  • The Scene:

    Within a modern and elegant dining room at the center of main resort, acclaimed chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten brings a comfortable gourmet dining room to one of the Southwestís most prestigious desert retreats.  Equal parts hotel eatery and swanky destination for local foodies, visitors arrive to a stunning design space of dark charcoal walls of stacked stone and indoor-outdoor lounge with crackling fireplace and open wall stretching out to an outdoor terrace with additional fireplace and endless desert sky. Translucent panels of white fabric divide separate area of the dining room, suspended with crystal chandeliers and pendant lighting.

  • The Food:

    This isnít your usual hotel restaurant, obvious from the name Jean-Georges and his virtual seal of culinary approval that comes with his J&G Steakhouse eatery at the ever-posh Phoenician. A nightly dinner menu include raw bar specialties like a shellfish platter, oysters by the dozen and chilled lobster with lemon aioli. Soups and salads include a decent French Onion and steamed shrimp salad with mushroom vinaigrette thatís a natural splash of summer. Heartier appetizers like crispy calamari and tuna tartar are good if not great, better are the terrine of foie gras or sweet pork belly with ginger confit. Main course is slow-cooked fish like a miso-crusted Halibut or milk-fed veal porterhouse thatís a good alternative to the 24-ounce porterhouse.

  • Last Word

    Don't expect your usual sedate Phoenician eatery, as this restaurants offers a more-modern setting than the traditional plush-decor of the surrounding hotel.
