SCOTTSDALE (Jaime's Local Love) -- Valentina Huerta and Chef Gian Franco Brugaletta are the culinary minds behind Nonna Urban Eatery in Scottsdale. During the pandemic, the restaurant was not generating enough money and people were eating in more nomadic ways -- they were ordering out and taking home. To meet that need, Huerta and Brugaletta opened their newest concept, nomada provisions, located at 3410 N. 24th Street.
It offers an ingredient-focused retail experience featuring an expansive array of exceptional quality epicurean offerings under one roof.
Menu items include:
- Dips and spreads
- Baba Ganoush
- Chicken and duck rillette
- Seasonal salads and bowls
- Variety of fresh and grilled vegetables
- Whole grains
- Hummus and vegetable wrap
- Chicken Caesar wrap
- Half roasted chicken
- Duo of pan-seared salmon
- Fresh pasta
- Beet campanelle
- Squid ink or turmeric rigatoni complemented by Nonna’s Tomato Sauce, Creamy Parmesan Sauce or Pesto.
A selection of sushi and weekly soup round out the menu.
Wine, beer, and a coffee corner are also available. People are staying at home or gathering in smaller groups more than before, so nomada provisions aims to bring novelty to our everyday culinary life.
"nomada hopes to allow consumers to explore, travel and dream through food and beverages as ingredients, in addition to creating a practical way to access fresh, carefully crafted, ready-made options for those with little time to cook. In a way, continue a primordial love affair with all things gourmet, bon viveur & bon vivant," explains their website.
Pantry items specially sourced, spices sold by weight, imported cheeses and charcuteries will allow consumers to enhance their gastronomic adventures.
