Foodie alert for those who have Arizona on their list. I’m presently on a culinary tour of Scottsdale, Arizona. This past weekend I got to take my girlfriend and a couple friends to two sensational restaurants, both at top-notch Scottsdale resorts. Friday night we went to “Elements,” which is located at the Sanctuary Resort at the base of the famed Camelback Mountain, near Echo Canyon Park. The fantastic cuisine was matched only by the outstanding views.
On Saturday night, we headed toward North Scottsdale to the Pinnacle Peak area where we dined at the Four Seasons Talavera Steakhouse. At Talavera you feel the memories from Scottsdale’s frontier days, with its vibrant Southwestern décor woven throughout. The textures, materials and colors are a cornucopia of design elements…rustic, yet highly refined in its Southwestern style. The views of the city lights and the culinary concoctions are simply sensation.
