Explore Central Mexico with Penca in a five-course “Noches De Penca” dinner (MENU)

Two seating times, five courses.

Downtown Tucson’s Penca is hosting a five-course “Noches de Penca” dinner with two seating times at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. on Monday, September 23.

From the start, Penca has always tackled Mexico City-inspired cuisine, but with new executive chef David Solorzano, his inspiration veers off into the influences of Central Mexico.

Chef Solorzano has crafted all five courses to represent a finer side of Mexican cuisine, including a mole dish near the top of the menu and finishing off the evening with a mole-inspired dessert.

Seats are $60 per person and you’ll need to make reservations beforehand.
