Slide 16 of 19

Scottsdale, A: Distrito at the Saguaro

Star chef Jose Garces takes Mexico City as his inspiration at this splashy outpost of his successful Philadelphia restaurant, adding a barbacoa (barbecue) menu thanks to an outdoor smoker, along with modern takes on Mexican classics like huaraches with forest mushrooms and pozole with pork belly and littleneck clams. The lively (almost kitschy) dining room is adorned with colorful Day of the Dead skulls, a marquee announcing drinks, and hot pink and purple chairs.
