Chef Scott Newman

Alum of Rubicon (Exec Chef), Coyote Cafe
(73942 Reviews)

Menu for Tomorrow, January 18

  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 BEST steak I’ve had yet from the Munch. Blue Cheese butter was a delicious complement, and green beans were crisp & sweet. 5 stars.

Polenta was extremely mushy and wet with no flavor. Meat was not tasty. We dumped this one.

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.

Whatever that red stuff was it was horrible and didn’t fit with the steak, which was good, or the potatoes which were totally bland.

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.
