Phoenix restaurant Review

Brunch or Breakfast? You Pick!

Phoenix Restaurant ReviewOcotillo Restaurant features casual dinning.  They are located on the corner of Third Street and Flower in midtown Phoenix.  They offer both indoor and outdoor dining.  Indoor you will find a full-service bar, dining room and a communal wine events area.  Should you choose to dine outdoors, there are several unique spaces including the Chef’s Garden, Lucy’s Lawn, the Beer Garden or the Mesquite Terrace.

The cuisine at Ocotillo Restaurant focuses on New American with a touch of local Arizona influence.  Using only the freshest local and seasonal ingredients your will find once you have tried having dinner there, you will want to come back for lunch and brunch (served on Saturdays and Sundays).  We cater to your food sensitivities by offering health, gluten-free and or vegan choices.  Plus they have a great kids menu.

Ask Dave Johnson about his curated wine list and beverages then enjoy the fresh menu items from Chef Walter.  No wonder they have over seven hundred and eighty reviews with a four-star rating.

Their Happy Hour is weekdays from 4pm to 6pm.  Sit back with your favorite beverage and munch on something from their “Bites” menu.  OG Fried Chicken Chopped Salad or the grilled Chicken Shawarma look good for starters but you may be sharing so you can include Spicy Japanese Beef Curry or some Crispy Duck Wings.

Because of the size of their property, they can cater to Private Events.  One area may have a small party for a child while another area is having a wedding and reception.  Whatever the occasion, be sure to call Ocotillo Restaurant.

The Henry has two restaurants, one in Phoenix (which I am focusing on), in West Hollywood, California and opening soon in Dallas, TX.  This is the place for crave-able eats and delicious cocktails.  You can enjoy their fusion of classical and industrial influences in their open dining spaces that exude charm and energy.  You too will say they are “The Greatest Neighborhood Restaurant”.Phoenix Restaurant Review

A community conscious company, they are giving one dollar for every reservation made in September to support No Kid Hungry.

Serving lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, their menu is sure to keep you coming back for more.  No wonder there are over five hundred and twenty-three reviews with a four-star rating.

For lunch you can start with appetizers such as Short Rib Potstickers, Grilled and Chilled Shrimp, Smoked Norwegian Salmon or White Truffle Parmesan fries.  They offer salads like Asparagus Caesar, Grilled Halloumi, Chopped Chicken or the BBQ Heirloom Carrot.  You can add grilled chicken, prime skirt steak or skuna bay salmon for a little extra.

Their Sandwiches include the classic Patty Melt, All-American Burger, Roasted Turkey French Dip, Crispy Buttermilk Chicken or their Heirloom Quinoa Tacos.  If you prefer and entrée, try the Tuna Poke Bowl, Korean Prime Skirt Steak, Mediterranean Branzino or their amazing Bolognese.

To wash your food down, try their English Cucumber, Mint & Lime or Strawberry & Mandarin Soda or how about Dragon Fruit Tea with Lemon?

Located at 4455 E. Camelback Road in Phoenix, you may want to put this address in your GPS for a weekend brunch.  Try their Chicken Fried Chicken, Caramel Apple French Toast or their Huevos Rancheros to fill your tummy.  Their bakery will tease you with a Brown Butter Salted Caramel Roll or some of Nana Stoll’s Coffee Cake.

Offering Private Dining and Large Group Events, next time you have a special event, give Henry’s Restaurant a call.

Now let’s talk about a place that specializes in one of my favorite meals, breakfast!  Original Breakfast House is owned by John Stidham.  John has owned and operated a dozen restaurants in Northern California.  After thirty-five years in the business, he thought he would retire and moved to Phoenix in 2011.  Of course for some, retirement can get a little boring and John realized he missed working!  So, he sought out a closed restaurant in the front of the Rock and 32nd street.

Phoenix Restaurant ReviewCompletely remodeling the restaurant, John created a 70’s motif for a unique breakfast joint that serves American comfort food with a twist.  Imagine the flavor of Deep Fried French Toast topped with fresh fruit or paired with chicken fried chicken.  Ever tried Spam and Eggs over Cilantro Lime Rice?  Add mango salsa and a variety of fluffy omelets al served with homemade jam and locally baked breads.

John insists on using 100% Grass fed Arizona beef on their sandwiches and salads. Only the best for John’s customers, when you order orange juice it is fresh squeezed.  Coffee drinker?  Have some Costa Rican coffee and fresh house made baked goods.

John has built up his little dream into a big amazing breakfast and lunch restaurant.  There are over five hundred and eighty reviews and that has netted him four and one-half stars.
