Litchfield's Set to Open Friday at The Wigwam

Head West, dear foodie!

Jerry Colangelo's $7 million renovation of The Wigwam -- the historic luxury resort in the West Valley -- is finally coming to fruition with all-new dining options, including a new farm-to-table concept that James Beard Award winner Chris Bianco headed up, called Litchfield's

Named after Paul Litchfield, the founder of Litchfield Park, the restaurant opens Friday, January 14, and replaces the resort's former signature eatery, Red's Steakhouse. (Meanwhile, Red Allen's replaces the more casual spot, The Grill at the Wigwam. A new menu will debut Jan. 20.)

Litchfield's chef de cuisine, Brian Cooper, worked as sous chef at such local gems as Lon's at the Hermosa and T. Cook's, and was hand-picked by Bianco to oversee the kitchen. His seasonal, rustic menu that showcases sustainable local ingredients. 

Small plates and sides include a roasted Duncan Farms beet salad, cavatelli with homemade pork sausage, garlic, and chiles, and roasted or wood-charred vegetables, while big plates put the wood-fired oven to good use. Look for citrus wood-fired free range chicken with fork-mashed gold potatoes with buttered spinach, and wood-fired pork chops with braised cabbage and Wilcox applesauce with dates.

Litchfield's will be open for dinner nightly at 300 E. Wigwam Blvd. in Litchfield Park. Call 623-935-3811 for info or reservations.
