Tucked into a trendy strip center in Thunderbird Valley, Eloise offers classic cocktails and casual bar eats, as well as more sophisticated fare. Surprisingly, the vegan “menudont” (instead of menudo) was a hearty blend of mixed grains, onions, and hominy traditionally spiced with oregano and crushed red pepper. We also liked the Granny Smith guacamole, the slivers of green apple mixing with avocado for a wonderfully fresh taste. For dinner, try the pork belly confit topped with a Gruyère-onion cheese sauce and sided with apple sauce and currant-accented sauerkraut.
