Phoenix is a vibrant and fun city in Arizona that prides itself on its cuisine. With tons of restaurants to choose from, from down-home dinners with no-nonsense pancakes to upscale dinner restaurants with a 5-course menu, there is something for everyone. So, where should you go for one of your first meals in Phoenix?
Positano Central is a great choice. This cool and kitschy restaurant in Phoenix, AZ, is located in the historic Windsor Square neighborhood. Although this building was once the home to the famous Jewish deli, churning out savory pastries and filling sandwiches, today it is Positano Central — an Italian-based restaurant known for its pours of wine, groovy music, and fresh food.
This restaurant is open Monday to Friday from 11 am to 12 am, Saturday from 9 am to 12 am, and Sunday from 9 am to 10 pm — meaning it is the perfect place to visit any time of the day! In the mood for a savory weekend brunch? Positano has you covered. Need a happy hour spot? Head here!
Speaking of happy hour, Positano Central has a GREAT deal that you have to try during your trip. Every day until 5 pm, this popular spot offers $6 glasses of wine and pitchers of beer — to split with your pals, of course! Plus, they offer a $25 bottle of wine and bruschetta board after 8 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays. We can’t think of a better way to start the week!
We recommend trying the meatballs and goat cheese with Pomodoro and chives to split with the table. Or you can try the Maitake Mushroom, a crispy mushroom, oyster and cremini, lebni yogurt, and Cotrone pepper to top off this tasty starter!
For your main course, the OMG Grilled Cheese is always a favorite, featuring layered creamy Gruyere cheese, whipped brie, goat cheese, and white cheddar. If you are in the mood for the bruschetta deal, you can choose your toppings! Select between prosciutto di parma, fresh mozzarella and basil, brie and apple, warm artichoke spread, burrata, and much more for your bread’s topping.
Or go simple with a classic panini. Positano Central is known for their unique sandwich combinations, with classics like a vegetarian panini (with feta, almond, hummus, avocado, and other veg toppings) or a more unique creation, like the Tuna panini, featuring fresh albacore tuna, olive oil, white cheddar, pickle, and dijonnaise sauce.
