Fodor's Expert Review Kai

$$$$ Chandler Service Fodor's Choice

One of the finest restaurants in all of the Valley, the prestigious Kai ("seed" in the Pima language) uses indigenous ingredients from local tribal farms to create innovative Southwestern cuisine. The seasonal menu reflects the restaurant's natural setting on the Gila River Indian Community. Standout appetizers include escargot, wild mushrooms, and goat cheese with truffle crema on native toast. Entrées like lobster with brown butter crumble and a duo of goose and rabbit are indicative of the menu's creativity and range. Request to dine at sunset; the restaurant has huge windows that showcase gorgeous mountain and desert views. And if you have the time, opt for the tasting menu and let the staff awaken your senses.
