Neighborhood eats at Astor House

I'm one lucky girl to live .5 miles away from Tuck Shop — one of Phoenix's best neighborhood restaurants. I'm just walking distance away from mouth-watering chicken and waffles and macaroni and cheese with lobster. Now the brilliant folks behind Tuck Shop have opened a sister restaurant, right next door. Astor House is a brand spanking new eatery in the Coronado neighborhood. It boasts a sweet and savory breakfast menu, killer sandwiches for lunch and small bites for dinner. And to top it all off, they're mixing up some perfect cocktails for summer.

Congratulations Astor House and welcome to the neighborhood.
