Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak Scottsdale ~ Arizona Restaurant Week 2010
Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak Scottsdale – The first stop on our seven night tour of Arizona Restaurant Week 2010 was Bourbon Steak Scottsdale located within the AAA Five-Diamond Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort.
Michael Mina’s accolades are as long as both of your arms and include such prestigious awards as being a two-time James Beard Award-Winner, Chef of the Year by Bon Apetit, AAA Four-Diamond Award, and many more.
A few of Michael’s signature dishes include Whole-Fried Organic Chicken with Truffled Mac & Cheese, American Kobe Burger with Duck Fat Fries, and Maine Lobster Pot Pie.
As we were reviewing our special $39 three-course Arizona Restaurant Week 2010 menu, we were presented with a small tasting of Michael Mina’s famous fries. YUM!
We made our selections and out came this wonderful bread cooked in an iron skillet.
Because Carol and I were eating out seven nights in a row, we decided to share the many entrées we would be enjoying over the course of the next week.
To begin our journey, we selected Roasted Lobster and Corn Bisque (Tempura Corn Fritter, Spicy Braeburn Apples). Piping hot, rich, and wonderful!
Our second course was Kobe Flat Iron Steak (Bone Marrow Potatoes, Trio of Onions, Pinot Noir Reduction) Wow!
And for our final course, Macallan 18 Butterscotch Pot De Creme (Nutmeg Beignets, Toffee Float) Holy Dessert Ecstasy Batman!
Arizona Restaurant Week 2010 was a wonderful introduction to Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak Scottsdale. We hope to go back again soon to sample more of Michael’s magic and tell you about it in a more in-depth article.
