Re: “Worth the Wait

Daniel's food is as good as ever. I don't know anything about a reservations policy: is this something new? We've had lunch there twice and simply walked in - no problem. I've had dinner there once and we had a 6pm reservation. The place was packed, but our table was waiting.

Re: “Worth the Wait

I have always loved Vivace, and Danny Scordato is a Tucson treasure, who has endured many location changes. I wish him all best successes at the newest location!

And now the negative: this ridiculous reservation policy has got to go...If you fall for this 4:30 pm or 9:30 pm policy, & then show up for an expensive dinner, while most people are still at work, or taking a nice afternoon nap, and then you see that almost nobody else is seated...or you show up at 9:30 pm, to an empty house, you begin to realize that this policy is a rude, unnecessary way to get you to pay up for an undesirable dining time...

Here is the way to beat the offensive policy: show up as a walk-in, with no reservation. If there is an open table, you might just score. It all depends on the host/hostess. The former manager, whose first name starts with an "E" was an obnoxious gatekeeper, who clearly tried to make you feel inferior if your reservation was not made many, many weeks ago. Even then, he was just a phony snob.

The food and wines at Vivace are stellar Italian, and I highly suggest that you try it out, but beware, getting a table is a ridiculous mind game of useless negotiation. It truly needs to end right now!!

Hi Jerry! I am from Warwick originally, my twin brother lives in n. Providence! We showed Ginny Newport on our roadtrip, took her to Anthony's! Check out our Facebook page for pics from that trip! A look at home.

I promise you this food will bring home to you. Brian

"Or better yet for a sneak peak at the direct Jackson is going, make reservations for the next supper club at Poppy Kitchen on November 18, where much of the menu will preview Jackson's fare."

Um, this event was 2 days ago.

Re: “Noshing Around

Being from Newport RI, we are anxiously awaiting the opening of Jackson Tavern. We grew up with anything and everything clams, lobsters, seafood and chourico (Portuguese sausage) and may prove to be tough critics!

Re: “Worth the Wait

The article is in here twice. But that seems appropriate based on its content.

Re: “Worth the Wait

This is great news. The RM is a Tucson landmark. Glad to see them back in business. Must have had great insurance.
