Binkley's Restaurant

6920 E. Cave Creek Road Cave Creek, AZ 85331 | Cave Creek | 480-437-1072

Location Description:

Probably the best restaurant in the greater Phoenix area, on a par with five-star joints like Thomas Keller's much-ballyhooed French Laundry in Napa. Apparently, genius loves company, as chef and SCI grad Kevin Binkley worked side-by-side with Keller at the French Laundry after a stint at The Inn at Little Washington in Virginia. Now, foodie pilgrims are trekking to Cave Creek to sample Binkley's French-informed, modern American fare. Standouts include the bacon-wrapped tenderloin, the squab, and the duck breast, but the menu changes often, and pretty much anything Binkley cooks up is worth the drive and the ducats. Make reservations. The place fills up nearly every night of the week.
