Said to serve the best afternoon tea in the city, The Phoenician gives diners the opportunity to experience the classic English afternoon tea each day in the elegant Lobby Tea Court. Reservations are essential and the first sitting is at 2 p.m. Guests can choose a pot of tea from a long list of different herbal, white, green and black tea flavours, however, for the true English experience there are only really two choices: the English breakfast tea or the Earl Grey. The pretty china teapot and cups are presented to the table alongside a selection of finger sandwiches, pastries and scones served with Devonshire cream and a choice of fine jams. Quite possibly one of the most authentic English tea experiences in this part of the world, afternoon tea at The Phoenician is a lovely treat.
With so many great restaurants in Scottsdale, it’s pretty easy to over indulge in rich foods. The True Food Kitchen is the place to go when you’re feeling a bit under the weather and need some superfoods and natural antioxidants to perk up. Creating dishes that promote healthy living and anti-inflammatory diets that still taste absolutely amazing, the chefs at True Food Kitchen work hard on their menu to ensure that there’s a dish to excite everyone. Choose either the Tuscan kale salad with grilled steelhead salmon, lemon and parmesan or the teriyaki brown rice bowl full of Asian vegetables, sesame, avocado and a choice of steak, chicken or tofu. Pair that with a glass of medicine man juice, which includes sea buckthorn, pomegranate, blueberry, cranberry, black tea and soda, and you’ll be right as rain in no time.
