Many times in my life I have found myself in love with a restaurant because of the decor, the ambiance, and the architecture itself. And that surely had lots to do with my pure delight at

But The Compound is unique. Yes it is very easy to become overwhelmed by the beautiful gardens and the spectacular design work of Alexander Girard. But equally impressive is the mouthwatering cuisine of Chef Mark Kiffen.

Chef Kiffen fuses his renowned Southwestern Cuisine with Contemporary American Cuisine in a manner I have not experienced anywhere else.

One other impressive note is that you are actually encouraged by the top notch staff to relax and take your time so that you have a real possibility of saving room for their magnificent desserts.
