The Valley has plenty of joints offering familiar brunch dishes like pancakes and omelets. But the newest spot for one of our most favorite weekend indulgences has neither -- nor would you expect it to.
Crudo, chef Cullen Campbell's home of modern Italian food in Phoenix, has announced it will start serving Sunday brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. starting this Sunday, October 6.
What's Campbell got cooking? Think unexpected brunch offerings like sous vide terrine with horseradish and beets, short rib with beet hash and poached eggs, and polenta hoecakes with maple syrup.
