Pig & Pickle
One of the few restaurants in Scottsdale with after-midnight dining you won't regret the next morning, the Pig and Pickle is a favorite among foodies. Set in the corner of a strip mall, the restaurant has a lively bar with an admirable selection of beers and craft cocktails. The dining room has a minimal industrial vibe that suits its artisanal sensibility. Pork, of course, plays a leading role on the lunch, dinner, and late night menus. It’s served as bellies, burgers, tostadas, and buffalo shanks with blue cheese. While there are plenty of comfort food favorites—patty melts, Cuban sandwiches, shrimp po boys, and tater tots—there are also lighter bites like watermelon gazpacho and prosciutto with peaches. Menus change frequently, but by all means ask for the Elvis, a whipped peanut butter cheesecake topped with bacon strips.
