Gertrude’s, the highly touted full-service restaurant located just inside the Desert Botanical Garden, is now serving its new Fall menus at lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. Under the direction of Executive Chef Matthew Taylor, Gertrude’s ingredient-driven seasonal menus meld extraordinary fresh flavors with subtle Southern and local influences.
“The diversity of what we grow onsite and acquire from local purveyors this time of year always spurs creativity and energizes the culinary team,” shares Chef Taylor. New items on the menu include Roasted Golden Beets with AZ Quark and Pistachios, Cider Cured Duck Breast with Black Truffles, and Niman Ranch Ham Steak with Root Beer Red Eye Gravy. Additionally diners can enjoy lunch specials like the Smoked French Dip Sandwich with Onion Jus, variations of a BLT, and the popular Heirloom Tomato Salad that will be available for as long as Gertrude’s farmer friends can produce tomatoes.
