Happy Hour at Onyx

Upscale resorts might not be the first venue Arizona locals think of for Happy Hour deals, but Onyx at The Four Seasons Scottsdale will change that viewpoint.  Not only are some of my favorite HH dishes, like the tempura octopus and lamb meatballs, being served with a view, but they are only $5 during 5 and 6 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.  

Nick Padua, the assistant manager for Onyx and Talavera, has some new cocktails coming up. On our last visit, I was able to preview a delicious cocktail he's working on made with grapefruit and mezcal.  If that was any hint of what's to come, I can't wait to see the list.
