Do Weekend Brunch at Stella

January 6, 2017 11:02 am

The fall of 2016 brought a fresh new brunch option to Phoenix diners in the form of Stella, a New American eatery known for its inventive takes on culinary classics. For example, instead of humdrum French toast, its chefs craft monkey bread for brunch. The sweet starter comes drizzled with caramel, dusted with cinnamon, flecked with pecans, and smothered with mascarpone icing. When you're ready for the main course, order one of the waffle dishes, perhaps the Southern version with buttermilk-fried chicken and maple-whiskey syrup on top.

If you'd rather come to Stella for dinner, you can expect the same creative fare. Indulge in a Veggie Lover pizza slathered with creamy pesto sauce, seasonal vegetables, and mozzarella, or go toward the opposite end of the spectrum and try a pie with soppressata, calabrese, spicy Italian sausage, mozzarella cheese, and marinara. You can also opt for an artfully crafted sandwich or burger or try one of the seafood-centric entrees at Stella.
