We love the Fox Restaurant Concept chain so took a trip to Scottsdale to try Culinary Dropout. The pretzels with warm fondue were to die for!!! I had a burger and my daughter had the turkey pastrami sandwich which had coleslaw on the sandwich itself. She loved it. Caution - portions are huge so share a sandwich if you get the pretzels....we couldn't finish our food. Definitely will go back. Wish we had one in Tucson.

Making our way through Fox concept restaurants. Our latest venture took us to Scottsdale. Like Arrogant Butcher, this place lacks the intimacy a couple may want, however we sat at the end of the bar and were treated as if we were the only ones there. Alexandra helped out with our choices, and each one was delicious and arrived promptly. Specialty drinks were great. We are already planning our next visit when we're in the area.
Its not a kid friendly place, but there are items on the menu that are perfectly suitable for your little rugrat. A tad pricey but worth it. A city atmosphere, yet cozy. Unique appetizers and desserts, and all exceptional! Simple food, gourmet level.

Enjoyed some delicious drinks on the patio bar. We weren't staying for food here, but everything that went passed us looked & smelled incredible.

On a recent trip to Las Vegas, I found there was a Culinary Dropout at Hard Rock. I suggested this for a group of work friends & as I imagined, the food was delicious!

Started with some thinly sliced salumi, grilled asparagus, almonds, and several types of cheese that I can't pronounce but were very good. Had the bread with olive oil that was to die for, then moved on to some comfort food, hubby had the Beef Stroganoff and I had the Corn Cannelloni, both were excellent choices. Had a couple of glasses of white wine, hubby had coffee and we finished the meal with the Apple Monkey Bread, which was so delicious! Instead of giving a pager when you are waiting for a table, they just text your cell phone, so you can walk around and shop while you are waiting. The only drawback was that it's VERY dark inside, had to get my camera flashlight going to even read the menu. Not enough to deter me from coming back though, will just try to get there earlier in the evening. Our waitress Katy was excellent as well, will definitely be coming back.

Wonderful preztels and cheese, antipasta, fried chicken. In a very nice area with indoor and outside dining. Owned by Fox Restaurant Concepts which is the same owners as True Food Kitchen and Olive & Ivy Restaurants. You have to ask for the happy hour menu which has a pretty good discount on some of the menu items.
