Scottsdale Date Night Ideas

When you’re on a vacation, it’s easy to get tired of dining out—so why not stay in for a change? That’s one of the many advantages of choosing Scottsdale vacation rentals by the owner over staying at a hotel! We have elegant, modern kitchens with every amenity you’ll need to select, prepare and enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal, whether you’re with us for a night or fortnight.

It’s the best of both worlds when you’re away from home! put together this great list of “4 High-End Local Meat and Seafood Markets You’ll Love” to make finding your meal of choice a breeze. Click the picture below or read on below to learn more!

Arcadia Meat Market

Led by a partner at Arizona’s only certified grass-fed beef producer and a second-generation master butcher, this new shop is about all-natural, free-range and pasture-raised proteins. Soon guests can expect to take home meat-centric ready-to-bake items like beef stroganoff, meatloaf and lasagna, along with veggies from Blue Sky Farms, but for now, Colorado wagyu tomahawk steaks ($55 per pound) will suffice. 3950 E. Indian School Road, Ste. 130, Phoenix, 602.595.4310

Nelson’s Meat + Fish

Though many of its meat offerings bear illustrious labels carnivores carry close to their hearts—namely Nueske’s, Superior Farms and Duroc Heritage—knowing that all the seafood found at Nelson’s has been overnighted straight from the source is of equal importance. Fans say they bring the ocean closer with a bag of jumbo stone crab claws from Florida, some smoked fish dip and a bowl of Chesapeake Bay shrimp salad (market prices). 2415 E. Indian School Road, Phoenix, 602.596.4069

Chula Seafood Market

Harpooned swordfish is a specialty from this family-operated and -owned fishery and fish market, but Chula is also a go-to for sea bass, yellowfin tuna, California halibut, and fresh (never frozen) and sustainable seafood mainly from the Pacific Coast. Try the chef’s choice sashimi platter for two or three mouths ($24), or, for instant gratification, get the made-to-order sweet and sour salmon poke or spicy tuna bowl ($14 each). 8015 E. Roosevelt St., Scottsdale, 480.621.5121

The Meat Market

“Responsibly raised. Respectfully butchered” is the calling card at this “whole-animal” butcher shop, where customers get custom cuts of pasture-raised meats from small family farms predominantly in Arizona. Stop in for fresh sausage sandwiches ($7) and take home a crockpot or paleo-friendly meal, a quart of chuck wagon chili ($22) and burgers stuffed with Swiss cheese and mushrooms or cotija and poblanos ($14 per pound) for a barbecue spread beyond belief. 37636 N. Tom Darlington Drive, Carefree, 480.575.4358
