Mosaic

Global Flavors in an Artistic,

Sophisticated Dining Atmosphere

As you enter  Mosaic, the unique dining experience that awaits you is foreshadowed in the attention to detail.  From the striking doors to the specially commissioned mosaic artwork on the floor, you realize that care has been paid to surround you with beauty and comfort.  The ambience you encounter throughout the rest of the restaurant speaks to the sophisticated yet casual lifestyle of 21st Century Arizona.
     Chef/Owner Deborah Knight understands the many components of fine dining that are necessary to create a memorable experience for her guests.  The synergy of gourmet food and fine wine, a quiet, comfortable atmosphere and a professional and personable staff are all equally vital to her guests' enjoyment.  Drawing upon that concept and her love of the arts she decided upon the name Mosaic.  As each piece of the mosaic contributes to the overall beauty of the artwork, so all the components of the dining experience at Mosaic form a truly memorable evening. Mosaic is a proud supporter of the ideas and beliefs of the Slow Food movement. For more information, check out their website www.slowfoodusa.org.

The Food
     Mosaic has an adventurous menu that is constantly being updated with the freshest of seasonal ingredients.  Chef Knight combines ingredients and techniques from many of the world's greatest cuisines to create her own eclectic style.  All of the food served at Mosaic is prepared on premise, from our sauces to our sorbets and ice creams.  The complexity and ingenuity of her cuisine will delight the serious diner.
     Having trouble narrowing down your choices? We offer three five-course tasting menus nightly in addition to our a la carte menu: Vegetarian,  Ocean and Mosaic tasting.  Each tasting allows the diner to enjoy smaller plates of items from that evenings' menu. All of the tasting menus are available paired with wines selected by our sommeliers for a truly inspiring dinner.

The Wine
      Mosaic is proud to offer an outstanding selection of wines from around the globe. General Manager/Wine Director Matt Rinn has selected more than seven hundred different bottlings-including multiple vintages from some wineries- to complement Mosaic’s cuisine. The wines are carefully chosen to satisfy the desires of the wine connoisseur and novice alike. Many unique and limited-release wines rest comfortably next to familiar labels from respected wineries. Quality is the shared theme in all of our offerings, in a wide range of prices and styles. Allow Matt to pair the perfect accompaniment to your dinner.

The Staff
    
Chef Knight is proud that her staff shares the same commitment to excellence in fine dining that she does.  A talented team of individuals prepares her menu each evening with precision and flair.  Their passion for the culinary arts is evident on every plate that emerges from the kitchen.  Our service staff is professional and personable, fully trained to provide you with an exceptional dining experience.  Fine dining without the formality, a casual elegance that you have been searching for in Arizona.

The Building
    
Nestled in a small corner of the Sonoran desert, Mosaic is an oasis from the everyday meal.  An elegant, understated structure that is comfortable and modern, Mosaic offers intimate dining with views of the Sonoran desert and Pinnacle Peak Mountain.  Small dining rooms welcome you, each with their own particular ambiance, creating a quiet atmosphere where the conversation heard is your own, not the tables next to you.  These rooms are perfect for private parties and corporate dinners.  Relax into an Arizona evening on our lounge patio or enjoy your meal "al fresco" on our dining patio.  Our entire building, including the patios, is smoke-free to fully enjoy our food and wine selections.
     Artists display their works throughout the building on a rotating basis, allowing a visual treat to complement the culinary treats on the table.  Our wine storage is both attractive and functional, allowing us to create a stunning wall of wine shared by two of our rooms.  Mosaic provides the setting to satisfy all your senses.
