A much needed restaurant has arrived on the scene in downtown Phoenix - The Arrogant Butcher (thanks, Sam Fox). This new (and fabulous) eatery is located at CityScape, a dining, retail and entertainment complex located between Washington and Jefferson Streets and 1st Street and 1st Avenue.
Don't be fooled by the name. This place has a cool, laid back vibe, and the decor is, simply put, loads of fun! The menu is pretty great, too. I'd go back again and again just to have the House Soft Pretzels & Provolone Fondue - hello, yumminess. Although I could most definitely sustain on pretzels and cheese, I felt it best to also have an entree. I had the Sweet Potato Tortelli with Mushrooms, Brussels and Hazelnuts and l-o-v-e-d it. As a vegetarian, my options at a restaurant with the word "butcher" in its name is a little limited, but I was 110% pleased with my choice. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention dessert (yes, I had dessert, too!). I wasn't about to pass up anything called a Warm Peanut Butter Cup with Chocolate Gelato. You shouldn't either. Give this place a try. I think you'll enjoy it.
