What You'll Get
Night owls and oenophiles can fill up on perfect pours and paninis with today's deal, where $15 gets you $30 worth of eats and drink at Centro Paninoteca. The hospitable hot spot specializes in an unintimidating wine list and a stellar selection of small plates and sandwiches.
Grapey guzzlers of all varieties are sure to find satisfying sips with Centro's extensive wine list. Probe the friendly and attentive wait staff for selections or experiment on your own. Wines by the glass start at $7, and you can view a complete food menu here. Plates sized for sharing, such as the goat cheese and slow-roasted tomatoes crustini ($9.50) or mixed olive bowl ($6), are a tasty way to get started and to consume the recommended daily dose of olives (90 olives per day in winter, 130 in summer). Graduate from grade-school tomato-soup soakers to Centro's mature grilled cheese with fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, tomato, and arugula ($9.50) or the Lulu's press with Vermont yellow-and-white cheddar, jack cheese, and tomato ($9).
Owner Casey Kucera keeps his sultry eatery open into the wee hours (until 2 a.m.), encouraging diners to pop in before or after an evening out with retired Broadway stars for a quick bite or slow sip. Candles, a lounge-able soundtrack, and cozy seating help set the mood.

- Everything I tried at Centro was fresh and flavorful, with bread baked daily by Arizona Bread Company, and noticeably nice produce. – Michele Laudig, Phoenix New Times
