Alum of Rubicon (Exec Chef), Coyote Cafe

Menu for Today, February 22

  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.

Delicious!! Perfect meatloaf. I personally like this version better than Munchery's turkey meatloaf. Will order again and again! Portion could be slightly bigger...

Meat looked nothing like short rib. More like sliced pot roast. Definitely nothing like the picture. Three slices of beef not close to dark and carrots were the peeled snack size baby carrots from the market. Polenta was too mushroomy. Disappointing!

I liked the shrimp and the sauce it is served in. The shrimp was large and crispy and flavorful. The bread I would substitute with sour dough ACME bread and the cole slaw I would love to have double that amount. Overall very good dish.

Beef too tough to eat. No flavor. Carrots and polenta ok

Meal was terrific except that the Broccoli was well done instead of cooked 1/2 way and crunchy.

Horrible. We ordered this many times before & were happy. Meat was SO tough, we had to use a should fall apart (& has in the past). Vday gets a bad rep for sub par food, but this awful. Would love (expect?) a refund...

The carrots in the picture are NOT what we received. We got baby carrots like you buy by the bag.

This was just not very tasty nor the meat tender. Serviceable but not memorable.

There was something weird in the meatloaf that I couldn't identify. It led to bad breath and didn't taste good.

Meat was tough and missed out on mushrooms in one of the orders. Sad, was looking forward to this meal, as I love short ribs. Tasted more like tough stew meat, unfortunately.

They were hard as rocks! At one point I thought I had broken a tooth. I think I should receive a credit for the cookies.

Tomato sauce was too spicy. I wish they could put the chili flakes in a separate container.

Zero flavor. Tasteless meatballs. Sauce without any personality.

Nice concept but not as good as I had hoped. Polenta was a bit watery (would have been MUCH better with potatoes). Carrots were overcooked and were baby carrots not the ones pictured. Good in concept, Execution could have been a bit better.

I love this dish. Light, but flavorful and the perfect portion sizes for each item. Love the aioli - would eat this every week if it were available.

I don't love the big chunks of fat, but this is good enough that I'm willing to pick them out.
