I definitely share your sentiment. I and a friend waited until the day after the Grand Re-Opening of the Rincon Market to make our first visit in over a year. The food is just as good as it was before the fire. It's great to have the Rincon Market back.
Pollo Feliz makes me crap myself
Pollo Feliz finally opened at Speeday and columbus at the same building Taco Juans and Whataburger was at. They had signs up for almost a year but just opened this past week.
Nice assist Mr. Alboy!
Don't Forget the Tucson Originals Pizza throwdown is this Sunday the Eighth from five to eight at Rocco's little Chicago on Broadway....Only twenty dollars a ticket on the Tucson Originals website. tucsonoriginals.com
Coz as a former New Englander, we usually don't eat seafood unless we can see the ocean, donchaknow, deah. Ayuh.
It's way Northwest to those of us who live east of Harrison and South of Golf Links!
SW according to the website it is steamed.
Just as long as Bluefin STEAMS and doesn't BOIL their lobsters, as they've done in the past.
Steaming = tender meat; boiling = tough.
No problem CJ... glad you gave us a shout out for our little pop-up event... we appreciate your support of local restaurants...
Food Guy: I thought they would be by the time this came to print, but I called on Monday, incognito, and they were still stating they were open and accepting reservations.
Sam: I went back and reviewed my hand written notes, and sure enough it said Monsoons (in very poor penmanship) and I somehow transformed that to Mama L's when typing. I guess I am still getting used to the newbs in the T.O. camp! - Thanks for the correction.
scheppta: I am sure all the cities' restaurant turnover rates are similar, we just do an extraordinary job of covering it. Also, if you are unimpressed, either you are going to the wrong places, not paying attention or just Marco Pierre White.
I never lived in any city that had more restaurants closing/failing than Tucson.
Really quite sad. On the other hand, since moving here 11 years ago, I have been generally
unimpressed with the overall restaurant experience here.
The pizza throw down for the tucson originals will have Rocco's, Monsoon's Tap and Grill, Vero Amore, and Magpies. As well as desserts from Pastiche and Dante's Fire. Liabations from only local brews..
V thai is closed. I walked by today and they were moving out everything. Can't say I'm sad.
Yeah what the heck? This is old news!
No Noshing Around column this week?
@Adam - That means a lot coming from you. Believe me, I will continue until they peel me from my keyboard.
@Jacqueline & Fred, Thanks for your support!
@schpetta - I think their concept is brilliantly cool.
Good food coverage week after week, smart writing, error-free. Methinks you should continue writing this column for the good of Tucson diners.
The long review and Noshing Around are two articles I check every issue. I hope you stick around.
The Parish is "ultra cool"? Peleeeez Good luck to you.
