Amuse Bouche Gourmet Bistro & Catering

17058 W. Bell Road Surprise, AZ 85388 | Surprise | 623-322-8881

Location Description:

Call it a stroke of culinary good luck that French-trained chefs Snir and Kiersten Mor landed in Surprise, an exurb of Phoenix hammered by chain restaurants, to open Amuse Bouche, their BYOB country-French bistro. Open for lunch, dinner, and offering one of the best Sunday breakfasts in the Valley, the tiny eatery features short and carefully crafted menus that change with the seasons. Be on the lookout for exquisite quiche Lorraine, a mouthwateringly moist Berkshire pork chop, heady cioppino, and noteable desserts like an intensely rich dark chocolate pot de crème and a shareable hunk of spongy bread pudding drizzled in a woozy homemade caramel sauce.
