Wild Garlic Grill Restaurant Review

: Chef Steven Schultz has long been a fixture on Tucson’s culinary scene. In that time and in various iterations, he has gained devotees who follow him wherever he hangs his toque. These days, it resides in the kitchen of a former drive-in. And while the outside resembles the original venue, inside Schultz is putting out American plates, many of which make good use of wild garlic (actually, a lot of it is from Gilroy, California). A prime example is the garlic grilled shrimp: tender shrimp with a light char, mixed vegetables, sweet corn relish and a dab of Brie set in a beurre blanc. The Gilroy garlic Swiss fondue is a good plate to share. As far as entrées go, we suggest the linguine Bolognese, and you’ll always find a list of evening specials created by the clever mind of Schultz. Like the food menu, the wine list is California-influenced, French-accented and reasonably priced. Desserts make the most of seasonal ingredients.
