This is not one of Arizona's traditional Mexican food restaurants. The Mission has complex Latin food with a French influence. Some dishes have zing, which is perfect for me. I love the variety of chilies that Chef Matt Carter works into his inventive dishes. Matt Carter was the chef at Zinc Bistro, another great location in Scottsdale.
We had the table side guacamole as I am a guacamole connoisseur. I deem it excellent in both presentation and taste and and I am very picky. Great tortilla chips also. The grilled meats were very flavorful and melted in our mouths. My Mom had the Uruguayan rib eye with chimichurri sauce and a side of green chilaquiles, which consists of layered tortillas, eggs, pulled pork and red chili sauce. I had the Chorizo Pachetta with a side of white bean puree that just rocked! Both items were superb and unique.
Tourists and locals will love the food and atmosphere. There is an outdoor fireplace that you can sit and enjoy the Mission margaritas with salt (highly recommended!). Because I am a foodie and always eat out, I hope to introduce or highlight many of our local restaurants to both tourists and locals.
