At Last!

Mark your calendars!

For months, I’ve been watching as a huge, white, windowed building was  being built on the old Grant Road Lumber Yard site

I could hardly wait. This was after all, going to be the first new Fox Restaurant Concepts restaurant in Tucson in quite some time. And it was going to be Culinary Dropout, a jazzy eatery with a menu that made my mouth water.


Well, the word is out…. Culinary Dropout is opening on September 20!

The space is massive, some 20,000 square feet made for eating, drinking, live music and games.

There will be a dedicated area called The Yard with games both new and traditional. A private dining room can hold 150 people.

The food will be a mix of items other Culinary Dropouts (Soft Pretzels & Provolone Fondue, 34-Hour Pork Ribs, Fried Chicken) and the potent potables will include Arizona beers and a long list of creative cocktails.

This is going to be a great addition to the Grant Road foodie corridor.

PS – If you are a food service person looking for a great job, Culinary Dropout will be hiring 210 people in all aspects of the restaurant. Apply here:
