Tucker Duke's to open in Tallahassee

20140221_FLA_BR_023In news that may appeal only to South Florida politicians with business in the state capital and to hungry journalists in the Miami Herald/Tampa Bay Times Tallahassee bureau: Tucker Duke's Lunchbox is opening this summer at 224 E. College Ave. in Tallahassee. 

Those same politicians and journalists will remember that space as home to a former Po' Boys Creole Cuisine, which closed in December after years of serving the best fried pickles in town. (The Herald/Times bureau is a block from the restaurant.)

Tucker Duke's originally opened in Valparaiso in 2011 and expanded to Deerfield Beach this year, along with a food truck and a cult-like following for its namesake burger. The Broward location earned a three-star review from the Sun-Sentinel in April, and chef-owner Brian Cartenuto won "Cutthroat Kitchen" on the Food Network last year.
