The chefs at Pellini Italian Eatery unwittingly draw inspiration from the diets of ancient Roman warriors, which consisted of crispy flatbreads, grain-based entrees, and fine wine. Following in the tradition of this culinary history, the chefs assemble their signature Pellini wraps, combining piadina flatbread, angel-hair pasta, and succulent morsels of meat or seafood to create a single, handheld feast that can pair with glasses of imported Italian wine. Like native Italians, the chefs favor local and natural ingredients, such as grilled chicken breast, plump bruschetta tomatoes, and flavorful pepperoncini peppers. They prepare their sauces fresh each morning, from the creamy vodka sauce to the bold red-pepper pesto. The chefs even extend their culinary expertise to a variety of kid-pleasing dishes, including cheesy macaroni and flatbreads stuffed with math-test answer keys.
Stepping into The Sweet Tooth Fairy shop is like walking into another era: round tables and high-backed chairs surround an old-fashioned soda fountain, and oldies music plays softly nearby. Pale-blue walls and white crown moulding stand behind a glass case full of sweet treats, which are baked daily and earned proprietor Megan Faulkner Brown two appearances on The Rachael Ray Show—one when she was still baking in her basement kitchen, and the next three years later, when her business had grown to nine locations. Megan uses the "most ordinary" ingredients to whip up her extraordinary pastries, which include chocolate-chip and iced oatmeal cookies, brownies, lemon bars, and a variety of cupcakes and full-grown cakes. Signature cakebites don coats of chocolate or white chocolate flecked with sprinkles. Flavors of baked goods rotate monthly, with some favorites available on a daily basis. Gluten-free options are available, as are frosting shots designed to save time usually spent licking every drop of frosting off the top of a full-size cake.
TK's Urban Tavern carefully constructs a menu of timeless pub staples using local farm ingredients, regional elements, and a modern flair. The open-show kitchen forges meals in full view of eager diners, putting on display such succulent entrees as the oven-roasted chicken, paired with polenta and dressed in an anchochili glaze ($15). Traditional tavern selections include a range of thin-crust pizzas ($10–$12), groups of medieval travelers, and innovative sandwiches such as the BLT ($9), which casts off its stodgy acronym by nestling wild arugula and a wayward fried egg in with applewood bacon and tomato on toasted nine-grain bread. Youthful appetites delight in a range of nutritious kid's entrees ($6), and grownups can complement menu choices with an extensive drink list populated by draft and bottled beers ($3–7.50), wines by the glass ($7–$12), and specialty cocktails ($8–$12). Located in the bustling Scottsdale Quarter, the tavern's savory selections make ideal openers or afterglows to shopping, movie outings, or long days as a human statue.

In an airy dining area overlooking the tarmac at Scottsdale Airport, diners grab meals to fill up for impending flights or footraces against private jets. This is Zulu Caffe, a place where a jet-setting clientele traveling to destinations around the world pauses to sample the area's local and organic cuisine. Executive chef Brian Ford, a graduate of The French Culinary Institute in New York, curates the eatery's menu of seasonally rotating dishes, which includes smoked-salmon quesadillas, locally sourced Angus burgers, and wood-fired pizzas.
There's only one price for the fresh-brewed coffee at Chloe's Corner: $0.50. This doesn't change whether it's a hot cup paired with a breakfast sandwich or an iced glass washing down a hot roast beef sandwich at lunch. This fits into the shop's old-school diner mentality of focusing on making classic American favorites that are simple and delicious.
The house chefs specialize in the three S's of diners: sandwiches, salads, and shakes. They create favorites such as BLTs and chop salads, complemented by creamy hand-dipped milkshakes. For stronger drinks, though, guests can head next door to the attached retail selection. There, they can find a wide variety of beer and wine to-go. The retail shop isn't just for beverage indulgences, however. Guests can also pick up vintage candy that brings back fond memories of childhood without calling your imaginary friend Nessa, who ended up moving to Spain to become a flamenco dancer.
