New in Scottsdale: Mabel's on Main

Chef Aaron May says he was "being cat and mouse about it," but his new gastropub Mabel's on Main opened quietly a week ago, in the Old Town Scottsdale space that used to house Mabel Murphy's (7018 E. Main).

Right now, there are a dozen "gourmet bar snacky" menu items -- braised pork belly with homemade cracklings is May's current fave.

 

He's also doing duck breast with duck confit, a house-ground beef burger with Kennebec fries, oysters Rockefeller, shrimp cocktail, and deviled eggs with caviar.

There's no lunch service, but May says he plans to eventually add Saturday and Sunday brunch.

Mabel's on Main is open from 5 p.m. until close (lately, 11 p.m.), Tuesday through Saturday.
