Respond to Review of True Food Kitchen

Review: True Food Kitchen is what you would expect from a Sam Fox Scottsdale restaurant. It's clean and hip. It's also exactly what you would expect from a Dr. Andy Weill place. It's healthy with local and organic as much as possible. These two have come together for a great concept. The menu isn't that large and it's not all vegetarian but it is labeled very nicely with vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options which is really handy. The portion sizes are modest which is a refreshing change from most American restaurants ginormous plates of food. This is a great place to take meat eating friends and family and introduce them to more healthy choices. For starters, the miso soup is "meatier" than the usual. It has lots of delish mushrooms and tofu. They also have a lot of different daily soups that are vegan a lot of the time, just ask! The shitake mushroom lettuce cups are amazing as well. For the main course, I like the organic tomato and olive oil pizza (no cheese). I added mushrooms and eggplant to make it a little more exciting and it was wonderful. My fave dish is the spaghetti squash casserole. Just don't be expecting spaghetti noodles because this is a type of squash. There are other main dishes that are vegan as well such as the Teriyaki Brown rice bowl with tofu that is very popular. And vegan sides are sweet potato hash and fresh roasted vegetables where none of them are cooked in butter. The only vegan desserts are the orange olivello sorbet and the organic chocolate pudding. The sorbet is not so great but the pudding is excellent. I love that you can get organic wine here as well. I only wish that they had the sulfite free wine. The best server at the Scottsdale Quarter is Rodney but they are all pretty good. The staff is friendly and attentive. All in all, a great place and I will definitely be coming back!
