The Silver Pine Restaurant is new in Flagstaff, AZ. The location is not, but the restaurant is. A total makeover of the former Little America restaurant happened last summer and the new creation that emerged is the elegant Silver Pine Restaurant and Bar. A back patio was opened up with a beautiful lava rock waterfall feature with the Ponderosa Pine Forest as a pristine backdrop.
From western maple tree tables from Vancouver, BC to the almost 9 foot long by five feet tall Bas Relief depicting native Ponderosa pine cones and needles by Oregon artist, Ellie Ellis, this remodel adds a welcome elegance to this longtime favorite Flagstaff restaurant. The carpets are a custom design by Uster in Northern Ireland. The art prints along the walls are by photographers from a variety of local and international places. The historical images that decorate the walls are from Northern Arizona University and The Arizona Memory Project at the library archives of Arizona State.
‘Impressive’ was the word of the moment when I walked into the restaurant. Bedazzled with my first sights of the large decorative mineral and majestic photo of the San Francisco Peaks that loom in the entry way, I was intrigued. Discovering that the jeweled minerals are from Zee’s Minerals in Tucson, AZ., and the painting was a special commissioned piece by artist, Greg Stocks of Salt Lake City, UT., it began to dawn on me that Little America had gone upscale on this immense project. It was the perfect place for a date night. We enjoyed the late afternoon ambiance and the beautiful outdoor scenery sitting by the large open-space windows looking out on the equally impressive serene waterfall and lava rock feature on the back patio. Our food and service were excellent.
