A new restaurant opened in Scottsdale recently, Cuttlefish Scottsdale. Cuttlefish Scottsdale is in the former location of McCormick & Schmicks, Gainey Village, Scottsdale. Gainey Village is located on the Southeast corner of Scottsdale Road and Doubletree, in the mid-Scottsdale area.
Cuttlefish Scottsdale has been remodeled and is much brighter, contemporary, open feel than the previous setting. There's a raw bar as you enter with scooters for seats. The menu is small, but mighty, and the prices didn't seem out of line with nearby restaurants. Everyone in our group loved their dinner selections. And the service and friendly staff make you feel right at home.
Joey Maggiore, 2010 Star of Food Network's show, "Family Style" has opened the restaurant with wife Christina. Joey is the son of famous local restaurant owner, Tomaso Maggiore of "Tomasso's" located at 32nd and Camelback. Looks like this restaurant owner is no stranger to great food! Cuttlefish Scottsdale should do well in a great location and with a great menu.
Hats off to the Maggiore's!
