tempts us with many reasons to be out and about, whether you’re a night owl or a day-tripper. It starts with the weather, of course — almost always clear and sunny this time of year, with temperate days and only slightly cooler nights. Opportunities spill beyond the confines of any single section of the Valley, which is why we’ve combined our popular localized You Are Here guides into one Valley-wide edition — but with the same devotion to exposing those hidden gems that bring out the urban stroller in all of us. The concentration of night spots is renowned, with grooves to fit every age range and, in some areas, clustered close enough together that you can walk to sample a variety of signature concoctions. Dine in that well-known hole in the wall or at the world’s most exclusive resorts. Shop in like you’re in Venice, California, or Venice, Italy. The Valley of the Sun is your mecca. We take on a whole new dynamic this time of year because we are no longer cooped up indoors. The weather is perfect for those nightly strolls, patio dining and taking advantage of sports, recreation and activities of all kinds. The Valley has four urban centers, Downtown Phoenix, Scottsdale Downtown, Historic Glendale and Tempe’s Mill Avenue. Sure, there are quaint surrounding areas like Old Town Gilbert, City North and even retail zones surrounding all of the Valley’s shopping malls. It is a unique place smack dab in the middle of the desert. Recreate on the many trails through our parks and preserves. Bike and pedestrian paths meander through pleasantly landscaped miles that give views of our manmade waterway and vital water source, Surprise the Central Arizona Project canal. Or challenge yourself on more rugged trail-biking and hiking terrain. Scottsdale Glendale And of course golf. World-class golf 17 51 101 101 courses are part of the fabric of our Paradise Valley Central Valley, which boasts an abundance of Phoenix 202 10 public as well as private courses. Pull away from the urban scene and relax over Tempe 10 Mesa 18 holes on some of the world’s finest 60 golf courses. Play like a pro or just simply enjoy the scenery as you experience some Chandler of the best we have to offer.

Immersion Therapy Scottsdale Fashion Square

Chic and Skimpy

You’d have thought they were giving away free money for the mobs H&M attracted when it opened its flagship store this summer at Scottsdale Fashion Square.

They say walking cures

everything but a broken leg. That puts it a close second to shopping. Put the two together for some memorable excursions in diverse settings. Catch some rays while you walk along the shops at the upscale Scottsdale Waterfront, from which extended shopping opportunities are in reach across the pedestrian bridge over the canal to Scottsdale’s celebrated Fifth Avenue and neighboring historic shopping districts. Further north, the smalltown ambience of Kierland Commons and New York vibe of Scottsdale Quarter invite your shopping perambulations along their luxury-store-lined sidewalks. Promenade out West along Westgate City Center’s independent specialty shops and clothing stores amidst bright billboards, palm trees and endless entertainment. For the height of glamour, take a stroll through Biltmore Fashion Park in Phoenix, home to Saks 5th Avenue, Hyde Park Jewelers and the Apple Store. Or stray off the beaten path into Mesa for affordable clothing and gear for moms and kids at the quaint boutique Butterflies & Bullfrogs. There’s no need to overdo the walking part of these excursions, as many destinations offer valet parking. ALESSI 2502 E. Camelback Rd., Scottsdale & 602-840-2441 alessi.com

QUICK TIPS

Soak up the ambience of the Valley’s diverse shopping meccas


Running on Full When Nike opened its store at Scottsdale Quarter in mid-October, it went to new heights to bring shoe and related athletic wear to the sports-minded Scottsdalean. Nearly 20,000 square feet, it occupies a two-story building in the middle of the shopping center’s New York streetscape. Watch for athletes to make random appearances, special Michael Jordan shoe releases and sponsored charity events – “quick strike” events without a lot of hoopla.

QUICK TIPS


Suns Fever If you are looking for a night filled with sport, excitement, food and drink, look no further than a hometown Phoenix Suns basketball game. Great for going out with a couple of buds from work or taking the kids to a game, Suns games are fun for everyone — seeing Nash fly down the court to a 3-pointer, drinking beer or cheering on the Big Orange. Avoid traffic and the crowd — Light Rail can drop you at 3rd Street and Jefferson.

You Are Here Winter 2011

The Valley suits golf enthusiasts to a “T” — so tee off from the tee box of your choice. World famous for its golf courses, the area is studded with swards of emerald, all the more striking for their contrast to the surrounding rugged Sonoran Desert. Golfers whose admiration for scenic landscapes equals their love of the game will enjoy Alta Mesa Country Club’s lakes and fountains amidst the sprawling greens of the Mesa suburbs. For a sweet escape from city life, look no further than the relaxing, beautiful and affordable Encanto 18 Hole Golf Course in central Phoenix. The Marriott’s glamorous Camelback Inn in Scottsdale offers a golf course with an aesthetic focus and another with an emphasis on sharpening your game.  ARIZONA BILTMORE GOLF CLUB

Ready to take

on the culinary variations that is the Valley of the Sun? Whether you’re up for noshing organic delicacies al fresco or sinking your teeth into an old-school slab of prime beef in the dark confines of a clubby dining room, the Valley has a restaurant for you. Consider starting off in Scottsdale, where you can grab a fruit smoothie at Buzzberry — to tide you over for laternight dining excess at Mastro’s Steakhouse, where the meat all but melts in the mouth. Or head to Tempe for hearty Irish pub fare at Rúla Búla and some of the best pasta and pizzas around at Oregano’s Pizza Bistro. For Eastern-infused eats, Chandler offers acclaimed Vietnamese creations at Cyclo and a Chinese foodie’s nirvana at C-Fu Gourmet. Mesa is home to The Landmark Restaurant, with a room devoted to salad, as well as the Islamorada Fish Company, likely the only local eatery with buffalo burgers, venison-stuffed mushrooms and alligator on the menu. Central Phoenix standouts include Durant’s, St. Francis and the urban eatery Hanny’s. And, over on the west side, don’t miss Pedro’s in Glendale for authentic Mexican dishes or The Grill at the Wigwam Resort in Litchfield Park for American classics.

