InterContinental Montelucia Resort & Spa made its debut in Paradise Valley in the fall, along with its signature dining destination, Prado. Under the direction of chef Claudio Urciuoli, this Spanish-inspired eatery has all the makings of a romantic resort restaurant: a dimly lit dining room, cozy-up booths and, our favorite, a pasta dish for two.
From New York City to Los Angeles, food lovers are quite familiar with the name Laurent Tourondel, thanks to his beloved BLT brand. Now, Scottsdale’s Camelback Inn is home to the celebrated chef’s latest dining destination, BLT Steak.
If heading to The Big Easy this summer, stop in at NOLA’s famous spirits fest. In no time you’ll be seduced by the city and quickly under a spell. It’s a Spirit-ual Thing.
In the June 2005 issue of AFM, we named restaurateur Sam Fox one of our Valley V.I.P.’s. Boy, were we right. Since then, Fox has opened several eateries throughout the state, with the newest being Biltmore Fashion Park’s True Food Kitchen.
