With its Spanish colonial decor and back-lit wall of salt blocks, this downtown Scottsdale restaurant melds old-world decor and cuisine with a modern aesthetic. Taking its name from the historic adobe church next door, the Mission is best for a light graze. I like to get a few appetizers and a drink and call it a meal. Try the duck carnitas empanadas, the pineapple-glazed pork shoulder tacos, or the Peruvian clam stew. The fries here should not be missed. The bar emphasizes its extensive tequila selection and makes a great margarita. If the weather is good, get a seat on the small patio out front.
