The three H's: Happy Hour at the Herb Box
I can't remember whether I read it here or somewhere else that the Herb Box in Scottsdale, by the waterfront, very nicely has half-price small plates at happy hour, so gave it a try a few days ago. Luckily it starts late afternoon, and, with neither of us drinking, we ordered the combination platter of olives-hummus-tzatziki ($6) and jerk pork sliders ($10). I was apprehensive that the portions would be stingy, but they weren't at all. The platter was generous scoops, and the balance of mild and salty was perfect; the sliders were highly flavored and very satisfying. And we were out on the patio, overlooking the water, watching a cottontail rabbit in the shurbs, and it was altogether lovely. They also have things like duck crepes, short rib tacos, and fried olives.
