Skilled chefs can look at a spread of ingredients and see the potential for a composed dish, much like the way an architect can look at an empty lot and see the potential for a tree house with its own parking lot. Taste the fruits of foresight with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of upscale continental cuisine at Remington's in the Scottsdale Plaza Resort.
The stalwart chefs captaining the stoves at Remington's craft a menu of perennial classics characterized by its occasional infusion of Southwestern flavor. The kitchen's flavorsmiths sheathe a 10-ounce, center-cut pork chop within a glaze of prickly-pear barbecue sauce ($22), and the New Zealand rack of lamb dons an overcoat of fresh mint sauce ($30). Mesquite-kissed chicken breasts dance atop a grill before nestling into a bed of bowtie pasta with their cadre of oven-dried tomatoes and fresh basil ($21). The bounty of the sea yields itself with platefuls of broiled garlic shrimp ($22) and a Sonoran crab-cake appetizer ($12) that whets appetites with its chipotle rémoulade and stories about hitchhiking through Candyland. A lunch menu also beckons noontime customers with a host of dishes that lay siege to entrenched hunger pangs.
There are many ways to dine at Remington's. An outdoor patio swaddles patrons within a blanket of fresh air, whereas the indoor lounge seating allows diners to indulge their aural senses with live-jazz performances and recorded banjo concertos.
The Salon & Day Spa at The Scottsdale Plaza Resort
A lush estate of 40 acres near Camelback Mountain surrounds The Scottsdale Plaza Resort, which, in turn, surrounds the Salon & Day Spa at The Scottsdale Plaza Resort. Inside, the staff greets every visitor with a robe and slippers to wear during a recommended cool shower to initiate detoxification.
The packed service menu plies muscles with six types of soothing and therapeutic bodywork and an infrared sauna, and salon professionals master current haircut and nailcare trends. Stylists deftly transition from creating complex weaves for female clients to trimming beards for gentlemen, and aestheticians tailor men's skincare regimens from products rich with jojoba oil, papaya, and soothing cherry enzymes that ensure prompt, rugged five o'clock shadows.
