Cartwright's Sonoran Ranch House Restaurant Review

: Given Cartwright's mesquite-wood bar, massive beams and cowboy paraphernalia, you'd think the restaurant's title refers to that familial foursome on the Ponderosa. Instead chef-owner Eric Flatt named this ruggedly handsome local haunt after an Arizona ranching family, famed for its prize cattle. Naturally, the menu favors steaks, house-made sausage, buffalo and elk, but it doesn't confine itself to manly food. The seafood selection is strong, and each dish may be prepared in one of four different styles: Mediterranean, Southwestern, French and Asian. Flatt also has a passion for Native American ingredients, sprinkling indigenous delights like hand-harvested nopales and figs into his recipes. If there's room for dessert, try the "Campfire S'more."
