Tanzy Restaurant Offers Unique Brunch Menu and Much More by Lynette Carrington Tanzy Restaurant Offers Unique Brunch Menu and Exceptional Quality Meal Options Recently, Scottsdale.com was given the chance to check out the brunch menu at Tanzy. Renowned chef and COO of Tanzy, Sherry Yard has created a wonderfully engaging menu at Tanzy, along with master barman and sommelier, Adam Seger. As we discovered, the artisanal Italian eatery is a must-stop. The physical space is as beautiful as the food is scrumptious!On the date of our visit, the first thing that struck us is how BIG Tanzy restaurant is. Big doesn’t adequately describe it. It’s more GRAND. It’s beautiful, with soaring wavy panels lining the ceilings, a beautiful glass wine room separating the public and private dining areas and windows surrounding the entire restaurant. A beautiful orchestration of wood, glass and fun pops of color combine to create a very special place to dine or enjoy cocktails. Our “Brunch Box” experience for two kicked off with two wonderful cocktails – a mimosa and a peach bellini, and both were outstanding. Other brunch cocktails include Tanzy’s homemade sangria, Moscow mules or bloody marys. Brunch EntreesWe were pleasantly surprised to discover a generous cup full of one of the most delicious noshes in town – the crispy latke fries! These sinfully delicious little devils are like a large French fry, but are really an upscale potato pancake. Served with a side of sour cream and sweet applesauce, they are truly a tasty departure from the expected. Another delicious surprise showed up at our table in the form of smoked salmon stuffed popovers. Think of it like a cross between lox and bagels and a fluffy/airy pastry with just a smattering of cream cheese tucked inside. It’s a genius brunch item and not too filling. My main entrée was the eggs Benedict… but with a twist! This version included poached eggs, hollandaise sauce, spinach, Canadian bacon and smoked salmon, gently set atop tasty crab cakes on top of English muffins. Talk about a taste sensation! It was one of the most unique eggs Benedict versions I have ever tried and it was a clear winner! My brunch guest had a gorgonzola cheese, onion and grilled fillet omelet with a side of bacon and sourdough toast. Grilled fillet is not what you might immediately think of to add into an omelet, but it was an outstanding facet of the omelet and it was cooked to perfection. Other stand-out items on the Brunch Box menu include the French toast created with thick-sliced brioche, ricotta, candied pecans and sliced bananas (or order it up decadent style with farmers market berries and whipped mascarpone), a brunch burger, crispy chicken waffle, biscuits and gravy and more. Some of the “lavish supplements” at brunch include truffles and caviar. The Brunch Box at Tanzy is available for only $19.99 a person and includes your choice of entrée, and a beverage or cocktail. You most certainly won’t be disappointed with the unique recipes or outstanding food quality. The staff’s attention to your table is simply the icing on the proverbial cake! For $29.99, the brunch entrée comes with a quartet of drinks or cocktails. Tanzy has provided a unique brunch menu that will appeal to anyone that appreciates quality food prepared with a creative flair.What Else?Join Tanzy for dinner and you’ll find the same quality and beautiful presentations to enjoy for yourself or with friends.
