– Old Town Scottsdale Dining – 5th & Wine –
UPDATE 4/10/2017: 5th & Wine is now closed.
While exploring Old Town Scottsdale a few weeks ago, we decided to grab a quick lunch. I had not had a chance to visit 5th & Wine yet, but had heard good things about it.
Since it was a beautiful day, we opted to sit on the back patio. However, the large, open dining area inside was also pleasant.
We ended up ordering the Cobb Salad and Tortilla Soup as our main dishes. The Cobb Salad was quite interesting and included some unique elements. Rather than using hard-boiled eggs as you would in a traditional Cobb, there are fried eggs on top, which when cut into release the yolks into the salad. It also has roasted corn and peppers to give it more of a southwestern feel. It was quite good and just what we needed. The Tortilla Soup was also a winner – flavorful and with just the right amount of spice. We also had a side of sweet potato fries that disappeared quickly.
5th and Wine’s menu has a lot of interesting, diverse items. There is a long list of starters, including ahi poke, stuffed mushrooms, meatballs, hummus and brie. Perfect for sharing… They also offer a large number of bruschettas that you can mix and match. From there, they offer salads, many sandwiches, a good selection of burgers and entrees. So, whether you are in the mood for something casual or something a little more refined, 5th and Wine has it covered. Brunch is offered on Saturdays and Sundays as well.
As the name implies, wine is a big part of the equation at 5th and Wine. They offer a large selection of wines by the glass as well as by the bottle. I look forward to returning to try some of them out.
Overall, we enjoyed our lunch at 5th and Wine and will certainly be back for more!
