Summer Deals: A Taste of Tuck Shop for Two

One of central Phoenix's favorite dinner spots is serving up more than just great eats this summer. While other restaurants are closing for parts, if not all, of July, Tuck Shop is offering a dinner deal with four plates for $39.

You have your choice of a starter, a small plate, a sharing plate, and a dessert to split with whomever you decide to take with you to Tuck for this deal and you'll each only be spending about $20 per person.

We'd probably opt for the cucumber gazpacho with baby carrots, crema fresca, and chili oil to start. Then follow that up with the chorizo and gruyere stuffed dates and the spiced steak with parmesan lentil mashed potatoes and mushrooms. Finally, dessert is du jour, but if it's anything like the gratis cookie dough balls, it'll definitely be good.

All of that would normally be about $50 and we weren't even going for the most expensive items on the menu, just some of our favorites. $20 bottles of wine are available as well. You can find the full menu, along with more information, on the Tuck Shop website.
