Bourbon & Bones Chophouse & Bar’s highly anticipated second location at SanTan Village is open, serving up premium steak and seafood dishes paired with Coravin rare wines by the glass.
“We prepared for the opening of Bourbon & Bones at SanTan Village in Gilbert for more than a year, all the while recognizing that the area has a sophisticated population that has often traveled to Scottsdale for a fabulous steak and fine dining experience,” says S. Barrett Rinzler, founder of Square One Concepts and owner of Bourbon & Bones. “We’re happy to say that now they don’t need to.”

On any given day, residents and guests can order the Japanese A5-9 wagyu—a true delicacy. What’s more, Bourbon & Bones boasts a coveted Coravin wine selection, offering exclusive vintages by the glass, available to those who’d like to push this exquisite experience even further into the stratosphere.
Here, we share the recipe for the savory first round of its elegant Three-Way A5-9 Japanese wagyu appetizer. This highly sought-after course includes A5 wagyu carpaccio paired with Aubry brut, pan-seared A5 wagyu paired with Eiko Fuji Ban Ryu Honjozo sake, and grilled A5 wagyu paired with Far Niente Post & Beam cabernet sauvignon. It takes great care to create the flavorful dishes and is completely worth it. 2150 E. Williams Field Road, Gilbert, bourbonandbonesaz.com
