Chef Aaron May Leads Renegade Tap and Kitchen

Just off the heels of the new restaurant hit, Praying Monk, in downtown Scottsdale, Chef Aaron May ventures once again to North Scottsdale to develop food and drink offerings at Renegade Tap and Kitchen, formerly Renegade Canteen, at 9400 E. Shea Boulevard, just off the 101.

The Renegade team welcomes Chef May known for Scottsdale’s Mabel’s on Main; as well as Over Easy; May’s Counter in Tucson, and others.

Indeed, the beautiful eatery is open daily at 4pm, offers Happy Hour every day until 6:30pm, and began offering lunch Oct. 1. Renegade Tap and Kitchen reopened Aug. 9 with May’s own stamp on the food and bar menu, as well as an expanded lounge, music on Saturday nights, and the addition of 10 TVs for fans to catch virtually any sporting event imaginable.
Most important, foodies who follow May can catch his inspired culinary creations such as:

  • the favorite Green Chili Pork Stew
  • a butter-poached Lobster Pasta on tagliatelle, bacon, English peas and lemon cream
  • Roasted & Smoked Half Chicken, with Chef May’s signature peanut slaw
  • a Center-Cut Pork chop with fingerling potato confit mustard jus and mesculin greens
  • Crispy Salmon, with roasted beets, asparagus, wilted arugula and broken lemon vinaigrette

May’s restaurants continually receive attention from national media including Food & Wine, Condé Nast Traveler, Food Network’sDiners, Drive-ins and Dives, and The Learning Channel’s Best Food Ever.

In 2010, May was inducted into the Arizona Culinary Hall of Fame as “Chef Extraordinaire.” Renegade Tap and Kitchen is serving dinner Sunday through Thursday from 4-10pm; and Friday & Saturday, 4 to 11pm.

Keeping up with a neighborhood that counts on the best, Renegade Tap and Kitchen offers a noteworthy Happy Hour scene with signature cocktails and margaritas and a large wine list for $6 or less.

Renegade Tap and Kitchen is conveniently off the 101 and Shea, at 9343 E. Shea Blvd. in the “9400” center. For the complete menu and the latest specials, please visit
