The Scottsdale Showstopper
Mastro’s is the standard for steak in Phoenix
Known for its enormous Nebraska corn-fed rib eyes and a Wine Spectator award-winning wine list, the steakhouse, which got its start in Scottsdale, now has 14 locations in major cities throughout the United States.
While many come for the steaks and chops, which are as good or better than any Midtown New York steakhouse, the real stars are their side dishes. Take the lobster mashed potatoes and buttery creamed corn, which are finished with cream and more butter. They’re larger and more decadent than typical steakhouse fare, and big enough to split with multiple people. Also don’t miss the spicy shrimp cocktail. It’s the best in town.
The bar scene is a spectacle perfect for people-watching and cocktail and wine enthusiasts alike. Dozens of men and women rotate through every night dressed in short designer dresses and after-work ties. The wine list and cocktails are quite expensive, but it’s possible to get a good bottle for less than 90 dollars. Regardless of the client or crowd, you’re sure to have a good time.
