Where to eat tartines in Scottsdale

French tartines and Italian bruschetta are kind of similar, but there are still some differences. Both are crusty bread with a lot of toppings, but tartines seem a little fancier and they have a loyal following in Arizona. Today, we’re presenting you three Scottsdale’s restaurants with amazing French tartines.


Brian Archibald, executive chef at Francine uses charcoal-grilled red fife wheat bread from Mediterra Bakehouse. Fig & Prosciutto tartine has roasted fig, ricotta, roquefort black pepper and honey. This Mediterranean mix will leave you craving for more. The more savory, the avocado tartine has avocado, broccoli sprouts, shaved radishes and house-made dukka seasoning for texture.

Archibald reveals the secret to a successful tartine:

“If the bread doesn’t have the integrity to support [the toppings], then it’s all for nothing.”
