elements Restaurant Review

: Situated on the northern slope of Camelback Mountain amid the grounds of the posh Sanctuary Resort, this contemporary American restaurant, which borrows the clean lines, muted colors and natural materials of Japanese design, makes Zen simplicity look spectacular. Floor-to-ceiling windows capture the splendor of sunsets and nearby mountains, encouraging customers to relax and drink in the natural beauty from plush couches and private booths. The Asian-accented cuisine echoes the restaurant's elemental elegance. Seasonal ingredients are simply prepared, allowing their natural flavors to shine through. The menu changes monthly, but might include entrées such as roasted sea bass with rutabaga, bacon dashi and coriander peanut salad; Szechuan short ribs with Chinese broccoli, lotus root, sticky rice and fragrant black bean sauce; and black truffle chicken with Bloomsdale spinach, celery root, pancetta and kosho butter. If you're partnered up, don't miss cocktails on the patio. If you're not, try your luck in the Jade Bar (crowded with single professionals) or have dinner at the community table.
