For locals or out-of-towners alike, when people ask me where to go for a seriously unique experience, my list always includes Vincent’s, in one form or another. There’s the “real” restaurant (Vincent on Camelback), the Market Bistro (which is adjacent to the restaurant), or the most casual but equally delicious affair, the Camelback Market.
Why so many “Vincents?” Because it all stems from James Beard Award-Winning Chef Vincent Guerithault, who takes his French background and descent and melds it with his Southwestern home. That’s what makes his food so unique.
Anyway, we’ve written about the Market before, and all the locals know that every Saturday morning from October – May, it’s the place to be. Well in case you’ve slept in a few Saturdays, this is your reminder that the Market is going on for two more weeks, ending on May 22nd.
Remember to come hungry: about 1/4 of the Market is actual produce, but the rest is filled with pastries, and everything from paella to oven-fired pizzas made-to-order, to the most delicious roasted chicken and potatoes ever. Be sure to get in line for the crepes – savory or sweet (Grand Marnier, I’m coming for you) – and also for the mimosas – you’ll get a bottle of Champagne, and as many cups of OJ as you want.
Now that your mouth is watering, I’ll let you rally your friends to go. It goes from 9am – 1pm. Happy Brunching!
