Whether it’s sausage and biscuits or “eggs & gunpowder,” breakfast at the Hotel Congress is funky and fun.

This chic yet informal burger joint (the design is heavy on stainless steel and glass) serves salads (the beet variety is particularly tasty) and sandwiches, but patrons really come for the cow.

Located in North Scottsdale at the base of Pinnacle Peak, Sassi resembles a sprawling Italian villa and offers uninterrupted views of the 600-foot granite summit.

Head to The Heartline Café for pecan-crusted trout with Dijon cream sauce and Asian braised beef short ribs.

This venue closed when the resort changed to a Waldorf Astoria property.

A nostalgic assemblage of neon, 50s tunes, and American comfort food.

The artisanal, wood-fired pizzas (which come with toppings like rainbow trout and aged New York steak) strike the perfect balance between family-casual and creative cuisine.
