That is awesome! Love the enchiladas. Green chile rocks!
Hey maybe that could be a drink name.
My husband and I go there almost every Saturday night for dinner and to listen to the JAZZ. Now that they've added music on Friday night we've added that to our weekend entertainment. Cushing's food is consistently good and the staff are attentive and friendly. This is my favorite spot for food and entertainment in Tucson.
A very enjoyable Tucson "standard." I respectfully don't think "classic" is the right word to describe the place. BUT, my issue is they stopped serving lunch a few years back much to Tucson's loss. With everyone talking or at least writing about the up swing in the downtown Tucson scene maybe it is time to bring back lunch.
And the bleu cheese grits are great!
Was at Cushing Street the first night it opened - have much enjoyed it over the years when the Rollings family was running the place, as they are currently.
Just ate there last night---desserts to die for!
My wife & I "rediscovered" Cushing St. a few months back and have dined there several times since (and will again this Saturday). We agree the salmon is excellent.
I was at Poco & Mom's yesterday, and there was a sign that read they would open in September.
Cushing Street was my first review for the Weekly. Glad to see it is still doing well. Great review, JK.
The plate of obesity. You wish those grapes somehow show balance. The review did not include an evaluation of the fruit for a good reason. It wasn't eaten.
Good news though, you can substitute fruit for fried cheese or french fries.
It's an excellent business model. The Hungry Fox chaos proves that. Appeals to 3/4 of the population.
Have you not seen a photograph of yourself recently?
I am so damn hungry now.
Someone else has an Aunt Dodo?
Food-good, atmosphere-very authentic Italian, company-the best (my adult children), conversation-NO IDEA! WE WERE SEATED WAY TOO CLOSE TO A LARGE, VERY LOUD GROUP OF PPL WHO OBVIOUSLY THOUGHT THEY WERE AT HOME and not at a nice restaurant, so couldn't hear a word spoken by my dinner partners. Had the restaurant staff known to seat small intimate groups away from large, loud ones I might have more nice things to say.
Yes I was.
i hope you're kidding Not a.....
The only complaint I have is that I've been driving by this place for a long time (20 years off and on) and I hope that someday my car will break down near this establishment so I can finally eat there.
I get the feeling that the reviewer really wanted to trash this restaurant to keep new people from showing up so the Saturday wait won't get longer. And in the end, her conscience just wouldn't allow it.
This guy bangs westside harder than Tupac did.
MMH: I have no issue with the Mercado. I like it. I shop and eat there relatively frequently (want to threaten me about what's going to happen when I'm on the Westside?) but you might be one of the few politically-active Westside residents crying about the creep of gentrification. The area is likely to change, especially with the streetcar, it's just a matter of how it's managed.
Also, slow your roll a little bit. Name-calling does your opinion basically zero favors.
Moves and firewalls? Dan, you and JK are speaking some kind of journalistic lingo that is hard to decipher. Here is what I am saying: The Mercado is as diverse a destination demographically as any retail center I know of in Tucson. Our neighborhood worked to achieve a vision of small local businesses that provide neighborhood oriented retail including a genuine farmers' market. The Mercado is not just some "expensive firewall" it is a neighborhood focal point for celebrations as personal as birthdays and ethnic as the Dia de San Juan. It is as close to what hundreds of neighbors spent years discussing and petitioning for as I can imagine possible. It has high end and it has economical just like our neighborhood. Nattering naybobs like you have been threatening the G word ever since Rio Nuevo was passed by the voters in 1999. But we just want an empanda to go with our cup of coffee in the morning and a raspado to cool off on a hot summer night. And we are grateful that minority and women owned and local businesses are providing this to us at the Mercado. We want to walk and ride our bikes to support local farmers at the Food Bank's market at the Mercado. We want to celebrate our diversity and culture as the birthplace of Tucson at festivals at the Mercado. If you can't understand that I don't know what to tell you.
Mac: Jacqueline certainly has the right to her opinion, even if you disagree, but if you don't think there's some gentrification moves happening with the Mercado, I'm not sure what to tell you.
@mmh - fair enough
