Fall is my favorite time of year in Paradise Valley. Evenings are cool and crisp in the 50s and daytime highs are in the 70s with what seems like limitless sunshine.
Paradise Valley is home to world-class resorts and golf courses as well as many more activities and luxury amenities.
As Thanksgiving is just days away, here are my top picks for dining out on this day of thanks in Paradise Valley.
Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain invites families to a four-course feast at the acclaimed Elements restaurant or a bountiful buffet in the Views Ballroom. On Nov. 26, 2015, from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Elements and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Views Ballroom, guests can indulge in a meal of gourmet delights by executive chef Beau MacMillan, while overlooking the captivating scenery of Paradise Valley and Camelback Mountain.
Prado at Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia is a great spot to gather with family and friends to give thanks. The meal will be served from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving. Savor herb-rubbed, organic, free-range turkey and achiote-crusted rib eye, both featured on the delicious Thanksgiving menu. For dessert, try the pumpkin or pecan pie and creme catalana.
Rita’s Kitchen at the JW Marriott Camelback Inn is offering a Thanksgiving brunch to be remembered, with a variety of selections ranging from traditional brunch favorites, including eggs benedict, omelets to order, and French toast, to delicious Thanksgiving staples, which will be offered from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Rita’s Kitchen will also offer a limited Thanksgiving dinner menu.
