urban fresh has SUCH better choices than any of the vegan options at blue willow. that sweet potato sandwich is awful.
It's easy to be the best when you only accept the very best. Applying students can come from any school too, which means less kids who attended TUSD schools prior to enrollment. Let's not pretend UHS is a typical public school, when it is anything but. I'm glad despite AZ's dreadful national status on education Tucson had some promising schools but both our top performing high schools are gifted best of the best only admissions. If anything they are direct proof of why AZ is such a horrendous disgrace to public education. We make exclusive schools abandoning the majority.
Are you kidding me! All the wonderful LOCALLY OPERATED AND OWNED framing shops in Tucson who are great and they pick Michaels. That's sad
I feel pretty compelled to ask why in the world would Tucson Weekly say blue willow (not a Vegan or Vegetarian restaurant) is the best Vegan/Vegetarian restaurant? Pretty silly. Also, saying something is delicious in it's own right, and then stating "flavor that won't have you missing the meat."
That nonsense made me throw up in my mouth a little bit.
Why would a non-vegan/vegetarian restaurant even be able to win in this category?
This is like a steakhouse winning because it has an awesome vegetarian dish.
Radioglenn: The world is full of surprises, Glenn. This can be another one.
Dante's Fire has great food at night too.
Haven't tried these but Dao's Taipan on Wilmot (and new loc 1st and Limberlost) quite good!
Another great recommendation, Pima Air Museum.
Loft also features beer/wine/pizza options and added a new on-site theater last year--huzzah!
Plus kudos for supporting local artists! Always something interesting on display.
`I commend you,"soazmom", because, Apple Annie's, you are doing an exceptional job of monitoring your web presence. All the same, let the community speak. Stop deleting your negative posts! Maybe you are too expensive, and, perhaps, you don't have enough available to pick at some times of the year.
Do they design the clothing they sell?
How on earth did Barrio win this thing!? And Nimbus in 2nd?! REALLY!? I mean I like Tucson Blonde and Dirty Guera/Monkey Shine and they are certainly deeply entrenched into hearts/minds of Tucson's beer drinking community but for quality they leave a lot to be desired. Among my beer brewing friends Dragoon comes in at 1st, followed by ten fifty-five, and Iron John's. Then again, for the brew-pub experience (food and bar games) you really can't beat the atmosphere of Barrio and Nimbus. Maybe that is why they came out on top?
Blue Willow??? No. Absolutely they do not have the best vegetarian or vegan food. They have like maybe one or two vegan items and they both kinda suck. I don't know anyone who goes there. How the hell did they win in this category?
Thank you Tucson! We are so proud and thankful for the confidence you place in us. Here's to many more years of helping to make the world a better place for us all. (Oh and btw-We actually have 5 locations - 3 clinical and 2 hotels.)
Blue Willow??? I think this was rigged. I have a feeling Blue Willow must have found a way to get lots of votes other than merit alone. Lots of friends?
Unless their food has changed, I would never consider Blue Willow as a destination for vegan food. Their vegan options have always struck me as half-assed -- food from the regular menu, with things removed to make it acceptable, but I don't feel like they are trying to make good vegan food on purpose. I had their tofu scramble once, and the tofu wasn't seasoned. Bleccch. Do any local vegans go there as a first choice, or only when eating with omnis? I'm sure this restaurant won the 'distinction' based on votes by non-vegans who couldn't think of the names of any vegan restaurants. Just looking at their menu, they can't even both to separate their 'special diets' section into two parts, instead mixing vegan and gluten-free together in a way that doesn't make any sense. It's clear they don't value their vegan OR GF customers, but are just mollifying them
Blue Willow winning top Vegetarian/Vegan restaurant in Tucson is a farce! Food For Ascension Café, Urban Fresh, Govinda's and Lovin' Spoonfuls should be in the top spots over Blue Willow.
I have known Lucinda Holliday for almost 25 years congratulations you deserve it my beautiful friend.
OMG...I am so honored!!! I had no idea this was even happening.
XOXO Lucinda Holliday
