Big-Deal Brunches

Brunch can be quite a production around the Valley of the Sun. Some chefs use Sundays to showcase clever flavor experiments, like the Roaring Fork’s Bryan Hulihee with his candied jalapeño coleslaw, and elements’ Beau MacMillan with his zucchini five-spice French toast. Some places serve their hearty hybrid meal in the mild outdoors, like El Chorro Lodge (pictured), which has views of both Mummy and Camelback Mountains, and T. Cook’s, which feels like a hidden Mediterranean garden. Because of popularity, reservations for any Sunday brunch are recommended.
