LON’s at the Hermosa Takes Fine-Dining Underground
Posted January 10, 2013
Previously private wine cellar opens for underground fine-dining experience

(Paradise Valley, Ariz. – January 10, 2013) – Four Diamond dining is going underground. Normally only available for private party functions, the underground wine cellar at LON’s at the Hermosa is now open to guests who are interested in a subterranean fine dining experience.
“After seeing continued success with our cool dining dinner series, which brought guests in the wine cellar during the hot summer months, we wanted this space to remain exclusive while still being a unique dining option year round,” said Director of Food & Beverage David Jette.
Guests dining in LON’s subterranean space will also be a part of history, as the space was previously used as underground tunnels (or escape routes) when the original owner, cowboy artist Alonzo “Lon” Megargee, would have his buddies over for a night of drinking and gambling and the sheriff would come by unannounced. While no longer passable, the previous pathways would lead to Megargee’s old stables, where his buddies could get on their horses and ride into the night, with the sheriff being none the wiser.
Only available 72 hours in advance, LON’s wine cellar will be featuring the following six-course menu ($85) created by Executive Chef Jeremy Pacheco, that also comes with the option of an Arizona wine pairing for an additional $40:
taylor bay scallop “ceviche”
tobiko caviar, pickled onions, yuzu-soy sauce

Recently named one of the 2012 “Top 500 Hotels in the World” by Travel + Leisure Magazine and Condé Nast
Traveler’s 2011 Reader’s Poll pick, The Hermosa Inn is a jewel of a hideaway in the heart of the Valley; minutes
from Scottsdale, yet surrounded by an exclusive neighborhood in Paradise Valley. Originally hand-crafted in the
1930’s by cowboy artist Lon Megargee as his private residence, the Inn’s adobe architecture has kept its “old
Arizona” character and charm. All 34 casitas are surrounded by spectacular landscaping and beautiful desert vistas.
The $2 million remodel of the accommodations retains the legendary personality and intimate atmosphere of the
original hacienda, while enhancing the accommodations with upgraded amenities for a more luxurious experience.
The culinary centerpiece of the Inn is Lon’s at the Hermosa, the celebrated Four Diamond restaurant renowned for
“artful American” cuisine, which is complemented by the Last Drop Bar, aptly named after one of the many
paintings by Megargee that can be seen throughout the historic inn. For more information, visit or call 602.955.8614.
