We are very lucky to live within about one mile from Old Town Scottsdale. We regularly take walks and check out different restaurants so we can try and convince ourselves we live in an urban environment, even though the Valley of the Sun is the lowest density major metropolitan area in the United States.
Old Town Scottsdale has over ninety restaurants to choose from, and for locals, we all have our favorites. We tend to stay away from the purely tourist-oriented restaurants and instead primarily enjoy dining experiences at locally owned restaurants with great chefs. The Mission is locally owned, has a great chef, good ambiance, and has the beginnings of becoming a local and tourist favorite. Now, go have a drink at that bar!
