Flying V Bar and Grill
Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, 7000 N. Resort Drive, 299-2020
The drive from midtown to Ventana Canyon's Flying V Bar and Grill is approximately 223.6 miles. OK, that's an exaggeration; it just seems it's that long of a drive, especially when one is anxiously anticipating the experience of sitting on the restaurant's huge, outdoor deck, overlooking a gorgeous, gurgling fountain and the city's lights while sipping a delicious Flying V margarita and munching on venison nachos. The inside of the Flying V is nice, too, but unless you're visiting there in the midst of a torrential downpour, you must sit outside.
