Who’s hungry? It’s safe to say I am…Well let’s be honest, I am always hungry. We’re confident you will be when you read—or should we say devour—this month’s issue. October is the “Foodie” issue of Paradise Valley Lifestyle! This is one of my favorites!

We are so lucky to live in a place with so many amazing options for cuisine. This is one of the many reasons people love our area; there is no shortage of choices as we are quickly becoming known as a true dining destination.

With the plethora of restaurants and watering holes, we enjoyed filling our pages with a few of the area’s delicious bites and bevvies. 

To name just a few, let’s start with this month’s cover story…yes, please! Lincoln Steakhouse, nestled in at the iconic and historic Camelback Inn, is no exception in providing exquisite and divine options to devour. Executive Chef Jeffrey “Jeff” Pilditch has an amazing array of mouth-watering delectables. 

And, feast your eyes on the latest of ZuZu’s famous Show Stopper Shakes. Wow! 

Learn about Cocktail Squad, founded in Boulder, Colorado, which recently expanded its distribution into the Arizona market. They offer perfect beverage choices for those who love lite, tasty and refreshing adult spirits on-the-go. You can now find these sold at local AJ’s Fine Foods locations, as well as Cellars Fine Wine and Spirits in Phoenix.

While we don’t like to play favorites, the Foodie Issue is near and dear to our hearts. After all, food is not only nourishing (and delicious) but it also brings people together—whether it’s a special anniversary dinner, a much-needed lunch break with coworkers, a friend’s birthday party or even a casual weeknight meal with family. Food is often considered one of life’s great pleasures, so dig in, Paradise Valley!


Be grateful, be kind and live well,
