With ingredients sourced from Native American tribes around the country, the food at Kai is as adventurous and alluring as any you’ll find in Arizona. It’s all highly conceptual—courses are billed as “birth,” “the beginning,” “the journey,” etc.—and wildly creative, from the melon-and-crab appetizer to the Msickquatash, a braised lamb shoulder with succotash, to buffalo tenderloin with saguaro-blossom syrup. Only Binkley’s can match Kai’s 13-course tasting menu. These are some of the most exotic flavors in the Southwest. Add service that is second to none and, if you’re lucky, a big-sky sunset, and you have an unforgettable meal.
