J&G Steakhouse Scottsdale by www.carlosmeliablog.comJ&G Steakhouse  |  Scottsdale, United States |  If you follow my blog, you will know by now that despite being a native Argentinean, I do not eat beef… therefore when I hear the word Steakhouse, I already feel totally out of my lead. But priorities are priorities, and when you are hosted for a formal dinner at a signature Jean-Georges Restaurant, all you do is to open your mind and get ready for a fabulous gourmet experience. So I did. !!! I drove from the Four Seasons Scottsdale all the way to The Phoenixian Hotel, to meet with my hosts at Visit Phoenix. When I arrived to the 5th floor I was amazed by the gorgeous panoramic views over Camelback Mountain, just in time to enjoy a lovely sunset at the bar, over a perfect Grey-Goose Filthy Vodka Martini with huger blue cheese stuffed olives.
J&G Steakhouse Scottsdale by www.carlosmeliablog.comBefore I go one, I would like to comment on this… What’s with US clientele and their need to have a TV Screen and sport channels, even at the most breathtaking panoramic views of sophisticated environments ? I just don’t get it. There is a place and time for everything. I know, I know…. in the end it all comes down to what makes money, and if guest come to the bad and seat down for hours to watch a game, that’s the beauty of it right!!! I guess, NOT.

J&G Steakhouse Scottsdale by www.carlosmeliablog.comAfter a few Martinis enjoying the sunset over Camelback Mountain listening to live piano and singing, we were escorted to our table. But this time the night was already falling and the room was lighting up with candles and low lights, bringing up the sophistication and intimate ambiance.
J&G Steakhouse Scottsdale by www.carlosmeliablog.comWe began our Jean-Georges culinary experience with the Raw Bar. The Chilled Shellfish Platter  1⁄2 Chilled Lobster, 2 Oysters 2 Clams, 5 Jumbo Shrimp and 4 Mussels (USD 38). Continued with (my favorites) Heirloom Tomatoes over Crispy Onions, Russian Dressing (USD 12). As my main course I chose the Parmesan Crusted Chicken Lemon-Basil Butter Artichoke (USD 24). As you can see the menu is very well priced and accessible, given the fact of being one of the top rated restaurants in Scottsdale. Of course the Chef indulged us with a degustation of desserts, which I feel too guilty to share. My visit to Scottsdale/Phoenix, was to my surprise, all about amazing restaurants, with very interesting concepts, fresh farmer produce and vegetables, fabulous food and breathtaking panoramic views.
