The Mission

I topped off restaurant week with a visit to The Mission -an Old Town Scottsdale restaurant that serves "modern Latin cuisine mixing tradition and ingenuity".  The ambiance was dark, rich and comforting - evoking a mix of Old World elegance and modern Southwest.  The service was a tad brisk, but gracious.  This time, we sampled the prix fixe offerings.  The winners... the Halibut (tender with an interesting tamarind/fennel/mostarda sauce) and the Filet Uruguayan (perfectly cooked and served with crispy potato croquettes).  The BEST dish by far was the Pumpkin Bread Pudding which, in my mind, tops the Cowboy Ciao version.   All in all, a wonderful meal.  Check them out at
