Elements at Sanctuary Resort – Paradise Valley

Posted on 15 August 2011

Just around Camelback Mountain shared with the Sanctuary Resort is Elements, known for its sophisticated ambience, polished service with famed Iron Chef winner Beau Macmillan at the helm of the classic Asian and European fusion spa food menu. Soft lights and massive windows create a relaxed, romantic mood. Polished marble floors and art deco table separators complete the elegant décor. The views over Paradise Valley are stunning but it’s the food that deserves full attention. Begin with an assortment of petite plats (small plates), such as the ridiculously delicious fire roasted island creek oysters with chinese sausage & hijiki or almond crusted soft shell crab with gingered spinach & sesame orange emulsion. Mains range from bacon wrapped filet of beef with garlic mash, blue cheese, balsamic onions, merlot demi glace to char grilled flat iron with shishito & corn spoonbread, grilled mushrooms, miso mustard butter, and the curious bbq short ribs “Korean style” with vegetable fried rice & an organic egg. The Korean Style short ribs are a true fusion of Asian meets South American comfort food. For dessert the german chocolate cake coconut crisp & coconut gelato is life affirming but all the sweets on the dessert menu are notable, and a gracious sommelier can match wine selections to your meal.
