La Fogata at The Scottsdale Resort & Spa

Four brand new culinary destinations are now open at The Scottsdale Resort & Spa, a Curio Collection Resort by Hilton

The resort is nearing completion of a $40 million property-wide renovation, which has brought a remarkable transformation to its culinary landscape, including the opening of four distinct dining concepts that promise to captivate guests with their unique offerings.

Guests will find elevated Sonoran cuisine with global influences, a family-friendly lounge with interactive games, a health-focused café and a hidden speakeasy that have helped The Scottsdale Resort & Spa evolve beyond its 50-year legacy as a conference resort into a full-service luxury retreat appealing to discerning worldly travelers and Valley locals.

The resort’s four brand-new restaurants include:

La Fogata

Situated against the backdrop of panoramic vistas of the McCormick Ranch Golf Club and Camelback Mountain, La Fogata invites guests to delve into modern Sonoran cuisine married with a fusion of global influences. Open for breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner, La Fogata’s menu is meticulously crafted utilizing locally sourced ingredients, including guajillo chiles, white beans, meats and seasonal produce, ensuring an authentic exploration of the region’s rich flavors. 

The menu boasts a variety of bold dishes such as the Beef Carpaccio ($21) with seared A5 Wagyu, horseradish caper aioli, pickled frisée, Manchego cheese, heirloom tomato and radish; House Made Mole Meatballs ($12) with cotija cheese, pea shoots, carrot slaw and fresh flour tortillas; Meat and Potatoes ($29) with handmade gnocchi, browned butter, fresh herbs, braised oxtails, roasted mushrooms and black truffle pecorino; Chilean Sea Bass ($38) with sweet coconut forbidden rice, khao soil curry, wilted arugula and sunny-side-up egg; and the Soup & Sando ($17) a tomato and tarragon bisque and a bacon three-cheese grilled sandwich, a nod to the resort’s original menu. La Fogata is open Monday through Sunday 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The Madam

Step into the allure of a bygone era at The Madam, a speakeasy reminiscent of the Roaring Twenties and the prohibition era. The Madam invites guests on a clandestine journey where classic cocktails meet modern creations such as the Shot To Your Heart ($20) with Dos Hombres Mezcal, Gran Ponche, coconut water, lemon juice, pomegranate compote, agave and egg white, or the Word of Mouth ($18) with High West Double Rye, Celaya Reposado, Aperol, lemon juice, ginger, Demerara sugar and Laguvulin Spritz. Upon check-in, guests receive a secret password, ensuring an exclusive entry into this intimate space. 

For non-guests, acquiring the password becomes a delightful task, requiring interaction with the attentive staff or the resort’s social media pages to find out where The Madam keeps a watchful eye. With a maximum reservation duration of two hours during peak seasons, The Madam offers an ideal setting to enjoy small plates and intimate gatherings. For those seeking an even more private experience, the speakeasy is available for group rentals with reservations. The Madam is open Wednesday through Saturday 4 p.m. to midnight. 

The Social Boardroom

Adjacent to The Madam, The Social Boardroom awaits, offering a casual and welcoming lounge-style atmosphere for all ages. This space invites guests to unwind with various entertainment options, including pool, shuffleboard, board games and a golf simulator. Bartenders and servers stand ready to serve an array of cocktails and casual small bites, including sliders, naked wings with dipping sauces, nachos and more. The Social Boardroom is also available for private group rentals with reservations. The Social Boardroom is open Wednesday through Saturday 4 p.m. to midnight. 

Barnaby’s Café + Wine Bar

The day unfolds seamlessly from sunrise to sunset at Barnaby’s Café + Wine Bar with its curated collection of grab-and-go options. The morning hours welcome guests with a coffee bar and a selection of fresh pastries, breakfast sandwiches featuring meats from the in-house butcher, vegan items from Noble Bread and a variety of teas, espressos and coffee blends utilizing local coffee from Roastery of Cave Creek – ROC2. Throughout the day, Barnaby’s effortlessly transitions into a fast-casual lunch spot with paninis and salads tailored to midday cravings. As the sun begins to retire for the evening, Barnaby’s Wine Bar comes alive, featuring Arizona and regional wines to be enjoyed within the café or out in the Spanish-style courtyard. Local artisans are celebrated with an array of retail products, including Laura’s Gourmet Granola, Cutino Sauce Co., Cerreta Candy Company and Roastery of Cave Creek – ROC2.
