The Larder + The Delta, a Southern-inspired food stand inside downtown Phoenix’s DeSoto Central Market, puts a modern twist on comfort food dishes like Hoppin’ John and biscuits and gravy. You won’t want to miss the Buffalo-style cauliflower, which is lightly fried in a delicious blue cheese and hot sauce blend. The crispy pig ears, dusted with Cheetos, are chewy, fatty and irresistibly good. Executive chef Stephen Jones’ fine-dining pedigree shines through in dinner plates like the KFQ, or Kentucky fried quail, a perfectly deep-fried bird served with a helping of red bean and sausage gravy and a buttery foie gras biscuit.
