The Herb Box – Now in Old Town
Here at Schmooze we are doing our happy dance because one of our favorite places to eat just got a lot closer! The folks at The Herb Box have decided to bring their own brand of goodness to Old Town Scottsdale, by opening up a new location, and we couldn’t be more excited. Located at Southbridge (7134 E. Stetson Drive) The Herb Box is now open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
For those of you who have never been to their DC Ranch location, you are in for a treat. The Herb Box specializes in some of the best appetizers, sandwiches, enchiladas and flatbreads around and puts their own unique twist on these familiar favorites. Try the Butternut Squash Corn Enchiladas with tomatillo verde fiesta salad covered in red peppers, cotija and sugared pecans, it is a personal favorite. If a sandwich is what you are in the mood for Schmooze recommends Roasted Turkey, Pear and Arugula or the Blackened Chicken Caesar Wrap. Stressful day, need a time-out, be sure to ask for the progressive wine list featuring over 40 wines by the glass to go along with your lunch.
Speaking of wine (okay so we love Happy Hour) Happy Hour is from 3 – 6 pm, Mon – Sat with $2 off appetizers, $5 glass of wine or $3 microbrews. The Happy Hour specials change daily, but your server will be delighted to give you a take-away menu so that you can plan your afternoons accordingly. Friday is a can’t miss day with $9 Sesame Seared Ahi and $6 Blackberry Mojitos. Can it get any better then this! Yes, yes it can…. Reverse Happy Hour Fri/Sat from 10 am – 12 noon. Happy, happy dance!
The Herb Box is also your destination for breakfast (served 8 -11 am), where you can have a wonderful breakfast on the front patio with a $5 Bloody Mary or Mimosa. Feeling adventurous, try a strawberry or blueberry Mimosa to go along with some Cinnamon Buckwheat Pancakes! O-tay! The Chilequiles with egg, corn tortilla and pulled pork are also high on our list of recommendations. Sunday Brunch is also served from 8 am – 3pm for the brunch crowd.
In keeping with the DC Ranch arrangement, The Herb Box also has a market that features the same menu as the regular restaurant as well as boxed lunches ready to grab and go if you find yourself in a hurry.
Can you see why we are a little excited about all The Herb Box has to offer? Okay, we won’t tell you we told you so!
