Phoenix New Times's Description
After years as a romantic BYOB restaurant, Scottsdale's CafÃ© Monarch has been left in the hands of Christian Lewkowicz, a former employee and fan of the last owner and chef, Christopher Van Arsdale. Lewkowicz and his team look to carry on the restaurantâs tradition of simple food done well and guests treated like family instead of customers. Though diners might be drawn by the candlelit courtyard, ivy-covered walls and bubbling fountains, they return each year to taste the daily-changing menu at Cafe Monarch, which features seasonal and local produce whenever possible.
Tips from foursquare
What we like best about Cafe Monarch is that you never know what's on the menu until you show up. You get the choice between sweet or savory.
This is the best place for a special occasion. Service is great and the food is amazing!
Best of Phoenix Winner 2011: Best Contemporary American Restaurant. Café Monarch is a one-man show that's as much an experience as it is a fine-dining restaurant.
Go with the chef's suggestions.
In a word....AMAZING!!!
