Tom's Thumb Fresh Market: Car Wash Meets Cuisine
Care for a little wine with that wax? How about some fire-roasted Mexican corn with that fill up? For those who think they've seen it all, welcome to Tom's Thumb Fresh Market.
Like the love child spawned from an errand-running orgy involving a car wash, gas station, coffee shop, bistro, farmers' market, and wine shop, Tom's in North Scottsdale, which opened in mid-January, has made these everyday activities extraordinary -- by conveniently (and ambitiously) putting them all in one place.
And you might be surprised at who's in the kitchen.
Along with the full-service fuel station and premium car wash, guests at Tom's (on the southwest corner of 94th Street and Bell Road) can also enjoy a cup of Pinnacle Perk Coffee, find a new favorite wine with the help of a sommelier, and browse a market of fresh cheeses, produce, and unique grocery items.
The Campfire Bistro's sliced beef brisket sandwich.
Hungry? Pop into The Campfire Bistro at Tom's for breakfast, lunch, or dinner courtesy of chef Tudie Frank-Johnson, formerly chef and owner of D'licious Dishes, the gourmet take-out eatery in Phoenix that closed last August after a three-year run. Featuring Frank Johnson's Southern-style barbecue (also available for take-out), the menu also includes a blackened Angus burger, fried oyster sandwich, and red chili cheese enchiladas.
