Talavera Restaurant Review

:
About the restaurant: The views of the high Sonoran desert are breathtaking from both the patio and dining room at Talavera at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North. The interior has been freshened up and modernized, but still retains a rustic vibe.

Food & Drinks: The menu at this contemporary Spanish steakhouse engages diners with prime meat, poultry and game from boutique purveyors, plus fresh seafood and specialty dishes like a few variations of paella. Start off with Spanish meats and cheeses or tapas such as spiced lamb meatballs. There are some fun touches within the sophisticated service, such as tableside carving of the 40 oz. grass-fed beef tomahawk with smoked sea salt. Sweet endings might include cinnamon churros or coconut flan. Drinks are just as noteworthy, with an international wine list (including Arizona representation), Basque ciders and a selection of gin and tonic cocktails that incorporate ingredients like citrus marmalade, chili threads and thyme.
