t’s that time of year again where orange will not only be seen fi lling the October sky during sunset, but can also be found in pumpkin patches and Halloween festivals throughout the Valley. One of the beautiful things about the state of Arizona is its wide variety of different cultures and our calendar section highlights a handful of events where you can experience the state’s diversity—including Dia de los Muertos. Speaking of culture, you can’t visit this lovely region without tasting the bold flavors found in Southwestern cuisine, and we have the perfect places to dine at in the Valley that specialize in just that. School is in full swing, and with it comes a wide variety of options to explore near Arizona State University’s campus and downtown Tempe. If you’re looking for a specific activity, our Guide has an extensive list of places that cater to each and every traveler’s needs.

Top Eateries for Southwest Fare

If you visit the Southwest, enjoying a meal of top-notch Southwest fare should be high on your must-do list. Southwest fare differentiates itself by its use of several ingredients, including chiles. It also often utilizes the “three sisters”—corn (usually blue), beans and squash, which were staples of local agriculture. Think hearty fare with spicy edge. Throughout the state there are several standout restaurants. MICHELLE GLICKSMAN

SIERRA BONITA GRILL

OPPOSITE PAGE: COURTESY ROARING FORK. THIS PAGE: ©DEBBY WOLVOS

ROARING FORK Those in the mood for Tortilla Soup with rotisserie chicken, avocado and tortilla chips; Slow Roasted Pork Shoulder Carnitas with black beans and fresh hot buttered flour tortillas; or Grilled Fish Tacos served on corn tortillas with guacamole, corn pico, remoulade and salsa verde can stop by Roaring Fork in Scottsdale. Here, the wood fired cooking captures the spirit of bold American cuisine—lamb, chicken, beef, pork and fish entrées are prepared by wood fire rotisserie, open flame grill or wood oven roasting.

ELOTE CAFE Up in Northern Arizona, find authentic fare at Elote Cafe in Sedona. Owned by best-selling cookbook author Chef Jeff

Smedstad, this restaurant features Southwestern and Mexican cuisine made from seasonal, locally grown ingredients. Menu options include Smoked Brisket Enchiladas (14hour smoked Niman Ranch beef brisket with roasted tomato chipotle sauce and crema) and Sea Bass Asado (grilled adobo seasoned wild corvina sea bass with salsa verde and lime aioli).

SIERRA BONITA GRILL Named for (and inspired by) the oldest, continuous family-run ranch in Arizona, Phoenix’s Sierra Bonita Grill serves up the perfect dose of Southwestern charm and food. Find the flavors of the Southwest in choices such as the Smoked Red or Green Chile Pork Roast with charro beans, tomato rice, salsa fresca and a flour tortilla. The From the Ranch

selections include a variety of meats, and the Guacamole starter is made in a “molcajete.”

GHOST RANCH: MODERN SOUTHWEST CUISINE At Ghost Ranch, they claim to bring “the untamed flavors of the Southwest to South Tempe”—and they do. The menu reflects the multicultural history of the region with a selection of hearty cowboy steaks, taco platters, and house specialties such as the Aztec Cake, with layered tortillas, pulled chicken, roasted green chile, sweet corn and cheese blend. Brunch options include the Ghost Ranch Breakfast, with a blue corn quesadilla, braised greens, beans, adobo pork, sunny side up eggs, pico de gallo, avocado, crispy parsley and Christmas sauce.

TACO GUILD

Set in a historic 75-year-old Scottsdale adobe home, with a large patio shaded by 100-year-old pecan trees, Old Town Tortilla Factory is known not only for its entrées such as Pasta Calabacitas (garlic rubbed chicken with corn, squash, chiles, onions and chipotle sour cream sauce) and Achiote Ribs (pork ribs broiled then glazed with achiote BBQ sauce, served with Southwestern coleslaw and homemade shoestring fries), but its margaritas filled with a variety citrusy flavors and homemade tortillas.

CANYON CAFE The mission at Canyon Cafe in Phoenix is to “skillfully prepare and creatively present food and beverages influenced by the American Southwest.” The food relies on Mexico’s heritage, influenced by Spanish Native American and Western United States cultures, with Bison Meatloaf (ground bison meatloaf with peppers, bacon and onions, served with roasted tomato BBQ sauce, chile mashed potatoes and chef ’s vegetables) and Pecan-crusted Crab Cake (sweet potato, poblano peppers, charred corn and pecan-panko crust, tossed greens, fruit salsa, snakebite beans and Southwest remoulade sauce).

RICHARDSON’S CUISINE OF NEW MEXICO This Phoenix destination serves up Southwest fare amongst Southwest décor, including Saltillo tile and colorful woven rugs. The menu offers choices such as the New Mexican Surf & Turf, which features beef tenderloin, two bacon-wrapped jumbo shrimp, and three flat chorizo enchiladas with red or green chile; and the Roasted Pork Molé, with green mole, finished with pumpkin seeds and served with black beans, rice and a flour tortilla—not to mention the Green Chile Potato.

There are also quesadillas, tacos and more.

Old and New World culinary traditions are celebrated at Phoenix’s Taco Guild, which is housed in a historic church circa 1893 that still includes original stained glass windows, a wooden beamed ceiling, floor and other original mementos. Traditional Mexican techniques are utilized to offer the best of classic and modern flavors, with a menu that offers an extensive list of taco options, and special dishes such as The Guild Bowl with quinoa, beans, pico de gallo, cilantro, corn, plantains, tortillas and choice of protein. The weekend brunch menu includes options such as the Fried Tamale Cubano Egg Benedict (slow-roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese, Dijon sauce over fried corn tamale with chile and cheese, topped with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce, and served with papas bravas).

If you’re unsure about following in Bigfoot’s footsteps, follow Tempe locals’ instead. Both lead to the hearty fare at The Lodge Sasquatch Kitchen. Later in the day, make your way to La Bocca Urban Pizzeria + Wine Bar for Italian, or indulge in upscale cuisine on House of Tricks’ patio.

You’ll wish you’d brought a bigger suitcase after a day spent perusing Downtown Tempe’s shops. Create a signature scent at Lotions and Potions—as they have been providing fragrances since 1969. Become lost in the world of literature at Old Town Books, and get a nostalgic, international or locally sourced sugar-fix at Candy Addict.

Caffeinate at Royal Coffee Bar—that way, at the end of your fun-filled day, you can continue into the night. Fat Tuesday has your daiquiri cravings covered (with 190 proof cherries available to top them off ), and C.A.S.A. serves a Bucket-O-Booze and has a daily happy hour (3 pm7 pm) with half off draft beers.
