Prado Restaurant Review: Prado offers Andalusian/Southern Spanish-influenced cuisine at Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia, with an artistic flair focusing on wood-fired fare. The setting is chic, with lots of dark wood and Moroccan tapestry, and the mood is relaxed (periodic flamenco dancing punctuates the live music), while some of the best seating is on the patio, overlooking the resort pool and Camelback Mountain. Overseeing the kitchen is chef Alex Stratta, who local foodies might remember from his tenure at Mary Elaine's in Scottsdale. He later made a name for himself in Las Vegas at Steve Wynn's resorts before returning to the Valley of the Sun. Hi menu offers small bites such as grilled Spanish octopus and spicy tomato albondigas, while entrées include adobo spiced chicken, Moroccan-style lamb shank and roasted halibut with marinated artichokes, pancetta and potatoes. The wine list keeps the Mediterranean theme going, featuring a nice array of Spanish wines.
