Scottsdale: The Phoenician Resort Summer Dining Offers
Carol and I were recently invited to join a small group of journalists on a progressive dinner at The Phoenician, a AAA Five Diamond resort, to sample their fabulous summer dining menus.
Dining Tip: not only do our fabulous Scottsdale resorts offer fabulous stay-cation rates in the summers, but you can also find wonderful summer dining offers as well.
We sampled fare from Relish Burger Bistro, which offers some of the best burgers in town (mini Kobe burgers pictured to the right). We’ve enjoyed the Relish Burger Bistro numerous times, and highly recommend it. Plus, tater tots come with your burgers. What’s not to like about that?
Culinary Countdown Summer Menus – Available Through September 30, 2015
When we were done noshing at Relish Burger Bistro, we then moved on to three-course tasting meals a Il Terrazzo, and J&G Steakhouse. Carol and I had not been in J&G Steakhouse before. The steaks were perfectly done, and the views from the tiptop of the resort were amazing! And, Il Terrazzo has always been a favorite of our as well.
Here’s the scoop on these very fun and special summer offers…
