Biltmore Area Dining Suggestions

on May 19 in Local Phoenix | 2 comments

My dad called recently to let me know that one of his golfing buddies was coming out to Phoenix for business (Biltmore area) and ask me to put together a list of restaurant suggestions.  I was happy to do it because I love dining out and sharing my experiences.  I thought I’d post my recommendations for others  who might be visiting the Phoenix area and looking to narrow down dining choices too.

Here are my restaurant suggestions by cuisine:

 Southwest
Lon’s at the Hermosa Inn (at a quaint historic resort with Western decor, http://www.lons.com/), Roaring Fork (casual dining, http://www.eddiev.com/), Dick Richardson’s restaurants: The Rokerij (we have been and it’s good) or Dick’s Hideaway (we have not been) both at http://www.burningembersphoenix.com/

Asian/Sushi (in Scottsdale except where noted)
Roka Akor (we have not been but gets rave reviews, http://www.rokaakor.com/), Stingray (good, ultramod atmosphere, http://www.stingraysushi.com/), Zen 32 (our neighborhood joint, creative cocktails, open late and in Phoenix near the Biltmore http://www.zen32.com/)

Seafood
Steamers at Biltmore Fashion (http://www.steamersgenuineseafood.com/) or Ocean Club (has a reputation for being quite the scene for local celebrities, as one of the Mastro’s restaurants, which includes City Hall Steakhouse that my father may have mentioned http://www.mastrosrestaurants.com/)

French
Christopher’s (also at Biltmore, http://www.christophersaz.com/), Coupes des Tartes (in a quaint older house, with a seasonal menu and BYOB with corking fee as they have no liquor license http://www.nicetartes.com/menus.html), and any of the Vincent restaurants depending on the meal and day of the week (for brunch or lunch, the Market Bistro or The Camelback Market, for lunch or dinner Vincent on Camelback, all at https://www.vincentsoncamelback.com/)

  1. Oops, a friend told me Steamers is closed now. Are there any good seafood places near the Biltmore? I know there’s a Bluewater Grill closer to the 51 on Camelback but never been. I went before it changed names and that place was kinda icky. Is there a new menu/chef/atmosphere? Only other places I can think of are Salt Cellar (but Scottsdale way) and Foster’s (never been, and I think in Scottsdale too).
