A New Burger Restaurant in Sedona

A New Burger Restaurant in Sedona

 

Forming a new heart in the Village of Oak Creek, Butterfly Burger is a celebration of Chef Lisa Dahl’s passion for the dining experience. The result is something unique in Sedona, A Couture Burger Lounge. While her contemporaries are fashioning fast-casual burger diners, Butterfly Burger is reveling in low-lite glamour and an unabashed cocktail lounge look and feel.

Dahl set out to create a warm and welcoming destination, delivering elegance and excellence. The subtle details of the design will not be lost on discerning guests. The blacked-out entrance doors are flanked by topiaries and boxwood hedges. Black walls covered in rough-hewn planks of mushroom wood set the tone. The dark sultry lighting builds the mood and complements the amber glow from the bar’s rose-gold mirrors. Dark cobblestone is underfoot and it wraps the bronze butterfly inlaid at the entrance. Fine jazz bathes guests as the hum of quiet conversations ignite the lounge-style experience.

Chef Dahl’s three Burger Battle Championship burgers lead the mouth watering menu. Lisa’s main Butterfly Delights include ten international inspired burgers, plus a Wagyu Beef Hot Dog.

With names like The Waco Kid, Oui Oui Monsieur and Mi Quiero Vaquero your taste buds will be transported from the American southwest to France, Spain even Greece with the Gyro Burger made from a proprietary spice blend of all-natural Colorado lamb.

Vegans, vegetarians and pescatarians can revel with their carnivorous friends.

Surf’s up with the Mowee Wowee – using house created spices rubbed on a Mahi Mahi filet.

They wouldn’t be a Burger place for all, if they just made burgers for carnivores. I myself, crave our Veggie Burgers. Organic Beet Burger, Primo Portobello and the Hipster Burger could convert dedicated meat lovers.

Devils Bridge, a Popular Hike in Sedona

Devils Bridge, a Popular Hike in Sedona

 

Devils Bridge is the largest natural sandstone arch located in the Sedona area of the Coconino National Forest. This is a very popular hike that offers breathtaking views of Red Rock country.

It is a steep but short hike. The official trailhead starts off the unpaved portion of Dry Creek Road and requires a high clearance vehicle to access. If you only have a low clearance vehicle, you can park at the Dry Creek Road trailhead at the paved section, approximately 1 mile from trailhead, or at the Mescal Trailhead located on Long Canyon Road. Depending on where you park you have a few routes to choose from to access Devils Bridge Trail, including the unpaved portion of Dry Creek Road, Chuckwagon Trail, or Mescal to Chuckwagon Trail.

From the parking area off of the unpaved portion of Dry Creek Road, follow the trailmarker for Devil’s Bridge Trail. The early portion of the trail was originally a jeep trail so it is smooth and traverses through washes filled with juniper and prickly pear cactus. The path gently inclines uphill and gets steeper as you continue on.

About 3/4 of a mile from the parking area the trail will come to a fork and you will go left. Here you’ll end up at the base of the bridge. You will then continue up a natural rock staircase from which there are beautiful views. You will reach another level of stairs which will take you up to the bridge.

This popular trail is certainly a tourist attraction so make sure to arrive early to avoid large crowds. This is a fun hike for the whole family.
