Carcara opens at the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown


New York-based Celano Design Studio has unveiled its design of Carcara, the latest addition to the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown hotel’s F&B line. Completed as part of a property-wide renovation, the new restaurant evokes modernity with lush greenery and warm tones inspired by the desert landscapes of Arizona’s Sonoran Desert region. “Carcara celebrates the natural wonders of the Sonora region, with particular inspiration coming from cotton fields and citrus groves,” says Vincent Celano, founder and CEO of Celano Design Studio. “We used materials like cotton fabrics, clay pots and wood to bring the feel of the outdoors into the restaurant and create a lush escape into the resort.”

The 276-seat restaurant spans 7,000 square feet and includes a central bar, indoor lounge, main dining room, and a trio of individually designed private dining rooms. Carcara also offers The Grove, an outdoor lounge lined with Cara Cara orange trees and anchored by a traditional fireplace and two fire pits.

A mix of clay pots and large wooden planters hang above marble paving and a mix of ocher and golden hues in the sun, while a 14-foot-tall chestnut oak grows through the trellis in central wood, creating the focal point of the design. Glass and metal lanterns also hang from the branches, emitting a soft glow.
