This review took place in October 2016.
For breakfast we drove up the street to New York Bakery & Deli. We all ordered coffee with bagels (or bagel sandwiches) to go and sat at their pet friendly tables out front. After breakfast we made our way to Montezuma Castle National Monument.
There is ample parking at the monument and you make your way through the visitor center to the monument. The entire area is pet friendly and the staff love dogs! This was our 2nd visit and first for my parents. Even though we've been here before it is a very cool site to see.
When looking at the parks nearby we discovered Tuzigoot National Monument. We decided to forgo shopping in Sedona for some more historic and cultural sightseeing. We arrived at the monuments visitor center right in time for a guided tour. My mother stayed behind as there isn't any shade and the walk is a bit of an incline. So keep this in mind. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the monument and the surrounding area. The tour was short but this was another unique place to visit.
On the way out of the restaurant my parents stopped to by a few items from their store. I noticed some gelato and sorbet and just had to try the coconut lemongrass. It was delicious! Bold in flavor and yet refreshing. I keep saying I would go all the way to Santa Fe for Taco's from El Chile Toreado and I would for sure go to Sedona just for this pizza!!
We started our meal with drinks, the charred calamari salad and the hummus sampler plate. For entrees we ordered the country style chicken breast, the duck confit, curried lamb adobo, and the seared scallops and pork belly. Fred thoroughly enjoyed his huge portion of steak tartar! The staff at the restaurant are always smiling, knowledgeable about the menu, and understanding when it comes to allergies. The food is beautifully presented, seasoned perfectly, and consistently delicious.