QUICK TIPS


Pick of the Day Irrepressible Michael DeMaria is showman as well as chef, and remains passionate about being true to the local scene. Heirloom’s American menu reflects some of America’s classics with a fresh-from-the-garden ardor. Changing with the growing seasons of our Southwest, it relies heavily on locally grown produce – often picked earlier in the same day it appears on your plate. The wine list favors American labels, while not ignoring great classics of the world.

Urban Farm Fast Food Many restaurants are born out of the passions of farmers, but this family farm in Gilbert raised Joe’s Farm Grill. This organic working 12-acre urban farm surrounds the ultra modern burger joint – yes, burger joint. “Common food, one uncommonly” is the order of the day. Eat in or dine out, it is fast food at it’s best. Order the famous fries to accompany the Farm Burger (with or without grilled onions). Hot dogs, fresh farm salads, shakes and unique sodas of the ‘soda jerk’ of the 50’s.

The best-filled buns in Metro Phoenix Lush Burger

Stax Burger Bistro

Like having a say about what goes on your burger? You’ll adore Indulge Burgers & More, where you can build your own. Choose a protein — including veggie, kobe beef, turkey and chicken — and then select cheese, toppings and a bun. Other menu options include signature burgers, salads, sandwiches and gluten-free items.

Additive-free, all-natural Harris Ranch beef and local-when-possible veggies are just some of the goodies in the meals at Lush Burger, a chichi-looking, yet family-friendly, dining spot at DC Ranch Crossing. Full size patties and sliders are available, as are turkey, ahi tuna, kobe beef and veggie burgers. Shakes include “Oreo Overload” and “S’mores.”

Slider fans, meet Stax Burger Bistro. Whether you’re jonesing for the classic beef version of these mini delights or something more unusual — say, a wild boar burger topped with coconut-curry sauce and Asian slaw or a lamb burger with feta cheese and grape tomatoes — this is your place. Don’t miss the cocktails, either.

Smashburger, a national chain, boasts fresh — never frozen — 100 percent Angus beef that is, indeed, smashed, then seared and seasoned on the grill.You can build your own burger at this fast-casual eatery or try one of their variations, including the Arizona burger. Sides include French fries, Smashfries, veggie frites, haystack onions and chili.

Another spot-on concept by restaurateur Sam Fox, Zinburger dishes up gourmet hamburgers, salads and sides as well as a full bar. Try a burger with manchego cheese and Zinfandel-braised onions or feast upon the BLT salad with Nueske’s maple bacon and cowboy ranch dressing. Desserts include an oldschool fave, hand-dipped milkshakes.

Historic Charm If folks commuting ’round the downtown area seem to be happier these days, it might just be thanks to the tasty yet inexpensive breakfasts and lunches they’ve discovered at Bistro 202, literally steps from the light rail tracks at Central Avenue. This tidy little gem inside the historic Hotel San Carlos underwent a transformation last summer and added new offerings. Now, the morning eggs and noontime burgers draw crowds.

 POSTINO CENTRAL

Chelsea’s Kitchen

Hula’s Modern Tiki

Rancho de Tia Rosa

A feeling like you are visiting Sonoma County, Chelsea’s Kitchen is a retreat. Sit aside the huge fireplace or stand around the indoor/ outdoor bar to enjoy the rustic comfort food. Fried chicken that will make you come back the following night and deserts that include the red velvet cake and other daily specialties.

Hey, hep cat, have you cruised Central lately? No? Swing by Hula’s Modern Tiki for drinks that’ll knock your socks off and Hawaiianinspired eats like the Spicy Shrimp Caesar Salad and Duke’s Luau Pork Plate. The spacious patio at this retro-modern hangout also causes swooning.

At Rancho de Tia Rosa, the vibrant paint scheme and funky décor evoke an exotic Mexican hideaway. But the real scene stealer at this north Mesa treasure — aside from the delectable food, anyway — is the patio. Brimming with lights and set amidst a lushly landscaped backdrop, this is the spot to while away cool Arizona evenings … and maybe even pop the question.

A spot on the mister-bathed patio at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville in Glendale may not snag you a view of the Keys, or even a glimpse of Camelback, but it does offer something else that’s cool: an up-close seat to the Westgate City Center’s fountain show.

Located at the foot of Pinnacle Peak, Sassi has been given the distinction best place to dine outdoors by multiple publications and untold numbers of guests. A roaring fire pit and views of the Valley give this Southern Italian establishment accolades all around.

French Flair In just a few years, Amuse Bouche — a tiny, French-infused bistro tucked inside an unassuming strip mall in Surprise — has gained quite a following from critics and foodies alike. The artistry of the French-trained, husband-and-wife team of chefs Kierstin and Snir Mor is apparent in such delights as quiche Lorraine, salmon benedict and even their far-fromhumble meatloaf platter.
