My wife and I met at El Chorros in 1987. Over the years, we entertained many friends there
including clients, congressmen, business leaders, fashion experts, and many interesting individuals. It is unique among America's restaurants and dining underneath Camelback Mountain is spectacular. We moved to the East Coast and were gone for about 10 years, Upon our return it had both closed and reopened. On our first visit, we were big disappointed as the food was mediocre and the charm was gone. Even the sticky buns were only poor renditions of their former self. Then about a year ago, I began taking some of my East Coast and West Coast business associates there. I was pleasantly surprised as both the charm and the food were in recovery mode and my guests were enchanted. This week was my wife's Birthday and because it carries so much significance for us, we dined at El Chorros, It was an incredible evening as the restaurant that we have loved for so many years was back to its roots. The evening was perfect, the hostess charming, the drinks just right, the service impeccable,
the sticky buns the best ever, the chicken livers crisp, and the food exquisite. If you have not been to El Chorros recently, go immediately. My Rhode Island attorney considers it his all time favorite restaurant, as there is a charm that is so very special to itself. El Chorros is an Arizona treasure.
