One of the Coolest Restaurants in the West (…and it’s not in LA!)

bluehoundThe Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails is located inside the Hotel Palomar in downtown Phoenix and is the city’s newest and, we think, best restaurant to come along in some time. This modern space is gorgeously designed and would not feel out of place in New York or San Francisco. This is big city dining at its finest. The rustic chic decor, the floor-to-glass windows, the quirky menus and the beautiful lobby create a hip, bustling experience unmatched in this city working hard to make its name as an urban powerhouse. The cuisine is a creative, upscale take on comfort food: bacon-infused tater tots and macaroni & cheese, along with generously-sized portions of braised beef ribs that are a must-try. For after dinner drinks, hit the Lustre Bar on the hotel’s rooftop, a laid-back outdoor lounge with yummy libations and sprawling views. The Blue Hound earns our highest recommendation.
