restaurants near Shea and Tatum
32 Shea -- coffee house & sandwich shop by day; full service restaurant with daily specials by night
Eden's Grill -- charming place for kabobs and fragrant rice dishes; based mostly on Iraqi cuisine with some influences from elsewhere in the Middle East
Nee House -- Chinese food with live seafood in tanks. Make sure to ask for the Chinese menu rather than just ordering from the American one
The plethora of chain restaurants surrounding Paradise Valley Mall one mile to the north
Breakfast/Lunch: The Oink Café - popular place particularly for breakfast. Great service and food. Specialize in pork obviously (bacon flight & pork confit are my favorites).

Brunch/Lunch/Dinner: Rusconi's American Kitchen - solid American fine-dining cuisine in a casual atmosphere. Wood-burning oven turns out some tasty items.
