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 entrées, tapas and an assortment of paellas. 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. On the food side, chef Tom Vykulil’s menu offers small bites such as bacon-wrapped and mascarpone-stuffed Medjool dates or grilled lamb chop lollipops with mint crème fraîche, while entrées include branzino with cured tomato, fennel and roasted seasonal vegetables, and diver scallops with saffron risotto, chorizo, fennel and Grana Padano. The wine list keeps the Mediterranean theme going, featuring a nice array of Spanish wines.
