Voted one of the nation’s top 50 restaurants by the New York Times, Tratto prepares richly flavored Italian dishes. It’s the brainchild of James Beard Award winner Chris Bianco, who uses local and regional ingredients (Arizona wheat for pasta and bread) in dishes such as ricotta ravioli with first-of-season fava beans and lemon or smoked and braised pork shank with breadcrumbs Milanese.

One cannot walk into Café Monarch and not gasp. White Louis XVI chairs, gilt mirrors, candelabras, and glittering chandeliers set the scene. This family-owned restaurant has wowed the locals and visitors as the most romantic restaurant in Phoenix for many years.

Be sure to get some wine — master sommeliers assist with pairings.

Kai is Arizona’s only restaurant with a AAA Five Diamond Award and Forbes Five-star Award (for 12 years). Old-world décor gives way to dishes made with foraged or Indigenous-grown ingredients such as Pima blue corn- and sumac-crusted quail or grilled tenderloin of tribal buffalo. The service here is like no other. Kai, which means “seed” in Pima, honors the culture and food of Pima and Maricopa.
