We love to try new restaurants. And lucky for us, we have some friends that share our love of good food. Mary Jo (who also introduced us to Sweet Republic and changed my life forever) heard about The Herb Box in Scottsdale and suggested we give it a try for dinner. So we tripled up with another couple (who is about to have baby #7 any second now!) and found a night in December to go on a date (Christmas miracle).
Food: Off the charts. Everything we tried was beyond delicious. We got sweet potato chips as an appetizer and I don't even like sweet potatoes that much but I loved these chips. All the girls ordered butternut squash enchiladas, which were amazing, and all the guys ordered Thai baby back ribs, which were the most tender ribs I have ever seen/tasted. And don't even get me started on the desserts we tried. S'mores creme brulee and crack pie (appropriately named because it could easily become an addiction). The desserts were both out of this world and I would go back in a heartbeat.
Atmosphere: Super cool and modern. Not too casual, not too fancy. If you go, be sure to check out the bathroom sinks.
Price: Not cheap. You're looking at about $30-$40 a person if you want the three courses. Totally worth every penny. They do have a cheaper lunch menu (that I can't wait to try) and a happy hour menu from 3pm-6pm.
