Re: “Unexpected Asian

I live in a nearby neighborhood, and it was a real relief to see a good business move in. Hopefully they'll stay!

Re: “Nine on the Line

Being from Newport Rhode Island, we consider ourselves connoisseurs in anything clam, lobster, chourico (Portuguese sausage), or basically seafood related. We look forward to the opening of Jackson Tavern .

I didn't realize I was attempting an investigative exposé with my chef questionnaire.

Re: “Noshing Around

Thank you for keeping us in the know about Tucson restaurants' comings and goings. We're winter visitors, so I'm always curious about what has changed.

Re: “Fourth Avenue Options

Change happens with the Chefs are replaced with those that want to serve good meals.

Re: “Noshing Around

Yes, thank you for pointing that out Sonoran. When I read what I had wrote in print, I cringed at the doucheyness that was that ill timed plug.

You have to understand that writing for a print piece is challenging sometimes when it comes to timelines. Especially if you are doing a bunch of different pieces. There is the date you are writing it, the date it is due, the day it goes to print, and then the day it goes out to the public. I usually do my writing in front of a calendar to avoid such faux pas... However, eventually I suppose everyone makes a mistake.

On a related, albeit different, note, I did go to the supper club, and it was awesome!

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!!

Re: “Noshing Around

"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!

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.
