Upcoming Events

What: Kingfisher’s Road Trip 2016 Summer Menu Series
When: June 15th – June 29th for the Pacific Northwest Tour (Visit Kingfisher’s website for more detailed hours of operation as they’ve got a lunch menu, late night menu, and dinner menu.)

Road trips can be a pain; you’ve got to make sure you’ve got cool driving jams, pack (worst thing ever), watch for delays, and sit in a car for an unreal length of time – time that could be better spent at Kingfisher. While it’s not the same thing, Chef/Owners Jim Murphy, Jeff Azersky and Executive Chef Fred Harris have put together a series of menus for their 23rd annual Kingfisher Road Trip that’ll make your mouth believe you actually got in the car and left Tucson.

The second leg of the 23rd annual Kingfisher Road Trip series begins tomorrow, on Wednesday, June 15th. Executive Chef Fred Harris’ menu features the bounty of the Pacific Northwest, covering the states of Washington, Oregon and Alaska – a region known for its seafood and many types of produce, berries, mushrooms and more.
