A hip new breakfast joint in Sunnyslope's Moon Valley happened to score one of the Valley's most cutting-edge chefs to helm its kitchen.
The restaurant's called Scramble, and it opened its doors in the former Le Peep space on February 9. And I'd say that with chef German Sega's fine dining background -- which includes stints at Sea Saw, Luc's, and Roka Akor -- the food has got to be really damn good. (Just a guess, of course.)
Dennis Alexander, who also owns Half Moon Sports Grill and co-owns Scramble with Don Talbot and Clay Moizo, says the space has been completely renovated, and seats 150 between the dining room and the spacious patio. Designer Kim Harris, who created the sleek interior of The Vig and oversaw the redesign of Axis-Radius, gave the restaurant a European modern feel, with a white and citrus color scheme, bamboo floors, and wenge wood and stainless steel accents.
Alexander says Scramble is a "quick casual concept," so you order at the counter and a server brings out your meal. The menu, created by Jeff Hulscher, Half Moon's executive chef, includes a Santa Fe eggs benedict with jalapeno cornbread, blackened ham, and chipotle hollendaise; pigs in a blanket; caramelized banana pancakes; and four different signature breakfast pizzas, called "brizzas."
