As part of LON’s at the Hermosa, the newly opened dining space features a brick floor that contrasts with rock walls, while medieval furniture accented with red velvet cushions bring castles and dragons to mind. The small space is actually the restaurant’s wine cellar, but from now to September, it is a neat little hidden space for Scottsdale locals and visitors.
