Local world class pizzeria and social house, Humble Pie, has reemerged in Scottsdale with new chef and owner, Jorge Gomez, and a full-scale renovation to its dining room, menu and bar.
Stepping into the intimate neighborhood restaurant is warm and welcoming, with neutral colors and old-world aesthetics accentuated by a glass wine wall. Vintage Edison bulbs, black refurbished seating, antique accents and old fashioned prints on the wall, offer a comforting glimpse of global food cities of yesteryear.
Gomez, with more than two decades of international and local experience, redeveloped a new chef driven menu to bring globetrotting flavors, techniques and ingredients to the rebranded Humble Pie. After graduating as a classically French trained chef from the Culinary Institute of Mexico and training in Barcelona and Europe, he mastered the art of world class pizza and helped build local restaurants under LGO Hospitality and Genuine Concepts. He also competed in Food Network shows, Guys Grocery Games and Summer Cook Off, where he accumulated two wins and will compete in future Champions Games. Gomez takes inspiration from his travels, family and mentors. He highlights fresh, top quality ingredients and blends old-world techniques with new-world inspiration as he crafts his own â€œNot Soâ€ humble elevated fare.
â€œMy love and passion for food started at a really young age with my grandmother teaching me how to cook traditional Mexican cuisine,â€ said Gomez, chef and owner. â€œAfter traveling the world, Iâ€™m excited to combine my classical Spanish and French influence with worldwide flavors and techniques to create our new American Italian fare at the â€œNot Soâ€ Humble Pie in each of the neighborhoods we serve.â€
Humble Pie puts a uniquely modern twist on traditional dishes with freshly made in-house pastas, artisanal Napoletana pizzas, signature Italian paninis on baked to order sourdough bread, and elevated charcuterie boards with specialty imported meats, cheeses and more. Using only the best ingredients and time-honored handmade techniques, Humble Pie makes its bread in-house and English muffins for the weekend Brunch from its own sourdough starter, which requires three days to cultivate and develop. Each dish is sophisticated and perfectly complemented by humbly priced wines and handcrafted cocktails. Humble Pie tantalizes the tastebuds with a new experience and takes elevated comfort cuisine to the next level. Its new world menu also offers a variety of vegetarian, gluten free and vegan options from its globally influenced kitchen.
Open Tuesday through Friday from 12 to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. With two locations in Scottsdale and Glendale, Humble Pie offers daily specials, happy hour, lunch deals and brunch with indoor-outdoor seating that makes it perfect for any social and business gathering. Carryout and delivery are available at both locations.
