Carcara is the newest addition to the bustling culinary scene in Downtown Phoenix, serving a Sonoran-inspired menu with locally-sourced ingredients in a lush and vibrant setting.

Situated within the newly reimagined Sheraton Phoenix Downtown, upon walking into Carcara you feel transported to a destination outside the busy Downtown Phoenix atmosphere, with lush greenery and warm earth tones along with an expansive 14-ft. tree in the center of the dining room with glass and metal lanterns hanging within the branches. The inside flows seamlessly onto the patio where Cara Cara orange trees line the perimeter––the inspiration and namesake for the restaurant. There are also several private dining space options that are beautifully designed.

The bar is situated in the middle of the restaurant where cocktails with a heavy citrus influence, hand-crafted syrups and fresh, seasonal flavors are mixed up. The cocktail menu features drinks all named after popular local hiking trails, like Cathedral Rock made with Cruzan Rum, Del Maguey Mezcal, Blue Curacao, chipotle-pineapple syrup, lime and pineapple. They also serve beer from local breweries and a variety of wines.

Led by Executive Chef Chaz Frankenfield, the Carcara menu was inspired by the five C’s of Arizona: cattle, citrus, copper, cotton and climate. Carcara’s menu changes seasonally and utilizes locally-sourced ingredients, influenced by the rich traditions of the Southwest, including Native American and Sonoran-inspired dishes. A must-try appetizer is the candied prickly pear ribs served with jalapeño slaw. For entrees, the 12-hour braised beef short rib with street corn risotto and the pan-seared sea scallops with prosciutto and Ramona Farms corn polenta are standout dishes.

For dessert, there are six options to choose from, including blood orange brulee and chocolate dream, which is a gluten-free sponge cake with milk and white chocolate mousse and a dark chocolate ganache. There are several dessert cocktails and wines to choose from as well.

Carcara is located on the Southeast corner of Sheraton Phoenix Downtown, accessible through the ground floor lobby of the hotel as well as the 3rd Street entrance. The restaurant is open Tuesday through Thursday from 3 to 9:30 p.m. on weeknights and 10 p.m. on weekends for dinner and cocktails. Happy hour is 3 to 6 p.m.

Idaho burger joint, Sid’s Garage, to open first Arizona location in Phoenix

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - For those familiar with the northwestern state’s beloved burger concept, Sid’s Garage is putting the proverbial pedal to the metal with its Arizona debut at Desert Ridge Marketplace in Phoenix later this month. The burger joint, known for its high-energy rock ‘n roll vibes, is bringing its creative and beasty burgers, award-winning cocktails, and thoroughly crafted colossal shakes to Arizona for its first location outside of Idaho with a grand opening on May 15th.

The Sid’s Garage motto is “leave boring at the door,” and is used to describe the experience people can expect at the eatery. Gear up for an industrial/steampunk interior vibe, with gaming options, private dining, and a large patio. Aside from the party rock atmosphere, the sizeable burgers and tantalizing menu options should be eye-catching enough to lure in those rumbling bellies!

Grab some napkins or roll up your sleeves, because Sid’s Garage burgers mean business. For example, the Boss Hog Burger consists of a half-pound Wagyu and Black Angus Snake River Farm beef patty, 48-hour roasted pork belly, onion rings, and a scratch-made sriracha-bourbon sauce. Good luck tackling that beast! And who doesn’t love a good presentation? Sid’s version of Bacon and Eggs features four pieces of candied bacon suspended above two flash-fried deviled eggs with a honey mustard dipping reduction sauce. There’s also the Nashville Hot Chicken, the Godzilla, Jekyll & Hyde, and Maui Wowie burgers to name a few more! Other notable food items include the crispy tots (pictured above on the right with the fried egg addition), tempura green beans, and loco fries.

Now let’s talk shakes! These massive and colorful drinks certainly have that ‘pop’ factor, and there’s plenty of decadent flavor creativity to choose from. Some cult classics among the Sid’s Garage following are the Velvet Revolver (booze-infused), which includes vodka, tyku, line, muddled cucumber, and sriracha. Another is the 420 Shake, which has crumbled Oreo, vanilla ice cream with a buttercream rimmed glass, and a huge dark chocolate ice cream sandwich. Sid’s Garage enthusiasts also rave over the Fat Elvis, a shake that has a peanut butter rim, includes raspberry jam, vanilla bean ice cream, crunch berries, and a full-size strawberry shortcake bar!

The north Phoenix location can be found just north of the Loop 101 and east of Tatum Boulevard in the Desert Ridge Marketplace, next to Yard House and the AMC movie theaters. This will be the burger joint’s third location, owned and managed by Will and Nicole Primavera. The restaurant will be open Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m, and will be open on Friday/Saturday from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. For more information on Sid’s Garage, click here.

Elevated Seltzer: new taproom opens in Phoenix

PHOENIX, AZ — A family-owned business from Colorado is tapping into the Valley with a hard-seltzer taproom! That’s right, Elevated Seltzer just opened and is ready serve-up new drinks and meals near 7th Street and Bethany Home Road.“It’s a taproom, but it does have a restaurant,” said Warren Wood, Founder & CMO of Elevated Seltzer, in an interview with ABC15. “The restaurant is a big part of it, we have an executive chef,...

