Summer Schedules for 19 Metro Phoenix Restaurants

There's nothing worse than looking forward to eating at your favorite local restaurant all day, only to show up and find that it's closed. Unfortunately, during summer in Phoenix that can be a pretty common occurrence.

With the snow birds and the tourists mostly long gone, things get slow -- like, really slow -- for those in the hospitality business. As such, many of our favorite local chefs and restauranteurs choose to shut down or cut back on hours to rest up, relax, and do some R+D.

Here are 19 independent Phoenix restaurants will summer hours or closures this year.
