Welcome to Tia Carmen

Renowned chef Angelo Sosa opened Tía Carmen, a new restaurant at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort + Spa in early 2022. Tia Carmen pays homage to chef Sosa's Aunt (Tía) Carmen and celebrates the local landscape, farmers and community of the Southwest reflecting a mix of tradition and modernity. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu showcases flavors imbued from a wood-fired grill and American Indian and heirloom food products.              


To complement the menu, Tia Carmen's cocktail program is overseen by Mitchel O. Bushell (formerly of Gwen, Gran Blanco and Accomplice), focusing heavily on local herbs and spices alongside local producers of small and large batched spirits and a broad program of agave spirits. The wine program is overseen by Eduardo Dingler (formerly of Morimoto Restaurant Group) and leans heavily on representation from Mexico's Valle de Guadalupe as well as wines from the West Coast and emerging European producers.
