Flower-ChildWith locations in Santa Monica, Scottsdale and a second Phoenix one coming soon at 100 East Camelback, Flower Child is a “healthy food for a happy world” fast-casual concept that prides itself on freshness and on buying from ranchers who “love their animals.” An order-at-counter setup, it was named by Nation’s Restaurant News as one of the top restaurant debuts of 2014.

Steak44The high-end ambiance-filled steakhouse owned by Dennis, Michael and Jeff Mastro and Scott Troilo has wowed Valley diners since its 2014 opening with its seafood and hand-cut steaks. So much so that it inspired them to open another one in the Houston area.

SumoMayaOwned and operated by German Osio (also: Central Bistro, Local Bistro and Kale & Clover), the fusion-food menu focuses on flavors from Latin America and the Far East. The food is supplied by Arizona farmers to ensure freshness. The heritage-blending spot opened in 2014 to the delight of fans of tapas-style dining.

6560 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale


Tacht-ClubSeafood in the desert with a nautical concept is Chef Aaron May’s latest concoction (he also opened breakfast spot Over Easy). If you crave East Coast seafood like clam chowder then you’ll feel at home at this Arcadia spot that opened earlier this year.
