Lunch at Mowry & Cotton at the Phoenician in Scottsdale AZ


Mowry & Cotton is a Modern American Restaurant that recently opened in the Phoenician in Scottsdale. The name of the restaurant is suppose to be a western folklore story (that’s very unknown) about two Phoenix Settlers that opened a Fancy Saloon that was comfortable in the 1870s. I didn’t feel or see much western here but whatever this restaurant is I can tell you it’s a very nice place with an interesting menu with a lot of variety.

It was hard to decide on what to try because I was torn on many things but went with the Jidori Chicken Sandwich. My sandwich was filled with a VERY GENEROUS amount of Juicy delicious chicken breast, arugula, flavorful apple bourbon butter and trace amounts of fennel. I did request my brie cheese on the side because I hate the edible coating on brie.

The sandwich is quite large. Even half is a large portion so I did take half home. This is a delicious flavorful sandwich many because of the juicy flavorful chicken and the yummy tasty apple bourbon butter. As great as the sandwich really is I hate to be picky but I think it could use a little more fennel to be more rounded out with flavors and texture. ( I want at least a teaspoon) I only got two shreds of fennel so I can’t say I didn’t get any but I didn’t not enough fennel to make any impact. But still this was a delicious sandwich.  I loved the Mowry Pickles….They were GREAT! and a really nice touch. They were gently spiced and pickled. The pickles included blueberries, cauliflower, onion and cucumbers. It was a little dish that was really great. The salad was very simple and very plain but I ordered salad instead of the two potato options so I could have room for dessert.

My husband had the Smoked Brisket Sandwich.

The Smoked Brisket Sandwich contained house made pickles, carefully  smoked brisket, grilled Swiss Chard and Carolina Mustard. This sandwich had a lot going on and was a really delicious sandwich. My husband paid the $4.00 extra for the crispy fries. The fries were delicious and had a creamy interior but weren’t crispy. our waiter did offer to bring us a new batch of fries but we declined since the fries were delicious anyway.

Just like the lunch menu the dessert menu offered several delicious sounding desserts. We went with the Apple Crumble because the waiter made that one sound special…AND IT WAS!


It’s painted Ice Cream!

It’s Blackstrap Molasses Ice Cream with Apples and an Oat Crumble. It’s so different! It’s almost not sweet at all and very lightly spiced. It’s almost like breakfast but a lot more fun!

Not 100% perfect but very good! I do note at the time of this review this is a newly opened restaurant.

I have to say Mowry & Cotton seems to be Worth a Fork!

Worth a Fork!
