North Scottsdale is booming with great new eateries and one recent addition is bringing something truly special to the line-up. Chauncey Social is equal parts swanky and comfortable and the perfect place to spend these cool spring evenings.
This new space has it all – hip, upscale vibe, innovative yet familiar bites and friendly service. You’re sure to be impressed upon walking in – we certainly were. Oversized booths and comfy chairs abound, the bar is the jewel of the space and they’re serving up some pretty fun and tasty cocktails.
I loved the Coco Chanel – a fun and light play on a pina colada. It was perfectly sweet and refreshing and the iconic logo of the drink’s namesake made out of dried pineapple slices was such a special touch.
That’s what makes Chauncey Social stand out – extra attention to details.
You’ll find those same details across the menu. Beautiful flourishes make an experience more memorable. The Kung Pao Cauliflower was a hit. The crispy cauliflower was perfectly dressed in a sticky sweet, slightly spicy sauce and gilded with micro greens for bright freshness. We also drooled over the Dumplings stuffed with 12 hour-braised short ribs and garnished with pink pickled onions, cashews, fig & chili marmalade and scallions. They were savory, sweet and just kissed with a touch of spicy heat. Delicious.
The showstopper of our meal was the Atlantic Salmon with chermoula yogurt, pearl cous cous and walnut cilantro relish. There is a lot going on in this dish and it was all delicious. The wild caught salmon was expertly cooked, moist and flavorful. The cous cous added interest and texture and chemoula was smooth and herby, complementing the fish perfectly. Every bite was a punched up with incredible flavors. This is a great dish worth the visit alone!
There is so much to love about Chauncey Social. It’s a great place for a night out with friends, date night, happy hour or just to enjoy a great meal in a cool setting.
