Nice to see something positive about Arizona in out-of-state media, especially when it's the LA Times acknowledging that we have some great restaurants here outside of the realm of Mexican food, writing up May's Counter, the brunch at Ventana Canyon, Vero Amore, Downtown Kitchen and Cocktails and this description of 47 Scott:
Also new to the downtown scene, 47 Scott does popular American comfort food. No matter what the seasonal menu offers, order the mac and cheese, made by someone who knows it all starts with béchamel. When I wouldn't shut up about the sweet-tart grape tomatoes and rocket, the server laughed and said, "Thank him," referring to the local grower as he walked by with another armload of produce. 47 Scott is nearly as righteous for its herb-tinted interpretations of retro cocktails. Designate a driver and have a Basil Collins, or try the Brick House Old Fashioned with bacon-washed rye. 47 N. Scott Ave.; (520) 624-4747, http://www.47scott.com. Lunch Mondays through Fridays, dinner Mondays through Saturdays. Entrees from $9.
