Stealthy Table Unveils Debut Menu

The James Bond theme song is playing in my head as I type this.

I just got a look at the complete menu for Stealthy Table's inaugural covert dining event -- "My Bloody Valentine," scheduled for V-Day, of course -- and it's looking mighty fine. Pork belly? Cocoa nib-crusted short rib? Meatballs? Chocolate macaron filled with cherry and black pepper ice cream? And Cartel Coffee? These people can ring my bell.

"These people" are chefs Cullen Campbell, Brandon Crouser, Tracy Dempsey, and Lisa Giungo, a.k.a. the culinary team at Crudo, the inventive new restaurant in Old Town Scottsdale. Each Stealthy Table event will feature different chefs. And the stealth factor comes in the form of the mystery locale, which won't be revealed until the day before. 

The cost is $100 a head, and the seating is limited to 50 people. Read on for the full rundown of the night's offerings:
