Chef Scott Newman

Alum of Rubicon (Exec Chef), Coyote Cafe
(73111 Reviews)

Menu for Today, August 14

  1. Background
  2. Reviews

As a young man, Scott Newman thought he wanted to be an actor, so the creative atmosphere of the professional kitchen was a perfect fit. He started his wild-ride cooking career in San Francisco working at Masa’s under Julian Serrano, and then moved to the tinsel of Los Angeles to work with Joachim Splichal at the highly acclaimed Patina. As Possonier, he honed his natural love of fish, while continuing to develop a wide-ranging repertoire of his own.

He came to San Francisco to help open Rubicon as Sous Chef and would go on to become Executive Chef.

With his family in the Southwest, Scott relocated first to Santa Fe to be the chef of the Coyote Café, and then to Arizona to be a partner in a new multi-locale restaurant group.

But the allure of opportunity in the multi-cultural Bay Area brought him back as a private chef and caterer.

The potato and green beans were very good, but the steak was not. The meat was pretty tough and the butter on top was just fine.

You can have your delivery people deliver the meal to my door and not just left in the lobby. If the delivery drivers want a tip then I expect them to work for it!! Absolutely ridiculous that I have to make an extra trip downstairs to pick it up!

Pork was fatty and this dish lacked flavor. Was one of the most disappointing meals I've had from Munchery.

Not missing, but rice portion came inside shattered plastic container, so it was unedible -- little bits of plastic were mixed with rice. I think I should get at least a partial refund.

The portion size is good. However, the “blue cheese butter” didn’t taste anything like blue cheese :( The menu description is incorrect. The main reason why I ordered this menu item was because of blue cheese, so I was a little disappointed

Was given Red chili beef short rib tacos. Not the Santa Fe Green Chili stew I was looking forward to. Y The bag had the correct order on the outside and he wrong items in the bag.

Overall, a very good and filling meal. However, give its name of Santa Fe style "chili" stew - had little natural bite to it. It was easy enough to spice up and make quite sumptuous. Pork pieces were nicely seared, then slow cooker (was fairly).

Everything tasted good but unfortunately we got a very small piece of salmon that seemed even smaller than some of the kid’s meal portion we’d gotten before.

I could not eat this steak. It was mostly gristle and even my dog had a hard time with it. It makes me want to stop my membership, Not happy!

We have ordered this in the past and, while the sauce is still good, the pork supplier has changed and we found a noticeable difference in quality since the supplier changed. Not a do-over in the future.

Allergic to bell peppers. Last time I ordered similar meal no bells. My fault for not checking, but I will say I’ve cut back orders due to increase in bell peppers used in meals.

I lived in Santa Fe for over twenty years and had lots of green chile stew at both homes and restaurants. Munchery's flavor was quite good. However, there were way too many large chunks of fat to make this dish palatable. Won't be ordering again.
