One year after Marcellino Ristorante Italiano announced it was leaving its longtime home on Northern Avenue to move to SouthBridge in Scottsdale, a new casual eatery has opened in its place.
It's called Thirteenorth Grille
, and it's owned by Chase Herrick
, who also owns Stumpy's Pizza
in the same plaza.
Executive chef Thomas Ryan's lunch and dinner menu is firmly planted in American comfort food territory, and it's affordable; there's only one item over $20.
Appetizers include crabcakes, wings, bruschetta, and seared ahi with wasabi cream. There are six different salads, as well as a build-your-own burger, a Philly cheese steak on French bread, and a veggie wrap. Main dishes run the gamut from steaks and grilled salmon to shrimp scampi tossed with linguini.
