Restaurants Near Paradise Valley/Scottsdale AZ

I live in New York City, and we have Los Dos Molinos here (I checked their site, it's the same place), so I'd like to go somewhere that I can't eat at here.

Is Furio in Old Town Scottsdale?

Thanks for all the feedback. How far from the resort is Old Town?

A car rental is very expensive (we checked) and it doesn't make sense for use only because we're not going to leave the resort except to eat, so it will only be a few times during the weekend.

Is there a good Mexican/New Mexican restaurant within 10 miles of Sanctuary?

Any other good breakfast/brunch spots that are within that same 10 mile radius?

I'd love to find some great local spots to eat, but don't want to go too far - surely there's a lot of things within 10 miles? Most of the restaurants I saw were within 6 miles, as I'd said in my original posting.

Thoughts?

Thanks for the help. We're going for the resort mostly, so switching isn't an option and the rental car is too expensive to just sit in the lot, but we don't want to stay on-site for the entire visit. We have reservations at Elements our first night there, so we're covered. I have done a little research and came up with some stuff for breakfast and dinner - have you ever been to any of the following? According to google maps, they're all less than 7 miles from the resort, so we could take a cab.

Orange Table
Pischke's Paradise
JP Pancake

For dinner which do you recommend, if you've been to either:

Los Olivos - the one on 2nd Street
Frank and Lupe's Old Mexico

I heard good things about Furio for dinner - any thoughts?

Thanks again for your help.

I'm headed to Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain this weekend. I am not renting a car, so will be relying on a cab or perhaps (if lucky) walking to places to eat. I need recommendations for the following meals:

Breakfast - 3 days

Brunch/Lunch - 3 days

Dinner - 1 day

The places should be close to the resort so I don't spend a lot of money on transportation. Casual places that serve great food and aren't chains would be great. Nothing too expensive, as I'm going out to fancy dinners two nights I'm there. Food types of all sorts are welcome - but if you can give me some great, great places for breakfast/brunch/lunch, that would be my first priority. Thank you!
