Menu for Today, December 8

  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 salmon was super flavorful and fresh and the potatoes were perfectly seasoned and delicious

Not for those craving a heavy, oily pasta. This one is very light, very fresh and very healthy! Not to mention delicious! It even works with Weight Watchers. I love this dish!

Delicious. Lots of big juicy shrimp with well seasoned tomato sauce. Too skimpy with the pasta.

One of your best. Flavor, portion size, and excellent quality of meat. No fat globs or gristle.

The quality of salmon being used has decreased over the past 6 months and it's obvious.

Good chicken, but barely enough sauce!

I liked the garlic with the veggies. Fish was a little fishy but if you ate it with the veg then the garlic overwhelmed that

Gave me a stomachache; possibly the chilies and peppers. Also, I don't like the fact that the following ingredients are used: Maltodextrin, Yeast Extract, and Xanthan Gum.

Overall good though I would suggest a little more pepper and basil as well as cheese.

Not enough sauce for the amount of pasta

By Linda Frasch
It was overall decent, but it really needs some greens or something to give it a little texture or freshness.

This taste good and healthy! I normally dont like kale, but this kale is quite good. My only complaint is that the portions are small.

Potion was small, there was a good amount of water in the dish after it was warmed. It lacked flavor. Add garlic bread.

Number of shrimp was sufficient but pasta was not. Overall the portion was too small . Taste was great though but it doesn't help if I have to eat something else afterwards.

The amount of pasta provided is too little. (The size of chicken is fine.) I'd rather pay more to have more pasta. It's too little to be a main course.

Chicken was very tasty. Over all a hearty and delicious meal. More pasta please!

Ok but blah - even with the additional tomato sauce I added (which it needed).

Just awful. Pasta had no salt, no taste. Not enough pasta. Just a dried out chicken breast, not enough sauce or Parmesan. Needs a salad.

By Kristine Batten
Tastes good but I felt like it was missing something. It literally had 3 ingredients. Sauce, pasta and shrimp. I think maybe I would add either a larger portion of pasta or add mushrooms to the sauce. Wasn't enough of a portion at all.
