Bourbon Steak

Let's face it: Upscale steakhouses can tend to be one trick ponies. However, with a chef like Chris Curtiss at the helm, North Scottsdale's Bourbon Steak is elevated to something unique, while still being familiar. Grilled octopus, raw fish crudo dishes, gnocchi with mussels in a white wine sauce, and whiskey-centric classic cocktails are a great place to start at this luxe, dark, and stunning restaurant inside the Fairmont Princess Resort. You also won't be disappointed with sides like crispy roasted Brussels sprouts with pancetta and black truffle mac and cheese. While you could certainly splurge for a $75 Maine lobster pot pie, you'll feel equally pampered getting a butter poached steak. In particular, the mesquite-grilled filet mignon is as tender and moist as it could possibly be inside, with the smokey, uniquely Southwestern mesquite flavor on the outside. The grill also serves up fish and Wagyu beef options. Read our review.
