Alum of Rubicon (Exec Chef), Coyote Cafe

Menu for Today, October 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.

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!

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.
