Grayhawk Golf Club expended its food and beverage options to include Isabella’s Kitchen, which opened for business on Thursday, October 11, 2012. Located in North Scottsdale across the street from the main entrance of Grayhawk Golf Club, Isabella’s Kitchen features handmade, homemade pizzas, pastas, salads, sandwiches, bruschetta, antipasti and much more—using fresh and seasonal ingredients. The appeal of the rustic, peasant-style cuisine rests on simple recipes and presentations allowing the fresh ingredients to take center stage. And the wine menu is populated with a variety of California and Italian selections.
“We’re delighted with the response from the patrons,” said Chef Logan Stephenson. “The food we serve covers the Italian favorites that most of us grew up with, and then we take it up a notch by preparing these classics by hand, homemade with fresh ingredients.”
Styled after an Italian country bistro with an artisan’s edge, this vine-covered, 4,400-sq-ft roadside retreat houses several distinct indoor and outdoor seating options ranging from the traditional four-top to the unique fireside picnic tables on the Backyard Patio overlooking Grayhawk’s Talon course and the Valley below. The interior features a colorful, eclectic and electric blend of old and new with comfortable furnishings, numerous TVs, wood floors, wine barrels and rusted-steel accents. Isabella’s comfortable atmosphere welcomes diners to relax and stay for awhile. Dress code is casual with an average entrée price of $14. Take out is welcome.
“We equipped Isabella’s Kitchen with a few interesting features that appeal to a variety of diners,” said Brian Bevard, Director of Operations for Grayhawk Golf Club. “The gigantic garage doors and ample patio space provides a seamless transition to the outdoors. We have comfortable seating for those who’d like to hang out and enjoy the views of the surrounding desert and the Talon course. We have a Rooftop Patio with 360 degree views. It’s much more than just an eat-and-run-type place.”
“As everyone knows, the golf business has changed dramatically in the past several years and here at Grayhawk we are continually enhancing and repositioning our brand moving forward,” said Gregg Tryhus, developer of Grayhawk . “We think Isabella’s will be a fantastic addition to everything we have to offer not just to our guests, but the community as a whole. We’re very excited.”
