Corduroy.....


...not the fabric but the restaurant!
There is a new locally owned restaurant in mid-town Phoenix located right on Central Avenue.  It's called Corduroy and it's in a building that was formerly a Schlotzky's sandwich shop.  The menu feature a large number of shared plates or tapas along with entrees, salads and sandwiches all with a just a bit of a Spanish touch.  That's Spanish as in Spain, not Mexico.  


The inside is warm and casual with exposed brick walls and stylish wicker furniture.  You can't see it in this photo but, the ceiling is covered with patterned tin tiles adding to the polished look.  I've been twice now and have enjoyed everything that I've tried.  I love the empanadas and the "Cuban Cigars" are quite tasty.  Those are like egg rolls with meats and cheese inside.  



One of my favorite parts of the decor were these great Mission style lamps.  I'd love to take one home with me.  

If you live in Phoenix, give Corduroy a try.  I think you'll find lots of tasty things await you.

Love the warm cosy decor Sharon, food sounds good too. Unusual name Cordroy' wonder where it derived from? You would have had to tassle me for that gorgeous lamp :)

It looks small on the outside but the inside looks nice and roomy. It would be fun to know the idea for the name.

In college I had a pair of orange corduroy Levis. We were in love. They were also a 'hit' on campus.

I like the decor both inside and out but am not a huge Spain Spanish food fan...

I was surprised by the decor inside. Different than what I would expect looking at the building from outside. Looks good and I like that lamp too!

I like the looks of this place and I like that lamp too, Sharon!

Since Judy took you to Casa Azul in Prescott for tapas now you can return the favor with Corduroy.

The exposed brick particularly stands out for me. Those "cuban cigars" sound tempting!

It looks very nice and cozy. I remember Schlotzky's. Haven't seen one in years, though. There are some things I would probably enjoy at Corduroys. Strange name for a restaurant, though - must have some special meaning...

It always feels great to find a good new restaurant. Interesting name.

Looks like a good place.

The place has a fine "look." If you liked the food, I would give it a try.
