Winter menu at Maynards features hearty ingredients & home-grown greens (PHOTOS)

Savor every bite.

Downtown restaurant Maynards Market & Kitchen launched their new winter menu last week, showcasing a combination of hearty winter ingredients along with fresh greens from their garden.

The Tucson Foodie team shared a dinner with several of the new menu options; we took all the pretty pictures we could.

Here’s a glance at the updated winter menu with photos to help you choose.

These beautifully plated Roasted Turnips ($12) are served with pistachio dukkah, dates, labneh, red-veined sorrel, and dill.

One of our favorite renditions of Foie Gras ($20) ever, this version evokes PB & J vibes with peanut butter, huckleberry jam, and the cutest little brioche.
