place a standing ovation. A Scottsdale location opened its doors in 2017.
