Bourbon Steak. This upscale steak restaurant run by top-rated chef Michael Mina has been living up to the royal reputation of the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. Its severe but stunning stone-and-glass entry lets people know that they are in for something serious—seriously good. Its modern elegance is as sumptuous to the eyes as the food is to the palate. Select from American-grade or Japanese Kobe beef, but be prepared for steep prices. Even the fries are luxurious
