PHOENIX – Popular Scottsdale restaurant Rancho Pinot is closing its doors after nearly 30 years.

Owner Chrysa Robertson said in an online announcement Monday the upscale eatery will serve its last meal May 15.

Robertson cited burnout for her decision. She opened the American food restaurant at Scottsdale Road and Lincoln Drive in 1994.

“I have put my ‘everything’ into Rancho. It feels like second nature to me, so familiar. But the joy is starting to fade. Having the luxury of time to reflect this past year has been a real gift, and I took an honest look at my life,” she wrote.

Running the business, “had begun to consume me – all the details, all the moving parts – and things start to look different as you slide into your mid-60s,” Robertson said.

She added that she would be back cooking and welcoming diners but perhaps in a simpler manner.
The restaurant is accepting reservations for its Wednesday-Saturday service and offering limited takeout on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

She added that anyone who bought a gift certificate and won’t be able to use it, email ranchopinot@hotmail.com to request a refund.
