I read your postings weekly. I get so excited when new restaurants are opening in central tucson. ... Bianco is beyond exciting... I still can't believe it ( Im from phoenix grew up on bianco). That being said ... Tucson sure does have a lot of pizza joints. I feel like every time I see a new place opening up, it is pizza! If we are bringing phx to tucson what we really need is green vegetarian.. someone talk to damon!!!!
Jamie's sold her truck and it is moving to Montana
Something about missing 1's... Aussie Cantina is going in at 1118 E. 6th where Rhino Pub/Belushe's/Knock Out's was.
Believe the owners of Sleeping Frog Farms ran the Big Fat Greek restaurant at Camp Lowell and Swan??
Thank you Jake. You are correct, it is 118 E. Congress. My apologies, damn my fat fingers and need for prescription lenses!
Correction: Bruno Panini's address is 118 E. Congress.
I totally get what you meant by "food worthy". It's not that there aren't any great chefs in Tucson, but it's not really considered a culinary hot spot nationally or internationally. The presence of a top-rated chef opening a restaurant there MEANS something and has significance.
I never said that there isn't equally talented Chefs/Restauranteurs already here. What and Who I am referring to is those that work day to day behind the line, making the visions of these chefs come to life. Its validation for us, the middle guys, not the ones with "Chef/Owner" after their name. That we, the day to day soldiers, are as good as places such as NY or LA or even Portland, a place that many like to compare Tucson to on a regular basis. That is what I am referring to when I say, "Food Worthy".
"Food Worthy"???? Really? What does that mean? Tucson has a a lot of talented chefs and restaurateurs already and I don't think the owner of Bianco deeming us "worthy" of having his restaurants here suddenly gives them credibility or makes them any less his equal.
Many years ago it was a restaurant rum by the folks at a local ashram. It was also a Bavarian restaurant. And I think a pizza parlor.
I remember when the Dante's Fire building was actually on fire, in January 1996. Is this what they are naming the restaurant after?
TGIFriday's on Broadway closed on Saturday night.
