Mabel's On Main

Last night I took the bf out for his pre-birthday dinner, just us two and I've been wanting to try this new spot called Mabel's on Main (it used to be Mabel Murphy's for some of ya'll that remember).

I loved it. Very chic in the heart of downtown Scottsdale, so you know it's trendy. The only con that I have is if you plan on going just for dinner, go earlier than 10. LOL. We had reservations at 9:30 and well by 10:15 the Scottsdale "IT" crowd was already making their presence known. We were sitting in the middle of the restaurant surrounded by all the people. I felt like an animal on display as I devoured my Chicken Lollipop and blue cheese (seriously to die for), while the bf grubbed on bites of filet w/ horseradish (he said it was delish). I recommend getting their probably around 7 so you can enjoy your food.  Also, don't go expecting a huge menu; it is very limited, yet very yummy.

Overall, I had a great time, with a great person, and enjoyed some nice drinks and food.

This is from their website:

Through the front door of Mabel's is our main lounge, where you will be immersed in the grandeur of a lost era. Studded leather seating, intricately embossed tin ceilings and dark wood furnishings are a throwback to times when sophistication and luxury were exclusive to all but a few. You will find our hand-crafted cocktails at your fingertips and a late-night menu at your disposal. The lounge is large enough to lose yourself in, if that is what you desire, yet small enough to feel subdued in an intimate setting.
