Why Citizen Public House Should Earn a Spot on Your Scottsdale Itinerary
Whet your appetite with new spins on pub grub classics, such as bacon fat heirloom popcorn, Kilt Lifter fondue (made with the famous hallmark craft beer from local brewery Four Peaks), and rosemary roasted nuts. For an appetizer, choose from the likes of pork belly pastrami, Chilean crab cakes, noble bread with bone marrow butter and sundried tomato tapenade, yellowfin crudo, and salads made from locally-sourced field greens with goat cheese.
The menu has even heartier options as you inch closer to the entrees, including the Gio Osso burger, which is topped with truffled pecorino romano, an onion marmalade, and foie gras aioli. For another treat, try the filet mignon asada tacos with Oaxacan chile salsa and cotija cheese.
Citizen Public House’s main courses include the likes of Ling cod, roasted chicken with truffle and saffron risotto, short ribs rubbed with a local fair trade coffee and served with a dreid cherry barbeque sauce, pan-seared scallops with Hampshire bacon lardon, and a tender belly pork goulash with fingerling potatoes and sauerkraut.
Finish off your meal with desserts like the peanut butter push pop, the peach blackberry galette, a seasonal sorbet or ice cream, the cake of the day, or the Black & Tan, wich includes a salted caramel pudding with roasted white chocolate streusel and chocolate pot de crème.
