5 Dishes to Brunch on This Fall

BY Riki Altman-Yee | November 15, 2017 | Feature Features

The rest of the country might be taking fur coats out of storage and donning woolen scarves, but here in the Valley alfresco brunch season begins.
Succulent huevos rancheros ($18) is on the new brunch menu at Toro.

1. French Toast at Virtu
Chefs start by basting thick-cut Noble Bread in brown butter; then they spoon out a heaping helping of cinnamon pears and cover the whole plate with mascarpone whipped cream and caramel toffee sauce. Perfection. 3701 N. Marshall Way, Scottsdale, 480.946.3477, virtuscottsdale.com French Toast at Virtu Chefs start by basting thick-cut Noble Bread in brown butter; then they spoon out a heaping helping of cinnamon pears and cover the whole plate with mascarpone whipped cream and caramel toffee sauce. Perfection. 3701 N. Marshall Way, Scottsdale, 480.946.3477

2. Zucchini Bread Waffle at The Gladly
Goodbye, churro waffle. Say hello to its replacement, a dish that is both sweet and savory, with crunchy pecans, Vermont maple syrup and rich whipped cream. Diners might forget they are eating a serving of vegetables. 2201 E. Camelback Road, Phoenix, 602.759.8132

3. Eggs in Purgatory at Twisted Grove
Scottsdale The name does not quite fit this heavenly creation, combining grilled cheese Reggiano, San Marzano tomatoes, short ribs and a sunny-side up egg. Dip the grilled cheese or eat each component separately—no judgment here. 8220 N. Hayden Road, Scottsdale, 480.699.0811

4. Banana Ricotta Pancakes at Hearth ’61
Sweet, silky and totally carb-o-licious, these decadent discs come with enough caramel pistachio compote—and bacon, of course—to make diners forget they had plans for the rest of the day. 5445 E. Lincoln Drive, Paradise Valley, 480.624.5400

5. Breakfast Chaufa at Toro
Even outside of Peru, having fried rice for brunch is not only acceptable—it is simply divine, especially here, where chefs mix in pork carnitas, egg, curtido kimchee and plantains. Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, 7575 E. Princess Drive, Scottsdale, 480.585.4848
