A World of Flavor at Heritage Highlands

You're on top of the world with the view and cuisine of Heritage Highlands

The total package is what lures you back to Heritage Highlands: a regionally-acclaimed chef; presentation of distinctive dishes that revel in seasonal ingredients; and breathtaking mountain views framing the dining and banquet experience. And with renowned Tucson restaurateur Michael Veres now at the helm of its dining venues, Heritage Highlands - the prestigious active-adult community located in Dove Mountain - seems to have it all in the way of culinary and event-planning excellence.

Heritage Highlands' Food & Beverage Director-Chef Michael Veres has taken his favorite cuisines and melded them into delectable personal creations that make the restaurants of Heritage Highlands unique and popular cookery adventures. We're talking about traditional home-styled favorites, Southwest specialties, American and Italian fare, all served up in the world-class backdrop of lush high desert and panoramic mountain vistas.

Dazzling Views, Superb Cuisine
The spectacular setting is again what makes the difference in the Heritage Highlands banquet experience. There is unique elegance for the eye and the pallet that serve up a memorable experience for the most special event - from office party through to fundraisers. The exceptional outdoor venue, set on the Heritage Highlands Clubhouse back lawn, makes for inspired and beautiful wedding memories. Expansive mountain and city views complement the exquisite service and contemporary ambience. Banquet packages, which adhere to a variety of budgets and dietary preferences, may be customized.

The public as well as residents are invited to use the banquet facilities and restaurants. For dining, there is the more formal restaurant (The Highlands Bar & Grille) and the outside dining venue (The Patio on the Green). A suite of private rooms and banquet hall seats parties from 25 to 250 people.

Both restaurants are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with dinner opened to the public Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings. An upscale menu specializes in grilled meats, fresh seafood, pastas and entrée salads. There are traditional, home-style comfort-food offerings, with sumptuous sandwiches, soups and delicious desserts in the ever-changing menu. Wednesday night buffets take on a distinctive flair with all-American favorites including pizzas. An extensive drink list of premium cocktails and an award-winning wine list also are featured.

Delivering an Award-Winning Experience

Tucson native Veres landed in the restaurant business after honing his affinity for cooking at American Chef Federation. After his studies Veres worked in restaurant and resort kitchens including Daniels here in Tucson. He opened Cibaria Cucina Italiana to rave reviews and came to Heritage Highlands just this past summer.

Food critics throughout the city have praised Veres' cooking and the refreshing, exciting menus he selects. New items include succulent chicken dishes and farm-fresh salads; his superb wine pairing dinners result in delectable tastings and receive rave reviews.

Looking to enjoy high cuisine with a twist of comfort food and magnificent mountain views added in? No doubt about it - Heritage Highlands is the place to savor great Tucson dining and special events.
