Elements Restaurant – The Sanctuary – Phoenix, AZ

I was supposed to have brunch with my Phoenix cousins, but a couple were ill and they had to cancel.

So I opened up Zagat.com, and looked for highly rated brunch restaurants nearby, and found Elements at the small boutique hotel called The Sanctuary, which is at Camelback Mountain.

The chef, Beau MacMillan, has competed on Iron Chef! The brunch was great. They pull back a great green curtain at 11 am to reveal a small but ample buffet. Terrific salads, incredible cheeses, charcuterie, smoked salmon, giant prawns and crab legs, and omelets cooked to order (then delivered to your table). Pretty pastries are laid out for dessert, but they also deliver a just baked cinnamon roll at the right moment. Sparkling wine comes with this brunch.

It was just right to close out my brief visit to Scottsdale.
