This Arizona landmark has been a restaurant for 80 years—back when everything around it was desert—and is set up to display the splendor of Camelback and Mummy mountains as well as any eatery in Paradise Valley. (Despite the name, it’s not a hotel.) Weekend brunches are among the most popular meals here, partly due to the meltingly warm sticky buns served with every order. The dinner menu is classic American, done with brio—trout almandine, steaks, beef stroganoff, rack of lamb and the like—with a nod or two to non-carnivores, like seafood pasta and a polenta-and-vegetable Napoleon.
