Cottonwood is "A Culinary Hot Spot"!

Great article in the Arizona Republic

Roger Naylor, a local travel and entertainment writer, wrote an article talking about dining in Cottonwood featuring several local restaurants becoming known for their fine fare.

"Cottonwood has grown into a destination for wine lovers. Tasting rooms line Main Street in Old Town, housed in Prohibition-era buildings and fronted by covered sidewalks. So it’s not surprising that terrific restaurants have sprung up as well."
