You'll always find comfort food and one of the Valley's most famous gin and tonics at Tuck Shop in central Phoenix. And the restaurant recently introduced its new winter menu with tasty dishes including Catfish and Crawfish, Pine AZ Spiced Steak and Salmon and Shrimp Cakes. Chef and owner DJ Fernandez has also made a change to the restaurant's ever-popular mac and cheese, serving the dish with house-cured bacon instead of prosciutto. The restaurant is open from 5 to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. You can view the complete new menu here.
