Scottsdale -- The annual restaurant issue of Bon Appetit names Scottsdale's Hotel Valley Ho restaurants, ZuZu and Trader Vic's, to its Top Tables list. They're Arizona's only entries in this exclusive roundup featured in the September edition of the magazine. "We're honored that both of our restaurants are on Bon Appetit's list," said executive chef and food and beverage director, Charles Wiley. "Our objective has been to provide guests with two unique dining experiences at Valley Ho. At ZuZu we're recreating some of the best of American comfort food for breakfast, lunch and dinner and at Trader Vic's we offer the classic Polynesian dishes and cocktails Trader Vic's made famous."
To celebrate the cuisine of ZuZu and to recognize the bounty from ZuZu's special purveyors, Chef Wiley will host "Monday Night Chef's Table" beginning in September. The three course meals, paired with wines, offer a chance to taste -- and discuss with the chef -- the food ZuZu is fast becoming known for. Coming up on September 4: Tomato Fest. This menu honors the tomato with a starter of stewed tomatoes and dumplings, pan roasted wild striped bass with Abe Lincoln tomatoes, crisp apple wood smoked bacon and lemon mashed potatoes as an entree, and warm cherry tomato and mango crumble for dessert. The dinner is $42 per person, tax and gratuity not included. Reservations can be made by calling 480-421-7710. Other "Monday Night Chef's Table" menus offered in September include: Alaskan Halibut on the 11th , Sweet Corn on the 18th, and "Pinot Please" on the 25th. Dining reservations for Zuzu and Trader Vic's can be made at opentable.com, or by calling 480-421-7997, for ZuZu or 480-421-7799, for Trader Vic's.
