The Montauk Brings Brilliant Flavor to Scottsdale Brunch Scene
The Montauk has become one of Scottsdale’s premier places for weekend brunch since its opening in 2015. The restaurant and lounge offer an upbeat vibe for friends and family, and live music provides just the right background for a morning or afternoon of good company and drinks.
Due to the high demand for weekend brunch at the Montauk, it offers guests the option to sit on one of two front patios for drinks while waiting for a table. The Montauk has five variations on the classic mimosa: orange, grapefruit, pineapple, guava and mango ($9). The mimosa we tried was a delicious combination of orange and pineapple juice. If you’re dining with a large group, tableside mimosas are an option, too. You can choose from three different champagnes: Chandon Brut ($40), Chandon Rose ($50), or Veuve Clicuquot Brut ($100), served with three of the juices mentioned above.
The restaurant offers a variety of classic brunch favorites from avocado toast to breakfast burritos. We tried the sweet corn scramble complete with a side of crispy new potatoes and grilled bread ($9). The scramble was the perfect brunch selection. It was hearty with confit peppers and onion, Tuscan kale, Havarti cheese and of course, corn. The layers of flavors were both fulfilling and impressive.
The Montauk’s beach theme and use of outdoor spaces makes it the ideal spot for both casual and special occasions. The large indoor bar sits in the middle of the restaurant and circles around to give customers easy accessibility from the outdoor patio.
If weekend brunch isn’t your thing, the Montauk is open Monday-Friday starting at 11 a.m. They close at 10 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, 11 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, and 2 a.m. on Friday. Happy Hour lasts all day on Monday; and goes from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. During HH, enjoy discounted appetizers, $3 draft beers, $4 well cocktails and $5 glasses of house wine. The Montauk has a late-night menu as well. The menu includes savory munchies such as, haystack fries ($8), roasted garlic hummus ($8), deviled eggs ($7), and crispy rock shrimp ($11).
Phoenix’s famous springtime weather is here! What better time to head outside and enjoy a sumptuous brunch feast with friends and loved ones.
