Malee's Thai Bistro. This cozy but fashionable eatery in the heart of Scottsdale's Main Street Arts District serves sophisticated, Thai-inspired fare. Try the crispy pla: flash-fried whitefish fillets with fresh cilantro and sweet jalapeño garlic sauce. The vegetarian Arizona heatwave red curry is a must, along with curries made to order with tofu, chicken, beef, pork, or seafood. You specify the spiciness—from mild to flaming—but even "mild" dishes
have a bite. 7131 E. Main St., Old Town, Scottsdale, AZ, 85251. 480/947–6042. www.maleesthaibistro.com.
