If you love the rich, zesty flavors of traditional Southwestern cuisine, Scottsdale is your kind of town. There are more than 600 restaurants in Scottsdale, with many adopting their own unique blend of the Mexican, Native American and European flavors that come together in the Southwest kitchen.
For a refined dining experience that pays homage to classic Southwestern tradition, nothing beats a meal at Lon's at the Hermosa, the house restaurant at the historic Hermosa Inn. The kitchen artfully blends traditional Southwestern ingredients with European influences, with extraordinary results.
If slow-cooked meats and roasted New Mexico chiles sound like a match made in heaven to you, pay a visit to Carlsbad Tavern, where hearty, chile-soaked dishes are served all day with genuine Southwestern hospitality.
Even casual fans of Southwestern cooking will enjoy dining at SWB Southwest Bistro at the Scottsdale Hyatt Regency, where guests can enjoy scenic views of the McDowell Mountains on the comfortable outdoor patio. Foodies will want to grab a stool inside the bistro, where they can watch the skilled chefs behind the counter create wood-fired specialties with distinctly Southwest panache.
