The Herb Box – Convergence of FlavorsDishes highlight out-of-the-box combinations of taste and nutrition
Founded by catering guru Susan Smederovac-Wilcox in 1995 as a catering company, The Herb Box filled a niche in its original location in central Scottsdale that quickly became all the rage. This eatery has evolved to include restaurant and market as well as catering. With innovative menus and now spirits and other libations, The Herb Box is known for a great neighborhood urban experience that is second to none.
Patio seating affords a great view for people-watching at the bustling Waterfront/South Bridge convergence point — and is a great vantage to enjoy Scottsdale Public Art’s special event Canal Convergence this month (see the article here). But the truest reason for going is clearly the food. Do not miss the great starters. Order a few. The Kale, Corn and Sweet Onion Pakora with serrano glaze and vegan yellow pepper aioli will be the first to go at the table. Its crisp and crunchy texture is surprisingly light and so flavorful. Another favorite is the Korean Fried Cauliflower, which is crisp cauliflower over quinoa and a Korean hot pepper sauce topped with sesame, sugar snap peas and pea shoots — perhaps one of the best dishes in the Valley. Other incredible individual dishes include the Butternut Squash and Corn Enchiladas with kale ensalada, organic arugula, baby kale, avocado, edamame, sweet dried corn, pickled red onion and candied pepitas topped with queso. A more traditional meal may include the Char-Grilled Kobe Burger with bacon, brie, apple-jicama-watercress slaw, smashed fingerlings, crisp-fried sage and smoky blue cheese.
The food and drinks are made with mind-boggling combinations of quality ingredients, and each is more flavorful than the last.
Sit and relax and enjoy the impeccable service. Or … The Herb Box restaurant here in Old Town Scottsdale is the only one of its three locations with a market, offering more options for those who live in our vicinity.
