Vincent Guerithault, chef/owner of Vincent on Camelback, is considered by many to be Phoenix’s culinary prize. For nearly 30 years, Vincent has been combining his expertise in classic French cooking with Southwestern ingredients to create a unique blend of flavors that has become his signature. His style is constantly evolving. Recently he’s brought more of a Provençal flair to his menu, reaching deeper into his French roots. Critics note that his food is always “intriguing and inspiring.” Patrons say it’s sumptuous.

Vincent’s love for cooking began in his youth in France, where he worked at L’Oustau de Baumaniere in Les Baux de Provence, and Maxim’s and Fauchon in Paris. He came to the U.S. in 1976 to be sous-chef at Chicago’s Le Français, and within 10 years opened his own restaurant here that helped put Phoenix on the culinary map.

Vincent was the first chef ever to receive a Citation of Excellence from the International Food & Wine Society. He has enjoyed countless commendations, including the James Beard award as “America’s Best Chef: Southwest” and the prestigious Chevalier de L’Ordre du Merite Agricole on behalf of the Republic of France. For more than a decade, Zagat has ranked his restaurant “most popular” and “best in area” and Mobil Travel Guide has awarded it four stars. Gourmet magazine, Conde Nast Traveler and Travel & Leisure all have lauded Vincent and his restaurant for his tempting food and attentive service. In 2003, Vincent’s on Camelback was placed 24th on the World’s Top 50 Restaurants by British based Restaurant Magazine.

TheParlor-photo-400x267

A wood oven and a simple vision for a rustic italian eatery is where it all began. that foundation and a long, creative journey has lead us to where we are today. our commitments to craft, value, freshness, and environment have successfully propelled the parlor forward through each changing season, and each passing year.

this building originally housed the salon de venus — a mecca for bobs, beehives, and nearly six decades worth of “cutting edge” hairstyles and spa treatments. the owners of the salon decided to hang up the shears in 2007. through some luck and good fortune, the mei family was able to claim the space and begin dreaming up the parlor. during the massive renovation, a large portion of the old building was demolished and repurposed into all of the wood elements you see around the room, including the tables you will sit at. the salon de venus lives on in the new and sustainably built interiors.

so hopefully you find all of that interesting, but let’s be honest—it’s really all about the food. the parlor is fully committed to offering a menu that reflects the best ingredients each season has to offer. this is the core of our simple and approachable food philosophy. everything we serve is handmade daily, including all of the breads, pastas, and pastries.

serving this community and having a positive impact on the budding food culture of this desert oasis will always remain our passion and our mission. thank you for coming on this journey with us and thank you for the years of continued success. we look forward to many, many more!

If you’ve never dined fondue-style before, then The Melting Pot is truly a great first choice! The combination of a warm atmosphere, ambient lighting and outstanding cuisine make the Arrowhead location an impeccable restaurant for any special occasion; even a casual night out on the town!

You begin with the decision of choosing two, three, or more courses to enjoy. The options are endless! Literally, we have menus that offer endless fondue! We prefer to start by melting blends of cheeses while you try not to drool on the table, and then follow with a delicious salad. For the main event, you’ll simmer tantalizing meats, flavorsome shrimp or lobster, all accompanied by appetizing vegetables and sauces. As far as chocolate goes, that’s an entirely different story. Are you a Flaming Turtle fan? Or how about a S’mores admirer? With over eight different options, you will find it tough to choose only one!  Pair any course with an Arizona craft beer or local wine selection too!

Our Glendale restaurant is located in Arrowhead on 59th Ave just south of the 101 in the NW corner of the Citadelle Plaza. Feel free to stop by after a long day of shopping at the Arrowhead Mall.  We guarantee a fresh handmade cocktail or an excellent wine will take the stress away! Whether you are celebrating a ten year anniversary, or simply celebrating Friday night, The Melting Pot is known as a dinner to dine for.

If you are looking for one the finest restaurants in the Ahwatukee Foothills area, look no further than the fondue experience of a lifetime at The Melting Pot! Choose from 2, 3 or more mouthwatering courses to complete your romantically fun dining experience.  You can even pair your experience with an Arizona craft beer or local wine selection too!

We start by melting cheeses, seasonings and other secret ingredients right before your eyes! We then follow that delectable course with a light dinner salad to change up your feasting palate before the main course is presented. The fondue effect then continues on to entrée to fit everyone’s exclusive preferences.  Whether you are a Steak Lover, a Seafood Trio fan, Vegetarian fanatic or even a Gluten-Free diner; we have a plate that will surely satisfy you! Last but definitely not least (sometimes it even comes first!), we have chocolate fondue. With an entire menu devoted to these little morsels of heaven, your chocolate decision might be the hardest one you’ve ever had to make.

Although it technically has a Phoenix address, this unique Melting Pot location is found in the heart of the township of Ahwatukee. Just drive a couple of miles west of the I-10 on Ray Road, and you will find yourself at one of the tastiest and most romantic restaurants around! There is even a ballroom dancing school right next door, what a perfect idea for an incredible date! What most people don’t realize is that this location is one of the closest ones to the East Valley! Chandler, Gilbert and Queen Creek, that means you!
