Scottsdale may be a desert, but stellar restaurants seem to sprout up all of the time. Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Talavera is one of the city’s best dinner destinations for a host of reasons, none more obvious than the ever-evolving steakhouse menu (with dishes like the bone-in rib-eye with crab béarnaise, or the venison loin with foie gras, heirloom carrots and mole sauce) and the excellent alfresco dining in the shadows of Pinnacle Peak. Il Terrazzo also pairs brilliant cuisine (osso buco with risotto milanese, roasted carrots and gremolata, or branzino with orange marmalade, basil, fingerling potatoes, celery and red pepper) with breathtaking views. Tucked amid ultra-green Four-Star The Phoenician, this upscale Italian restaurant offers peeks to up-lit palm trees and a gorgeous resort pool.
