El Tovar Dining Room

10 Albright St. , El Tovar Hotel
Grand Canyon Village , AZ , United States http://www.grandcanyonlodges.com/el-tovar-421.html
(928) 638-2631

The view: Soak in two billion years of geologic history—layered in slivers of deep orange, dusty violet, moss, and gray—from the dining room at the El Tovar Hotel, set about 50 yards from the edge of the Grand Canyon’s South Rim. While a few windows look out over the canyon, the restaurant’s Canyon Room offers some of the most direct views; diners can look across the arid landscape to the North Rim.

The food: Southwestern flavors are woven into the menu, from buffalo carpaccio on roasted poblano crostini to wild Alaskan salmon tostada with organic greens and tequila vinaigrette.

Tip: Table requests are accepted, but coveted tables go fast and are first-come, first-served. For easy access to the best tables, go to breakfast in the dining room, when reservations are not accepted or necessary, or drink in the views with cocktails on the hotel’s veranda.
