Nellie Cashman's Monday Club Café with Executive Chef Chris Masco | Westin Kierland Resort |Scottsdale, Arizona Who is Nellie Cashman? And what is the Monday Club? And why did the Westin Kierland name their three-meal restaurant in honor of the two? “Everything we do is about the essence of Arizona,” said Westin Kierland’s director of food and beverage, Jeff Barba. “We’ve done a lot of that in banquets. All the restaurant names. Culture Keepers.” Culture Keepers honors contemporary pillars of the community. Arizona’s official historian, Marshall Trimble, was among the first. Trimble wrote the essays about the historic personalities whose names appear on plaques around the property. Like Nellie Cashman, an adventuress who ended up in Tombstone, Arizona while following precious metal strikes around the Americas. The highly spirited prospector with a hard-as-nails will and a strong spiritual vein, also did well in the hospitality industry. Besides running several restaurants during her travels, she ran a boardinghouse in Tombstone. Nellie had a knack for benevolent causes, and the latter doubled as hospital and food kitchen for the down-in-their-luck prospectors. Marshall Trimble summed her up: For a lady only five feet tall, in a land where people were measured, not by sex, color or creed, but by what they could do, Nellie Cashman certainly assayed out as a giant. Nellie Cashman’s Monday Club Café—the Monday Club is Arizona’s oldest women’s club—features food themed after popular fare in Tombstone’s mining days. Last year, Barba changed the concept, and Nellie Cashman’s became a steakhouse. Why a steakhouse? There are a lot of steakhouses out there. “There is,” Barba said. “And that’s why. As the saying goes, If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.”
