Arizona: Cowboy Ciao

Lately I have been spending a lot of time in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area of Arizona and, as such, sampling Bloody Marys along the way.

My first stop on a recent trip was Cowboy Ciao, a restaurant that features “Modern American food with global influences.” According to its website, “Bold flavors are balanced to pair with our 1800 (and counting) wine selections offered by the glass, bottle and tasting flight. restaurant in downtown Scottsdale.”

That being said, I should have known better than to order the Bloody Mary. Read on.

I happened upon Cowboy Ciao after multiple recommendations from friends familiar with the area. I was told repeatedly that I had to try the Chopped Salad.

I arrived on a Friday evening with a group of friends. We immediately decided to order a wide variety of menu items and share among the group–but that we each had to try our own Chopped Salad.

The salad, and every single menu item we sampled, was amazing as promised.

The Bloody Mary? Eh. Not so much. I definitely recommend you visit Cowboy Ciao if you’re in the area (and that you get the salad so you can try it for yourself!),  but I’d stick to wine next time around (their phone number is 480-WINE-111 for pete’s sake!)

Here are the stats:

Mix: Pretty plain.

Chaser:  None offered.

Fixin’s: Lime.
