Dining in a five-star hotel doesn’t have to mean dressing snazzy. Need proof? We have some — literally.

Proof is the new American canteen at Arizona’s Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North, and comfort is practically a prerequisite. It’s the kind of place where kids hover over classic lunch trays, servers don gingham and denim, and TVs showcase vintage cartoons and John Wayne Westerns — there’s even a train track winding through the dining room. While dishes run the gamut from lobster rolls to chocolate bacon waffles, all of the ingredients used at Proof are sourced exclusively in the good ol’ US of A. Thirsty? Have the soda jerk make you a boozy shake, or hit up the bar’s selection of small-batch American spirits.

An ever-changing selection of handmade candies — think caramels and saltwater taffy — is perfect for Proof on the go.
