4000 N. Drinkwater Blvd. (The Saguaro) , Scottsdale, 85251
There's no sign of combo plates or gratis chips and salsa in Iron Chef Jose Garces' brand of modern Mexican cuisine. The snack- and small-plates-focused menu includes purist guacamole deep-fried crab claws and a beefy gordita that's like a sloppy Joe wearing a sombrero. It's fun to share everything from explosively seasoned ceviches to grilled octopus and rich glazed pork belly. Save room for the phenomenal desserts. Breakfast lunch and dinner daily.
