480 991 6887's insider take:

Petite Maison has been serving a menu of simple French bistro classics at pleasing prices in Old Town Scottsdale since late 2009. The tiny room is lit by candles and dainty chandeliers, and the kitchen turns out soft and plump escargots in ponds of butter and steak tartare topped with an egg and served with air-thin house-made potato chips. Go Thursdays through Saturdays after 10 pm for the quirky late-night menu they call Staff Meal. Chefs are given free rein to go off-menu with dishes like foie gras tacos and spicy Thai sweetbreads (the selections change weekly and are announced on the restaurant's Twitter feed). Affable chef/owner James Porter usually kicks back at the bar about this time, as well.—David Tyda
