5/5: Nourish opens in Scottsdale with healthy dishes
May 5, 2010
Eating in Scottsdale is about to get a whole lot more healthful.
That's because on Wednesday, May 5, Nourish will open its doors, emphasizing what owner Kirsten Carey calls "comfort food with a healthful twist."
Whatever your healthful-eating concerns, Carey and chef Dan Santos are aiming to address them. All dishes fall into at least one of the following categories: gluten-free, lactose-free, vegetarian or vegan.
Look for appetizers like lemon artichoke hummus ($4), chipotle avocado soup ($4) and sweet potato "fries" ($4) that are crisped up by hot air, not oil. Main dishes include a sweet potato and chick pea burger ($9.50), eggplant parmesan ($10.95), raspberry apple pork tenderloin ($12.95) and a meatball and cheese sandwich ($9.50)
As a reward for your healthful eating, you can finish up with a homemade ice cream that's gluten-free and lactose free ($5), a gluten-free chocolate brownie torte ($5) or spiced ginger cupcake with cream cheese frosting ($5).
Nourish not only wants to feed you - it wants to be your hangout. It's got a full bar, and an internet lounge with plenty of outlets and free wi-fi.
