Cask 63 - Closed

8877 N. Scottsdale Rd.
Scottsdale, AZ 85258
The latest fine-dining addition to the Scottsdale scene is sleek and attractive, with a bustling dining room done up in a cool slate blue, gray, and beige color palette. Top-notch servers and a notable wine list are the highlights at Cask 63. The contemporary American menu features steak, chicken, and numerous seafood dishes, including the excellent Crab Cake 3 Ways (traditional Maryland-style, corn-wrapped, and Southwestern fritter). Also worth your while is the delicious spinach salad, with poached egg and bacon balsamic dressing. Some of Cask 63's entrees failed to hit their mark when it comes to the "wow" factor, but a tasty pork tenderloin ($19) and rainbow trout ($18) were satisfying nonetheless. Diver scallops, lobster pot pie, and rack of Australian lamb represent some of the more intriguing standouts on the well-rounded menu. It's difficult to consider Cask 63 a must-try in an area with so many notable restaurants, but most diners looking for a nice night out -— without breaking the bank — will not be disappointed with this lively eatery.
