Valentines Day Dinner Ideas

Blue Hound Kitchen – Next to Kimpton Hotel Palomar Phoenix, Blue Hound offers all the comforts of a neighborhood joint in the heart of downtown’s bustling cityscape. Think sleek and urban, minus the fuss.

Southern Rail – “Southern Rail’s menu is deep with tradition and full of craveable dishes. Whether it’s Gumbo or Fried Chicken, a Classic Burger or a beautiful local salad, it’s the process and time spent in the kitchen developing the flavors that stands for who we are.”

The Farm at South Mountain – Quiessence at The Farm delivers an authentic “farm-to-table” experience using local produce, meat and wine to create a refined, hand-crafted menu. Sourcing on-site from Soil & Seed Garden, Chef Dustin Christofolo curates each week’s menu using freshly harvested vegetables, edible flowers, eggs and herbs. Tucked away near the back of the property at the Farm at South Mountain, Quiessence delivers farm-focused and uncomplicated cuisine in a very special intimate setting. The restaurant features a delightful array of cheeses, artisan breads, handcrafted pastas and local produce, with unique indoor and award-winning outdoor dining. The wine list features both domestic and Arizona wines, as well as an international reserve list.

Federal Pizza – Housed in the restored 1950’s First Federal Bank building designed by Al Beadle, Federal Pizza is a midcentury-meets-modern restaurant specializing in wood fired pizzas, sandwiches, pastas, and salads. Also not to miss are our selection of wines, old school wine coolers and craft beer on tap and in bottles.


Arrowhead Grill – From the moment you first set eyes on an Arrowhead Grill steak, you know you’re in for a special meal. The searing steak, still sizzling in the iron skillet as it’s brought to your table, is a work of perfection, and a savory one at that. Come in and see for yourself.

Fuego Bistro – Zagat Survey 2017
“Tucked away” in North Central Phoenix, this “reasonably priced” Pan-Latin practitioner produces “novel” dishes that are “served with a smile and attention to detail;” “romantic” outdoor dining in the courtyard is an “experience not to be missed.” 

Let us know what restaurants we should add to the list! And we hope you have a very happy Valentines Day!
