Different Pointe of View
Phoenix, AZ 85020
Phoenix New Times's Description
This is one among a handful of Phoenix's legendary restaurants, nestled in the foothills of the northwest valley and serving gourmet dishes that draw crowds. Try the signature dish: Braised Duck Ravioli, with oven-roasted tomato sherry crÃ¨me and shaved Umbria truffles. Also amazing is the Apple Marsala Roasted Pork Belly, served with sweet soft corn polenta, caramelized apples, and chanterelle mushrooms. The Pan Seared Diver Scallops deserve some kind of award, as does the impressive and exhaustive wine list and the tempting desserts, which change frequently. The view is spectacular, but you'll have a hard time tearing your eyes away from your plate, heaped with gourmet treasures.

You want a good view? Come to a Different Pointe of View. When you get there, just go straight... and go up! The restaurant and bar are located at the top of the mountain, but there are signs directing you there. Once you get there, you can either park yourself or valet, and walk up stairs to the bar and the restaurant on the top floor. I have been here several times, and have dined in the restaurant as the sun sets. You talk about romantic... man! And the bar, which is mostly outside, has a nice view and a fire pit. There are couches and comfy chairs for a nice night with a view.
The prices are a bit outrageous. But that is what you have to expect at a place like this with a view like this. They have a good beer list, and some unique cocktails. Oh, and a cigar menu! This is a great place to celebrate a special occasion.
