Finding a place to Celebrate our 13th wedding Anniversary with so many choices was hard. Collaborating with Fox restaurant concepts couldn’t have come at a better time as I was informed that on October 14th they opened up a new Culinary Dropout location at the scottsdale Quarter, our decision was made!
At Culinary Dropout their slogan is, “Raise your glass to friends coming together. A place where food and music are life…”. So fitting for this new location at the Quarter as soon as we walked in the atmosphere was upbeat, we could hear live music through speakers with the smells of delicious foods wafting all around, it was truly atmospheric!
Shown to our table, we caught the modern decor with moody chandelier lighting, sports tv’s & gaming tables filled with vast spaces surrounded by people. Excited to try their signature cocktails of the old Fashioned & the Paloma Spritz, we ordered & awaited our appetizers people watched & listened to the sounds of Fosterson music, a local live cover band playing popular hits from the last 2 decades. We learnt that they offer 50% off alcohol when ordering to go & we’d just missed their Happy Hour as its Monday-Friday 3pm-6pm!
Famous for their soft pretzels with provolone fondue we opted for the their Cheddar & Potato Pierogies which was highly recommended by our server. The pierogies were like hot pillows of heaven in our mouths served with crispy brussel sprouts, mustard creme fraiche & fresh herbs. See below…
In addition we ordered their hot wings which were to- die-for consisting of buffalo sauce, honey mustard seed, shaved carrots & celery which were mouth wateringly delicous.
Whilst we awaited our main course we ordered another round of signature cocktails, the husband opted for another Old Fashioned whilst I went for their Between You & Me signature cocktail which was fruity & unbelievably tasty!
They practiced social distancing with tables spread wide apart & masks policy were mandatory when walking around but free to remove when you got to your table.
For our main course we ordered their NEW menu item Detroit style pan pizza which we learnt is exclusive & only available at the Scottsdale Quarter location.
Pepperoni & Italian Detroit style pan pizza was like welcoming a friend back home, hot cheesy & so flavorful. We could really taste the tangy di napoli tomato & the melted mozzarella cheese was just sinful!
We’ll definitely be visiting again though next time for their weekend brunch which is Saturday & Sunday!
