Three words: macaroni ‘n’ cheese. This best-seller is baked like a casserole and tricked up with a bit of onion and green chile beneath its thick, gooey crust. It’s a fitting dish for the urban cool cottage-like environment of The Main Ingredient Ale House and Café, alongside overstuffed griddled cheese sandwiches or a fancy BLT of tender belly bacon, local tomato, avocado, red onion, field greens and house-made chipotle mayo on sourdough. There’s a good rotating variety of beer on tap, which sometimes includes Scottsdale’s own Sonoran White Chocolate Ale, and sports often flicker away on the bar TV. For a quieter meal, outdoor tables offer nice garden and street views, perfect for tucking into spicy pork-green chile stew or an artisan sandwich layered with prosciutto crudo, fresh mozzarella, tomato, greens and pesto on focaccia.
