CityOwls: Jackie Ching Red velvet pancakes & more from The Herb Box
If you're one of the few who won't wind up with a massive hangover courtesy of New Year's Eve -- or if you're the type to be in bed before midnight regardless of the occasion -- celebrate the New Year with a delectable restaurant brunch. You can keep the party going from 2012 to 2013, or sleep in and start your year off with an ultra-relaxing meal accompanied by a refreshing cocktail.
A casual brunch will be served from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the DC Ranch location (480-289-6180) and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at SouthBridge (480-998-8358). Popular items include red velvet pancakes with Gran Marnier syrup and mascarpone crème, wild mushroom and smoked gouda omelet with crispy fried sage and wood-smoked bacon, and the Market Street BLT with fried egg, crispy pancetta, arugula, vine-ripened tomatoes, and ricotta on brioche.
Recover from the evening's festivities at Montelucia Resort & Spa. Begin at 10 a.m. with brunch at CENTRO Lounge, located off the resort's Kasbah Pool with a fabulous view of Camelback Mountain. Favorite breakfast dishes like huevos rancheros will be served, and the mimosas and Bloody Marys will be flowing all day. Afterward, visit the Joya Spa for a hangover helper massage or after-party detox wrap. Call 480-627-4304 for dining reservations.
Enjoy the lazy holiday with a brunch menu of Mexican favorites, served alongside the restaurant's regular lunch offering from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For a no-nonsense start to your day, try the breakfast torta, a garlic toasted telera roll stuffed with huevos Mexicanos, cheese, bacon, avocado, and pickled jalapenos. Or try SOL's version of French toast, soufflé Carlotta. A bread pudding spiked with Ptron Citronage and lemon zest, sautéed in butter, drizzled with organic agave syrup, and topped with mango, berries, vanilla whipped cream, almonds and powdered sugar, it's sure to be a sweet start to 2013. There are several cocktails to choose from, including mimosas, greyhounds, and the custom margarita bar. Call 480-245-6708 to reserve a table.
