Romantic, Foodie magnet, Tasting menu, Formal, Perfect for a special occasion

This charming, family-owned gem is one of Scottsdale’s best-kept dining secrets for romantic and special occasion four-course prix-fixe dinners. Chef Gus Lewkowicz changes the menu weekly, using only seasonal locally sourced ingredients. The wine list is refined, and the house cocktails are as inventive as their names—the Smoke and Mirrors mixes mescal, dark rum, peach, and amaro sfumato liqueurs. The wood-paneled dining room is intimate, and the popular candlelit courtyard is an ivy-covered secret garden with palm trees and a trickling fountain. The artfully composed food ranges from delicious soups and compressed melon salads to grilled lamb chops and beautifully prepared seafood. Dessert is a must.