PHOENIX, AZ — A family-owned business from Colorado is tapping into the Valley with a hard-seltzer taproom! That’s right, Elevated Seltzer just opened and is ready serve-up new drinks and meals near 7th Street and Bethany Home Road.

“It’s a taproom, but it does have a restaurant,” said Warren Wood, Founder & CMO of Elevated Seltzer, in an interview with ABC15. “The restaurant is a big part of it, we have an executive chef, Luis Gomez… he really took his history of everywhere he’s lived, everywhere he’s been and he put it in this menu where we have food from all across the word. He’s got dishes that feature [even] Brazilian cuisine.”

THE SELTZERSAccording to Wood, all the seltzers at Elevated Seltzer are gluten free, 100% natural, GMO free, contain zero sugars and zero carbs.

“We have truly made something unique…every one of our cocktails that we have, uses one of our hard seltzers,” said Warren Wood. “You can still get a Jack & Coke — if you want, we’re not going to detour you from that — but we have about 15 different signature cocktails that each one uses hard seltzer.”

FAMILY BUSINESS WITH A DIFFERENT ALCOHOL

Safe to say that the craft-beer business runs in the Wood family. According to Warren, his parents embarked into this industry with a brewery in Colorado back in 2002.

“We’ve been doing this stuff since we were kids. When I was 12 and he was 7 [years-old], that was our first exposure to the industry — we didn’t drink of course — but from doing everything with our parents that’s where we go all of our experience from,” said Warren Wood.

As the brothers got older, they both realized that the craft-beer market in Colorado “was very saturated”, so they decided to go into a different route — the Seltzer concept.

“By switching to hard seltzer, we can have a lot of fun with the brand, we can have a lot of fun making this stuff… we can really bring a craft aspect into the hard-seltzer market”, said Wood. “'We were like hey, this is our time to really make an impact on something and have a lot of fun while doing it,'” he added.

The Woods opened their first Elevated Seltzer in Colorado and their second location just opened in Arizona.

PHOENIX — If you’re looking for a way to get the most bang for your buck when buying fresh and nutritious produce, you’re going to want to check out your local Produce on Wheels Without Waste (POWWOW) event; here you can get up to 70 pounds of fresh produce for a required $15 contribution.

These alternate food markets are hosted Saturday mornings across the Valley from November through June.

HOW IS THIS POSSIBLEProduce on Wheels With-Out Waste” is a program of Borderlands Produce Rescue which is a nonprofit organization based in Nogales, Arizona.

According to Yolanda Soto, CEO of Borderlands Food Bank, the produce at these markets was “rescued” from a distribution warehouse in southern Arizona.

“Naturally it’s a consumer-driven market, so maybe the month of May, consumers don’t want eggplant. There’s all this eggplant that’s sitting that wasn’t sold, so we rescue [the produce] from the distribution warehouse,” said Soto in an interview with ABC15.

According to Soto, the food bank rescues between 20 and 40 million pounds of fresh produce per year.

“In the 28 years that we’ve been around, we have rescued about 750 million pounds of produce,” Soto added, stating that the food doesn't end up in a landfill but instead with families across the state.

WHAT’S THE CATCH?According to Soto, the catch is that Arizonans are being educated to curb food waste and eat nutritiously.

“Naturally people think 70 pounds, that’s way too much for me… but that’s what we’re trying to do, pay it forward — meet your neighbor that you’ve never met by taking a batch of tomatoes. So many different ways of helping others,” said Soto.

IF YOU GOAnyone can attend these events, the only thing required is a $15 donation.

“They just pull up, we load the produce in their car, and they head on out, and people seem to love that,” said Luke Hennings, pastor at St. Lukes's Lutheran, at a POWWOW event in Mesa.

PHOENIX — A pile of burned railroad ties still smolders Thursday morning after a large fire broke out at a railway in Phoenix overnight.

Firefighters were dispatched to Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday after reports of an unknown fire, officials said.

Crews found a large pile of railroad ties engulfed in flames when they arrived on the scene. The fire was designated a first-alarm blaze and crews switched to a defensive strategy.

Crews fought the flames near 21st Avenue and McDowell Road as the fire and smoke were visible from the nearby Interstate 10. The fire even caused a brief closure of I-10 as crews got the fire under control.

The scene also turned into a hazmat incident due to the unknown material in the rail cars next to the fire.

Officials said the fire was controlled about two hours after the initial call. There are no reported injuries during the fire and The Phoenix Fire Investigation Task Force is on the scene to determine a cause.

The Arizona Fire & Medical Authority has released tips on how to prevent fires from starting in your home.

“More than 4,000 Americans die each year in fires and approximately 25,000 are injured,” the authority said on its website. “An overwhelming number of fires occur in the home.”

First off, the authority says that every house needs to have at least one working smoke alarm. Every level of the home and every sleeping area should have a working smoke alarm inside of it to offer the best protection.

Appliances should also be used in a way that manufacturers recommend, since overheating, shorts and sparks can all lead to a fire breaking out.

Lastly, families should have an escape plan from every room of the house.

“Caution everyone to stay low to the floor when escaping from fire and never to open doors that are hot,” the authority said. “Select a location where everyone can meet after escaping the house. Get out then call for help.”

The authority offers free home safety inspections. Schedule one with them by calling 623-544-5400.
