Tucked into the foothills of Tucson’s Tortolita Mountains in The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain, CORE Kitchen & Wine Bar is a destination in its own right. Whether you’re staying upstairs at the resort or 45 minutes away in the city, it’s worth making a trip to the upscale-but-playful, intimate-but-convivial CORE for a memorable meal. During breakfast, dinner and Sunday brunch, the open kitchen turns out American cuisine rooted in Sonoran influences and Southwestern ingredients — you can even pick your own citrus fruit from the resort’s grove for your morning juice. Come evening, wine is the star; the wine list includes a host of less obvious choices (check out the “ABC” or “Anything But Chardonnay” whites), and a wine table in CORE’s center displays just a few inspiring favorites from the restaurant’s 2,800 bottles.
