72: Short Rib Hash From Bonfire Grill and Bar
Bonfire Grill & Bar, the trendy new eatery in Scottsdale that opened in the old Furio spot in March, recently rolled out a new Saturday and Sunday brunch menu in May courtesy of Chef Matt Carter, who also created the menus at The Mission and Zinc Bistro. If you're not one for perusing pages of breakfast selections, Bonfire's your place. The brunch menu includes four items: eggs and potato cakes, a scramble with green chile and andouile sausage, French toast, and our favorite, short rib hash with buttermilk biscuits.
Alongside a small iron skillet filled with dense yet moist buttermilk biscuits, their tops tinged with brown, sits a short rib hash of perfectly prepared braised short rib, caramelized onions, and fried potatoes topped with fried eggs and drizzled in a reduced, dark Worcestershire sauce sprinkled with parsley. Combined, these ingredients make for a hearty, tasty breakfast in every forkful, the rich, flavorful short rib hash the stand out, the biscuits serving as sop-worthy goodness. And the portion size won't make you feel like taking a nap before noon.
