T. Cook's

4.5 (531) $$$$ $$$$ American, Modern, Mediterranean


Summary: A blend of classic and modern, with a Mediterranean twist and scenic dining.

T. Cook's stands out as a gem in the Royal Palms Resort & Spa, offering a unique dining experience that combines the elegance of historic architecture with the freshness of New American cuisine inspired by Mediterranean flavors. Diners can relish their meals indoors under majestic vaulted ceilings or opt for one of the two picturesque patios, which feature captivating views of Camelback Mountain, cozy fireplaces, and vibrant bougainvillea. The restaurant has evolved to attract both those celebrating special occasions and a younger, more casual crowd. The removal of white tablecloths in favor of a back-lit wine display signals a shift towards modernity, yet T. Cook's retains its charm by serving unexpected and tantalizing dishes. Highlights include striped bass crudo with estate grapefruit and house-made saffron pappardelle with braised lamb ragù. The rich desserts, such as the chocolate praline torte with pretzel ice cream, are a fitting end to the meal, while the carefully curated wine list offers rare finds from boutique vineyards around the world. This culinary haven promises an unforgettable dining experience that honors its northern Mediterranean roots while embracing contemporary sophistication.
