Bo Bites – The Covenant

(Lyrics – Fiona Apple – Criminal)

I’ve been a fat fat boy
I’ve been hungry for a delectable meal
And its a bad ass world
When a man will sing a song just because he Yelps

Don’t you tell me to deny it
I’ve done drank and I want to suffer for my sins
I’ve come to you cause I need whiskey to be true
And I just don’t know where I can begin

What I need is a good menu
So I’m feelin’ for The Covenant
And I need to be refreshed
To the place I’ve Yelped with friends
Because it’s all I ever knew of food

The Covenant is a beautiful restaurant located in the busy heart of Paradise Valley.

The restaurant definitely has a classy allure with a casual ambiance. They serve up some modern American meals with a hint of some cultural punch like the Banh Mi, Poke Bowls, and Chile Rellanos. Their drink selections are fun and extensive so take your time. I’m a whiskey guy and the manager was willing to offer his suggestions and boy did he hit the spot for me! I love it spicy and he did me well.

Moving on to the food since this is a food review, we started out with some brussel sprouts and steam clams. The brussel sprouts were slightly roasted and came along with some andouille sausage. Our steam clams came on a sweet and savory white wine tomato sauce. It was so good I asked for another round of flatbread to soak up the sauce! Sweet and full of chunks of tomato; it was savory with every bite!

For my entree, I shot for the Fire Braised Short Ribs while my friend got their barramundi. She said it was well cooked and had a nice crispy skin. My short ribs were on fire; but not what you think. It’s not spicy by any means, but man it was tender to the point where I didn’t need a knife to cut through it. The farro risotto added a sweet creamy texture along with the vegetables which was cooked to perfection; not raw, but still had a fresh crisp crunch.

Overall, our service was phenomenal and attentive. The ambiance is fresh and cool; definitely need to come back for just drinks and HH. Finally, the food was popping especially to my palates! Enjoy!
