Razz's Restaurant & Bar

10315 N. Scottsdale Road Scottsdale, AZ 85258 | North Scottsdale | 480-905-1308

Location Description:

This Scottsdale restaurant boasts a truly international menu. Chef Erasmo “Razz” Kamnitzer is a native of Venezuela, attended school in Switzerland, and then studied at New York’s Culinary Institute of America. He has been featured on numerous TV shows, and the restaurant has earned national acclaim from Esquire and Gourmet Magazine. Local influence can be seen in the duck cake appetizer served with nopalito cactus sauce, and Asian cuisine appears as the bah mie goreng, spicy Indonesian-style buckwheat noodles with shrimp, pork, and chicken. Some selections are also eclectic, like veal sweetbreads en croute with truffle red wine sauce and rhubarb compote. Dinner entrées are as varied as twice-roasted duck breast with lingonberry sauce, cashew nut crusted salmon with tropical fruit relish and garlic sauce, and pork tenderloin schnitzel with candied red cabbage. Razz’s Restaurant & Bar also has available a large selection of fine red and white wines, but that’s not why we recommend grabbing a seat at the bar. From there, you’ll have a full view into the bustling kitchen.
