About the Food

Serving modern yet approachable new American cuisine with plenty of local flair, Twisted Grove Parlor + Bar is Scottsdale’s new neighborhood hangout. Brought to you by the creator of Grassroots Kitchen & Tap, Twisted Grove’s menu is best described as from-scratch modern American cuisine that’s both approachable and surprisingly affordable.  At Twisted Grove, this means sharable small plates, hearty sandwiches, farm-fresh salads, stone oven flatbreads and delicious entrées.

meet the chef


A fourth generation restaurateur, Christopher Collins was practically raised in his family’s restaurants, helping and hanging out with the line chefs (and eating extra bacon). After graduating from Boston University with a degree in hospitality management, Collins was recruited right out of school to join Hillstone Restaurant Group’s famed management program. “That was my finishing school, where I learned the restaurant business from top to bottom, food to equipment,” Collins says. “I was inspired by my experience at Hillstone, combined with my father’s hands-on approach and local focus (knowing the names of all your customers, caring about the product personally) to create Twisted Grove. It’s all about soul. A restaurant is not just a building.” Collins lives in Phoenix with his wife Melissa and their young son, Christopher “Topher” Collins Jr.
