Our Labor Day trip dining started off with great guac at RBar and then a miss at BLT Steak at the Camelback Inn. Great Fresh Watermelon Basil Margarita at the bar. Asked for a nice table on Opentable website as was a hotel guest and did not get seated in the main dining room but near the bar eventhough it wasn't that crowded. The pate amuse was served slightly warm which was unusual to say the least having eaten my share of pate living in France. The popovers were very good served with a salt shaker and butter. We ordered off the $50 blackboard menu. Fried Oysters, Asparagus wrapped in pancetta (salty), steak and scallops, spatzel and peas. The scallops were so salty they were inedible which just shows the lack of imagination in the kitchen. All in all a disappointing meal! Fortunately things improved from there.
Breakfast at Rita's was an excellent egg white Fritatta. We also had a light dinner one night with a yellow tomato gazpacho with apple that was yummy.
Sunday brunch at T. Cook's at the Royal Palms was also excellent. Be sure and reserve though.
High quality, good selection and affordable.
Happy Hour at Olive and Ivy for a quick bite on the way to the airport. Asparagus Mushroom flatbread was great.
Service at the Camelback was excellent.
