Special Menu, Drinks Showcase the Bounty of Arizona

Scottsdale, AZ – June 24, 2014 – Stage a foodie “staycation” this summer with Talavera restaurant and Onyx Bar & Lounge at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North.  Expanding on the “100-mile” cocktail challenge, the property is offering guests new locally-sourced food and drink choices showcasing the bounty of Arizona.

“To serve our guests the freshest summer flavors, we didn’t have to look far,” says Director of Food & Beverage Bryan Feigenbaum.  “For the past several years, we have joined forces with other Four Seasons to offer a locally-sourced summer cocktail.  This year, we decided to expand on this concept and highlight all the amazing offerings available right in our backyard.”

The Resort’s signature Talavera restaurant is offering a “Savor the AZ Summer” menu, with three courses for $48.  The menu starts with Sunizona Tomato Tartare, featuring “Gina’s” burrata cheese, haricot vert and petite greens.  The next course highlights Cedar River Short Rib Osso Bucco, with Maya’s Farm market vegetables.  Finally, dessert delivers a jolt with Scottsdale’s ‘Press’ Coffee Ice Box Cake, with chocolate praline rice and vanilla bean. Wine pairings are available from the award-winning Pillsbury Wine Company in Cochise County.  The cost for the three-course menu is $48; guests may add the two wine pairings for an additional $22.

Onyx Bar & Lounge will highlight local Arizona sangria, using wines from Arizona Stronghold in Cochise County.  Offered in both red and white varietals, the signature drink is the perfect libation to enjoy while watching the sunset from Onyx patio. Guests can select between two different pitcher options beginning at $38.  Complementing the sangria is a local Arizona charcuterie board, featuring locally produced meats and cheese, as well as olives from Queen Creek Olive Mill, available for $16.  While enjoying the local menu, stay for live music from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, and 7 to 10 p.m. on Sunday.  Happy hour also is offered every day from 4 to 6 p.m.

For reservations and additional information, please call (480) 513-5085 or visit www.talaverarestaurant.com.

Talavera introduces a modern take on the classic steakhouse, with unique steak and seafood pairings, comfort desserts, and a range of specialty sides, accompaniments and starters.  Adjacent to Talavera, Onyx Lounge receives its namesake from the amber color-ribboned onyx framing the bar. The Lounge showcases a menu of small plates and fresh, sweet and savory cocktail combinations.
