Scottsdale residents have new options for food and beverages from casual to swanky.
New restaurants in the city include a speakeasy-style concept from the team behind The Gladly and Citizen Public House; a bar serving wine on tap alongside charcuterie boards; and several new spots to grab coffee with a breakfast pastry.
Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane rescinded the mask mandate Sept. 21, but residents are still required to wear face coverings in all enclosed public spaces under Maricopa County’s mask mandate.
Lane released a statement saying that each person should continue protecting others and themselves by staying home when sick and by wearing masks around other people. Takeout has a lower risk of COVID-19 spread at restaurants compared to indoor dining, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
