Re: Sel Restaurant - Fine Dining in Scottsdale

So agree! We were doing the Scottsdale Artwalk, and it just looked so inviting, that we had to stop in, and we loved everything about it. I had that Cerise Fumée cocktail too and a la carte apps with my husband - yellow tomato gazpacho with avocado-lime gelée and peach granita, and a fabulous squash...

Re: Arizona Cocktail Week #5

I won't be able to stay over and do all the seminars this year since my parent are in town, but have bought tickets for the "Mastering drink photography with a Smartphone" and the "Dead Rabbit" seminar. See you there!

Trompo alert! Al pastor tacos at Super Tacos Los Cuais

I know you can all identify with my glee when we did some exploring in Glendale yesterday and found a taco place serving al pastor tacos on a trompo! It's a small spot where you order at the table but pay at the front counter. When we were there, many diners were ordering the al pastor tacos and the...

In my West Valley area, I head to one of my favorite spots: Casa Filipina Bakeshop at 3531 W Thunderbird Rd, Phoenix, AZ.

Re: Taramasalata

I recently bought some tarama at the Caspian Market on North Scottsdale next to the Persian Room (17040 N Scottsdale). They also had taramasalata next to it in the refrigerated case.

Re: The Rum Bar

I'm a big fan of the Breadfruit and they have a new (from the April menu change) cocktail that I'm in LOVE with. It's called the Mutiny in the County (the name is a take on Mutiny on the Bounty with Captain Bligh and his breadfruit expedition). What puts it over the top is his use of an Irish moss s...

Re: EVO Scottsdale

A couple more visits since our first one. One was after a long but fun day of website-related activities (photo shoot for an upcoming feature on rum pairings at the RumBar at the Breadfruit and a pre-interview visit with Charlie Zeiler at the Mix-Up Bar at the Royal Palms), so although we had been e...

Re: EVO Scottsdale

I finally got to EVO a few weeks ago. No secret that I'm a huge fan of Peter DeRuvo since his Prado days. Well, we had a feast! Between the 7 of us, we ordered many of the favorites mentioned here and then some: pork belly with watermelon, controne poppers, beef heart sandwich, egg raviolo, papparde...

August 5th at the Walrus & The Pearl. 3-courses for $25. Crudo + 5 oysters + poke. Only 11 seats at the raw bar. I just booked E and myself for the 8:30 ...

Mashawi Lebanese Grill

After seeing Dom's get-together post, I realized I never posted here about this Lebanese place on my side of the valley. And it's a good reminder I need to return. I first checked it out back in January. We were doing errands in that strip mall so I ran in to get a menu (at least that's what I told ...
