1. The Mission
Located in Scottsdale, The Mission delights its guests with Modern Latin cuisine courtesy of the head chef, Matt Carter (an Arizona Foothills Magazine Top Chef honoree). Food is prepared on a traditional plancha-style grill which infuses the food with flavors of mesquite and pecan. Carter borrows cooking styles and recipes from a variety of Latin countries and combines them to create familiar favorites with a new twist. The restaurant also offers an impressive tequila bar, serving specialty hand-pressed cocktails and margaritas.
