Fine dining restaurants have a tough time in Tucson, a town where locals have countless inexpensive choices and prefer the casual to the formal. Still, Azul is just the kind of place to take a date for dinner or a business prospect for lunch, elegant without being overbearing—and, to boot, located in one of Tucson’s most visually impressive resorts. The menu isn’t terribly adventurous, but the chef does good things with salmon, steak, Yucatán-style chicken, and even a vegetarian quinoa-stuffed poblano pepper. You won’t find better views of the Santa Catalina Mountains, either.
