If you love the flavors of traditional Southwestern cuisine, Scottsdale is your kind of town. There are more than 600 restaurants in Scottsdale, with many of them adopting the flavors and ingredients of Mexican, Native American and European flavors, all coming 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.
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.
For a quirky, delicious and refined menu that riffs on Southwestern ingredients and flavors, check out Weft & Warp Kitchen + Art bar at the Andaz Resort in Scottsdale. The dining room might be beautifully chic, but the real attraction is the menu, which dabbles in southwestern flavors and ingredients in new and unexpected ways.
