Suggestions for dining/eating in Prescott...including New Year's Eve. Will be there for three days.

    I've had good meals recently at El Gato Azul, Sweet Tart, and Iron Springs Cafe. I don't know what any of them are doing for New Year's, though.

    Here are some reviews I have posted in the last few months:

      Prescott isn't prime Chowhound territory. I'm a bit out of date, but the best bet for years has been El Charro, half a block N of the plaza on Montezuma. Try the oddly-named "Mexican French Toast", salsa on the side.

      The East Indian place in Frontier Village (Home Depot) was quite good last time we tried it.

      Good luck!

        I think you are a bit out of date if you think El Charro is the best bet for mexican food! YUCK!

        I would give American Jazz Grill 129 and 1/2 a call. Maurice is my favorite server in town. They are part of the Four Corners Restaurant Group which includes 129 and 1/2, El Gato Azul and N'awlins.

        I would also check out the Peacock Room at the Hassayampa Inn to see if they are doing anything special for New Year's Eve/Day. They have wonderful breakfasts.

        I would guess that Sweet Tart would be doing something special as well.

        Also, if you don't mind that it's in a casino, the last time I ate at Prescott Resort's restaurant, it was pretty good. That was a couple years ago, though.

              They have some excellent breakfast spots in Prescott but my favorite is to eat in the back room at the Dinner Bell. Every other weekend they usually have huevos rancheros as a special and they are by far the best I have had. I'm beside myself when we are up there on an off-week, they're that good.

                Murphy's is an excellent restaurant.

                  Back from Prescott. Enjoyed Murphy's...especially the bread pudding. Found a fantastic breakfast place on the creek, "Dinner Bell Cafe"...best buckwheat waffle I've ever tasted...funky, great service and really clean, good food.

                    Just read Melcarr's post on the Dinner Bell Cafe...missed it before we left.

                    No, it isn't. IMO.
