Date nights are an important part of any relationship. It is a good time to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Whether you have kids, pets, or it is just the two of you, it is important to spend time together as a pair.
One thing that a lot of couples enjoy doing is trying out some of the great restaurants we have here in the valley. Recently, my husband and I got the chance to check out an amazing date night spot, Orange Sky at Talking Stick Resort.
If you are looking for awesome food, wonderful service, great ambiance and a spectacular view- this is the spot for you. Orange Sky is at the top of Talking Stick Resort, and offers one of the best views of the valley.
Talk about a romantic setting. My husband and I were treated to a quiet dining booth, facing west just as the sun was setting. For those who enjoy wine, Orange Sky offers one of the finest wine selections as well.
Our meal began with a shared plate of Artisian Cheeses. I couldn’t tell you which one was best- it was all gone pretty quickly. Between the cheese, the honey, the almonds and more, it was a delicious way to kick off our dinner.
We opted to try a couple of different dishes for dinner so we could get a good idea of the variety of options on the menu. My husband enjoyed the Grilled Elk Loin. If you’ve never had grilled elk, it is so tender and delicious. A great alternative meat option.
I gave a fish dish a try, enjoying an amazing Branzino. This full fish was very tender, easy to eat, and it was wrapped in bacon and no one can go wrong with bacon!
The sides are ala carte and plenty big enough to share. We chose to share forged mushrooms and sunchoke risotto. This by itself would have been an amazing dish and definitely was a great accompaniment to our wonderful meal.
We were celebrating my husbands birthday so they brought him a special flourless chocolate cake at the end of our meal. There were a number of other choices including gelato, cheesecake and more. Something to satisfy pretty much any sweet tooth.
Orange Sky also offers a Happy Hour Sunday – Thursday from 5pm-7pm in the lounge to give you a chance to try out a few things on the menu.
We would highly recommend Orange Sky for a special date night spot for any couple looking for a few hours of together time. For more information, you can log onto their websitefor a full look at their menus.
