1. LON’s at The Hermosa Inn

Background: LON’s at the Hermosa, a AAA Four Diamond Award-winning restaurant renowned for its globally inspired Arizona fare, is the culinary centerpiece of The Hermosa Inn. Age-old cooking methods of smoking, roasting and wood grilling are employed along with European techniques to create a cuisine utilizing the flavors of the region. Executive Chef Jeremy Pacheco creates menus that highlight fresh, seasonal ingredients, which are almost exclusively sourced locally. Recognized by Wine Spectator Magazine with its “Award of Excellence” since 1996 and “Best of” awards annually since 2015, LON’s features a subterranean wine cellar for private events and showcases more than 700 varieties of wines.

Strengths: “Much of the credit goes to Mother Nature as we are fortunate to have a patio anchored with 100-year-old trees surrounded by colorful and fragrant landscaped beds and walkways, with sweeping views of Camelback Mountain. We set the scene with our cascading fountain, wood-burning fireplace and exceptional cuisine to create an authentic Arizona dining experience.”
