Hello, Black Friday shoppers! Because you are undoubtedly hitting the shopping malls today in search of deals–or perhaps you’re just interested in people-watching–here are a few of our favorite shopping-center restaurants in Phoenix and Scottsdale where you can get some rest and fuel up.
If you’re shopping the latest gadgets at the Apple Store, on-trend fashions at H&M or adorable baby goods at giggle, you’re probably scheduling a stop at Scottsdale Quarter. While there, fuel up on good-f0r-you-eats at True Food Kitchen (pictured, don’t forget one of the restaurant’s feel-good natural elixirs to provide a boost of energy). Or, for a real break in your day, indulge in an taste bud-pleasing steak and a colassal shrimp appetizer at Dominick’s Steakhouse. http://www.scottsdalequarter.com/.
After you’re done perusing the goods at Kierland Commons’ Anthro, Barnes & Noble and Crate & Barrel in Scottsdale, savor some French fare at Zinc Bistro (take a seat on the patio and order a cup of French onion soup). Or head to Mastro’s Ocean Club Fish House and share a seafood tower among friends while dishing on your best on-sale finds. http://www.kierlandcommons.com/.
Take a break from lugging those Barneys New York and Neiman Marcus bags and find a seat a Modern Steak at Scottsdale Fashion Square. Go light with a chopped salad–and then treat yourself with the restaurant’s can’t-miss peanut butter cup dessert. Perhaps Black Friday makes you want to drink–we understand. Stop by Z’Tejas for one of its must-sip margaritas. Order a round for your girlfriends and share a few appetizers. http://www.fashionsquare.com/.
Getting an early start? Of course–it’s Black Friday! Start your day with a cup of joe from the ultra-hip Royal Coffee Bar at Phoenix’s Biltmore Fashion Park. For lunch, load up on carbs (got to have energy, right?) with a divine burger and fries from Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar. And we won’t tell if you sneak a milkshake. http://www.shopbiltmore.com/.
