Sam Fox’s soon-to-open luxury hotel, The Global Ambassador, announced new details concerning all five original restaurants that will open within the hotel in mid-November.
The Global Ambassador will combine a refined and elevated hospitality experience that is locally connected yet created through a global lens. The restaurants embrace that same ethos and are influenced by Fox’s extensive international travels – highlighting his favorite dishes and flavors from countries and cultures around the world.
“As the hotel name implies, the restaurants are an expression of all these spectacular places. We’re now several months away from opening our doors and I’m excited to showcase what has been almost a decade in the making,” said Fox, who is opening the hotel under his company Author & Edit Hospitality in a statement. “These five restaurants are gathering places, not only for travelers and hotel guests, but for locals who have been instrumental in our success.”
Guests will soon experience the collection of culinary experiences, including:
Le Âme is a Parisian steakhouse that pays homage to traditional French fare with the steakhouse touch. The menu has a wide variety of classic French dishes like Steak Frites Au Poivre and French Onion Soup along with a new take on dishes like Tuna Carpaccio and Brick-Pressed Chicken Coq Au Vin. The cocktail program is also designed to mirror the cuisine – ingredients, perfectly executed with drinks like Le Spritz Nouveau and French for Grapefruit. Le Âme offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.
The Parisian patisserie, Le Market offers pastries, espresso’s and cheese presentations curated by the in-house fromager paired perfectly with natural wines in the evening.
Mexican and Peruvian-inspired dishes and drinks are served poolside. The bar offers a wide range of margaritas and authentic cocktails like Guava Caipirinhas, each made with fresh ingredients and pressed juices. Peruvian Ceviche will be available with a variety of seafood options like shrimp, white fish and scallops, or order the Cancha, shallow-fried corn seasoned with lime and salt.
The Lobby Bar delivers favorite cocktails while welcoming dynamic musical stylings – jazz trios and special artist-in-residence nights. The Lobby Bar serves a mixture of classic and craft cocktails with a European flair. Two libation highlights are the Basil & Ginger and Caffe Du Jour. You can complement your cocktail with something from the all-day snack menu such as Lobster Croquettes and House-made Potato Chips with French Onion Dip.
théa Mediterranean Rooftop:
theà, which translates to goddess of light, is a Mediterranean Rooftop spot inspired by the sun-soaked Mediterranean region and is in the shadow of Arizona’s Camelback Mountain. The menu includes mezze, pasta and coastal seafood with dips, flatbreads, vegetables and marinated protein skewers, all designed to be shared.
Within the hotel will also be the Global Ambassador Club, Arizona’s first-of-its-kind, members-only club where members have access to a variety of exclusive services, amenities and their own private restaurant, The Grill.
