LON’s at the Hermosa Inn

When I eat out, I love going to cozy restaurants, especially ones with a bit of history. One of my favorite places is LON’s at the Hermosa Inn, which serves artful American cuisine.

After adding a studio, he called it “Casa Hermosa”, and later opened it as a guest ranch. The Hermosa Inn is in the middle of Paradise Valley, a beautiful and secluded residential area.
