Restaurant Opening | Mowry & Cotton Debuts in October and Appeals to Local Tastes

Posted on: October 5th, 2017 by Taryn Jeffries No Comments

We’re so excited about the new restaurant coming soon to The Phoenician next week. Chef Tandy Peterson and her team are set to create spot for locals, with a more comfortable and approachable space than you’re used to at a luxury hotel. Mowry & Cotton will be opening on October 13th at one of the Valley’s most iconic resorts and we’ve got a breakdown for what you can expect.

Mowry & Cotton Debuts in October and Appeals to Local Tastes

Inviting Space, Local Vibe

Mowry & Cotton is a departure from the traditional resort restaurant, while still proving the level of cuisine and service that you would expect. The bold indoor/outdoor dining space is ample enough to seat 340 and has an modernized spin on the Old West. While resort guests will certianly enjoy the space, it seems like appealing to locals was at the forefront of the design. The laid back surroundings and regional American dishes will have you coming back for more.
“It has a lively, local watering hole kind of vibe; it’s the antithesis of a stuffy sit-down,” said The Phoenician’s Director of Food & Beverage Lisa Mercer. “It’s the kind of place you come to meet your friends after work, but it’s also a great spot to come solo and connect with new faces you’ve seen around the neighborhood.”

Chef Tandy Peterson

Leading the kitchen is Chef de Cuisine Tandy Peterson, an Arizona Culinary Institute alum who honed her craft at the likes of Café Bink, Binkley’s Restaurant and Bizkaia, Spain’s Asador Etxebarri, ranked among the top 10 best restaurants in the world, before taking the reins at Mowry & Cotton. From menu creation to implementation, Chef Tandy oversees all aspects of the restaurant’s offerings, infusing her own trademark style and knowledge of international cooking techniques into the eatery’s revolving lineup of regionally inspired American fare.

What’s on the Menu at Mowry & Cotton

 If you’re looking for lighter fare, try out the temping flatbreads like their Apple Camembert, teeming over with acorn squash, sage and watercress, or try a comprehensive array of bread, soup, salad and veggie options such as BBQ Beets prepared with mustard greens, chickpea and smoked onion yogurt.

Heartier, entree choices include seafood dishes such as the Salt Spring Mussels, made with Spanish chorizo, Swiss chard and white beans, while meat options include Lamb Tacos, Bison Carpaccio and Smoked Spare Ribs, among others.
