GOLD Earns AAA Four Diamond Rating for 20th Straight Year

Posted on November 22, 2013

Tucson, Ariz. (Nov. 22, 2013) – GOLD, the fine-dining restaurant at Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort & Spa, marks its 20th consecutive year as a AAA Four Diamond establishment in 2014. GOLD is the only Tucson restaurant to maintain the coveted status for two full decades.

In addition, Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort & Spa received its fifth consecutive Four Diamond Award for commitment to excellence throughout the entire property. AAA Arizona released its 2014 ratings in early November.

“We could not be more proud to able to carry on this AAA Four-Diamond Award legacy,” said David Yamada, general manager of Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort & Spa. “GOLD is honored to mark 20 years as one of Tucson’s very best restaurants.”

Since 1985, the AAA Diamond Ratings have ranked restaurants for America’s travelers. Only 2.6% of some 29,000 AAA-rated restaurants reach Four Diamond status, which is defined as: “Distinctive fine-dining. Often a highly creative executive chef, imaginative presentations and market-fresh ingredients. Wine steward often available. Upscale ambiance.”

The rating comes just in time for the launch of GOLD’s all-new décor and menu, refreshed and updated for 2014. Under Executive Chef Antonio Rodriguez, GOLD champions fresh, inventive Modern American cuisine, drawing from global flavors, but with a Southwestern influence. Ingredients are locally sourced whenever possible. Seasonal greens and fruits are harvested from the resort’s organic Chef’s Garden, which includes a grape arbor and more than a dozen fruit trees.

To see what it takes to keep Four Diamond quality for 20 years, experience GOLD for yourself. Visit WestwardLook.com for menus, hours and information and call 520-297-1151, ext. 620 to make your reservations.
