Bourbon Steak

34. Bourbon Steak

Diners in search of an upscale, contemporary American steakhouse need look no further than Bourbon Steak at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. Only American Kobe and Certified All-Natural Angus Beef are allowed to touch Chef Chris Curtiss' grill. Every premium cut of meat and fish is slow-poached in butter before being grilled and then placed over seasoned wood-fueled fire. The dining room is beautifully modern and connects to a fireside terrace where guests can enjoy nightly happy hour from 5 to 6 p.m. The first Thursday of every month, the restaurant hosts a Summer Cocktail Class from 5:30 to 5:30 p.m. lead by "Libation Master" Chad Elsner for $25 a person.
