From fast-and-healthy to modern French, late-night dining to restaurant-by-day/nightclub-after-dark, take note of these seven new Scottsdale restaurants.
Order your favorite classic-song-titled burger at this rock ’n’ roll bar outfitted with sprocket lights, bike-chain chandeliers and wooden accents. The District lunch-and-dinner joint overlooks the pool at Maya Day + Nightclub, and blends into Scottsdale’s nightlife scene with vibrant LED lighting décor and local DJs spinning rock ’n’ roll mash-ups.
Sit in a wicker love seat on the airy beachhouse-style patio overlooking Scottsdale Road. The menu at The Montauk meshes comfort food and East Coast classics for refreshing choices such as coconut-lemongrass ceviche and smoked-salmon deviled eggs.
Kale & Clover: Mindful Kitchen
Kale & Clover serves three meals a day in North Scottsdale to patrons looking for a healthy bite. Most menu items here are vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free, and glasses are filled with cold-pressed juices, smoothies, nut milks, coffees, craft beers and wines.
Twisted Grove Parlor & Bar
This industrial, indoor-outdoor space features a wall of old-school bicycle blueprints as well as other colorful artworks surrounding oversized booths, communal tables and a patio fireplace. Approachable modern-American cuisine is served at Twisted Grove including stone-oven flatbreads and build-your-own bruschetta.
From the mastermind that brought us wine-centric Cowboy Ciao and Kazimierz World Wine Bar, Peter Kasperski’s newest opening strays from the norm. Open 10 pm-2 am on Fridays and Saturdays only, Counter Intuitive has no website or social media pages and focuses on mixing innovative cocktails created by two well-known Valley mixologists—Micah Olson of Crudo and Jason Asher of Jade Bar at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa. The food and beverage menu and décor will change themes throughout the year.
Bistro du Lac
Visit France, lakeside in Scottsdale’s McCormick Ranch, at Bistro du Lac. French-born, longtime friends run the bistro, serving delicately plated French comfort foods with occasional modern twists to diners seated on two expansive patios or inside the red-themed dining room.
Get your caffeine fix at the in-house coffee bar, Comoncy, and then dine on locally sourced and organic menu staples at California-bistro-inspired Dakota. The 4,500-square-foot space transforms into a nightclub with bottle service on weekends.
