Table Talk Restaurant Review

Rancho Pinot

Restaurant - Scottsdale

There’s a reason Chrysa and Tom Kaufman have run Rancho Pinot successfully for so long – they have the secret formula. A great space that can be for special occasions or just when you’re looking for some incredible food, attentive but not cloying service, a great wine list (one of the best in town) and the wide variety of food.

Appetizers are things you won’t find on other menus – stuffed squash blossoms, Thai grilled shrimp and squid salad. Main courses are imaginative and balanced. Nonni’s Sunday chicken is a mainstay with tender meat and toasted polenta. Fish is cooked perfectly with complementary accompaniments.

Desserts are made in-house and round out the meal. Or, try a cheese course – they always have an excellent selection.

good to know: reservations are a must on weekends

what to wear: Scottsdale casual – polo shirts/Dockers for men; chic attire for women.

must haves: grilled lamb chops with caramelized garlic, flageolet beans and preserved lemon.
