Paradise Valley, AZ 85253

Paradise Valley’s historic El Chorro was originally constructed in 1934 as a school for girls and was eventually transformed into a restaurant and lodge. While it no longer provides education in the formal sense, it does continue to enrapture its visitors with both its stunning views of Camelback Mountain against a cactus-spotted desert and all-around Western charm, which is, arguably, didactic in its own way. The food on offer at El Chorro is sustainable, locally grown, and made with all-natural ingredients, with highlights including Rocky Mountain Lamb Chops with white bean puree, cranberry chestnut relish, and seasonal vegetables, and seasonal wild salmon with purple forbidden rice and garden carrots.
