Amazingly good food and atmosphere. Osso Bucco was so full of flavors and delectation. Service was excellent and accommodating for this particular patron. Open environment with enough separation between table for privacy. Noise level ok to visit with companions. Exterior is deceiving as it is...More

You can’t go wrong at this neighborhood gem. The restaurant carries the name of the chef-owner and everything is first rate. From the bar and wine selections to the entree and desserts.

In a strip mall in north phoenix, so you might not expect much but this is a terrific restaurant started by a chef with a good pedigree in this town. Casual and gourmet. A tad expensive

We are open for Dinner, lunch and Sunday BrunchOpen every day for happy hour, dinner, wine flights and all around fun and now lunch and Sunday Brunch, our restaurant offers a hearty menu of regional American cuisine featuring a wood burning grill with an abundance of affordable items, bringing sophisticated and accessible fare to Valley restaurant goers.

The signature menu items are cooked to perfection in our wood burning grill to create a savory and aromatic flavor profile you can only experience at Rusconi's American Kitchen. About the Chef Born in California and raised in Chicago, Chef Rusconi earned his culinary degree from the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vermont. Chef Rusconi has long been a leader in sustainable food before it was trendy to do so Rusconi's culinary track record includes a handful of Mobil 4 Star Awards, and consecutive nominations from the Arizona Culinary Hall of Fame. He's known for revitalizing the cuisine at LON's at the Hermosa Inn, and supporting many local and national charity events, but in his own kitchen, Rusconi's creativity is boundless. From the carefully curated menu to the stunning skylight/community art installation at the heart of the restaurant, this modern day renaissance man has influenced and designed nearly every element and detail you'll experience at Rusconi's American Kitchen. As for his food philosophy, Chef Rusconi says simply, "Buy the best ingredients and treat them with love and respect then apply proper technique. Only by doing that will you be able to deliver the best quality possible."
