Something Sweet Dessert Lounge will remain open after all! :)
Adam, thanks for your update today. Glad you read the comments.
There's a new frozen custard place opening "soon" at the old Hamburger Stand on Grant near Country Club.
It's anchored in the online chow section in the box labeled "Regarding Food Truck Diaries." Enjoy!
OK, smartguy, how does one find the eight food truck comments?
Vito's makes great food. The pizza was very tasty. True New York style. Best I had in Tucson. The Italian Sandwich was really good, enough for two people. Made with delicious Boars Head meat on a Viro's italian roll with italian dressing...the perfect italian.
Thanks for putting the whisky tasting in this weeks chow scan, rather than last weeks, so a good majority of people could see it after it happened.
Bad location for a gastropub.
Hmm I would appreciate a good gastropub. Tried the new location of Acacia, totally different vibe and mostly different menu. They have regular and reverse happy hour with more beers on tap than before, mini sonoran hot dogs, a respectable guacamole, really tasty gnocchi and a killer view of the city. My only complaint is that where ever they store their red wine is too cold, it came out much cooler than it should be. It was very busy, so I hope that means they will be successful there.
I've been hearing the same rumor that Rita's hearing.
I haven't heard anything yet, but I'll do some checking and drop a comment here if I find anything.
Does anyone know what is going in at St. Philips where Acacia was?
Well... "trendy" maybe in the sense of lowering the rent and offering less expensive items. Which is what Elle did recently. In this economy, how many high- (or even higher-) end restaurants can survive?
The existing Acacia is just about perfect. I hope they don't muck it up trying to be trendy.
If you're looking for Chinese, Dragon Palace at Broadway and Camino Seco is also open all day.
SecretlyCanadian: The Cup Cafe is open on Christmas (breakfast and a prix-fixe deal at night). The new Elle is open from noon to 8 p.m. The restaurant at Lodge on the Desert is open pretty much all day Christmas day. Lotus Garden and Pastiche Modern Eatery will be open, too.
Not only was there nothing wrong with the columnist giving a shout out to the owner of Cafe' Aqui, but it was kind of him to do so. I hope he continues to share heartwarming stories about what is going on in our community.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what will be open besides the resorts on Christmas Day? I just called two Chinese restaurants that will not be open. Thanks!!!!
You people all have way too much time on your hands... the guy gave beans in a generous moment, Mr. Borowtiz simply shared the generosity by acknowledging it....nicely done. For the rest of you cranks, why don't you go out there and volunteer some of your holiday time and make the world a nicer place....
