Sure, it was named one of's Most Romantic Restaurants in the United States this year, and in 2011, it got a nod for the same thing by Travel + Leisure magazine, but that recent scuttle isn't news to us — for years, we've known this farmhouse turned eatery, nestled in the historic Farm at South Mountain, is a love fest both in setting and cuisine. In a charming backdrop of pecan trees, organic gardens, and rural tranquility, chef Greg LaPrad embraces the idea of local, seasonal food with a constantly evolving menu — and many of the ingredients are harvested at Maya's Farm next door. Whether you're whispering sweet nothings to a new lover between sips of a Peach Old Fashioned or glass of Arizona wine under the stars, or holding hands with your soulmate over a dish of dreamy homemade pasta in front of a crackling fire, this restaurant and wine bar's got amore written all over it.
