Mountain View


This restaurant is close to my work and is a good place meet friends for a glass of wine and nice dinner.  It's located on the second floor of a building and has a large patio with a wonderful view of Camelback Mountain.  It's called Cave & Ives and it has quickly become one of my favorite places.  I balanced the little point and shoot camera on the end of the table to get this shot of the top of the mountain.  It was a balmy night so those gas heaters weren't needed.

A few of you who read my blog asked what was on the menu of the dinner party I featured last Monday.  Well, David posted the menu in his comment on my post.  So scroll down and read just what a wonderful cook and host he is.

Looks like the palm trees are in a celebratory mood and are all lit up.

Looks like it was a fine evening. Sipping wine with this view would signal a wonderful night to me.

My goodness, what a feast David laid out. I hope the portions were small to be able to enjoy all those courses!

The place looks great and the light is wonderful.

This restaurant must be no more than 4 or 5 miles from our house, yet I am unfamiliar with it. Maybe that is doe to the fact that it is located on the second floor of a building rather than at street level.

What a terrific view. I love eating outside with the heaters on, so that won't be happening for a few more months!

I agree with you. This would be a good place to meet friends and socialize.

Have a happy Easter.

Have you ever climbed on Camelback? I did several times and always had a good time. It's really nice seeing it again and I would love this restaurant!
