Re: “The Road to UNESCO

Tucson City Council and the Mayor can certainly help this to move forward passing the changes to the urban agriculture code on December 8th. These changes have been well researched, the public has been involved and it is way beyond time for this to finally pass. How can Tucson say it wants this designation and then not allow more residents to provide themselves with food and eggs?

Re: “The Road to UNESCO

The Tucson City Council can support this effort by adopting the extremely sensible and well-thought-out amendments to the urban agriculture ordinances next Tuesday.

Re: “Old Frontier: Los Portales

I like this place , the food is good and it's very comfortable. I've been going here off and on for 30 years, back when it was El Zarape. Now there was some no frills dining. Food was good though.

Re: “Old Frontier: Los Portales

"...photos and fonts that would probably make the restaurant's ilk turn their nose up a bit."
Huh?

"...with only one other table ever being there concurrently with my visits..."
Djuh?

Copy editor, STAT!

Re: “Common Goods: Commoner & Co.

Why not just place a salt lick block under each table? Problem solved.

Re: “Common Goods: Commoner & Co.

I agree with a number of the reviews about "salt" and more "salt." Seriously? We love Commoner and eat there frequently, and "not enough salt" has never crossed my mind. Personally, I'm looking for fresh, interesting and flavorful without resorting to salt and the usual flavor-obliterating additions. Just saying.

Re: “Common Goods: Commoner & Co.

Sounds like the reviewer has a burned out palate from too much salt. Trying doing without it for a while, I bet the nuances and flavors of food will come through. If they don't . . . oh well . . . grab that ol' salt shaker if that's your favorite spice.

EatsLikeaBird, a good editor would have pointed out that the review was missing that important information. However.....good editor not available.

Re: “Common Goods: Commoner & Co.

Not enough salt? Really? How hard is it to shake a little salt on your food if that's what you like? As someone already said, most places over salt their food & once that is done, the food is ruined. We have only eaten there twice, but have shared about 10 different things. Can't say this about too many places, but EVERYTHING was good & some things REALLY good. Nothing was lacking salt. Jeez, that's scary that salt is the reason you criticized this place.

Matt Martinez and Obon have nothing to do with
Commonor.

Revision needed.

Re: “Common Goods: Commoner & Co.

The place is ear-shatteringly loud. You have to shout to the server. It quiets down a bit after about 9 pm.

I didn't find the food to be under-seasoned. To the contrary; I thought it was just about perfect. Then again, most restaurants over-salt the food, for my palate, anyhow.

Re: “Common Goods: Commoner & Co.

Not a word about the service. Hardly anything about the decor or physical layout. Nothing about ambience or noise level. How the food is served and the atmosphere in which it's eaten are important factors in the dining experience.

Re: “Coupe D’état

Dimly lit?
NOW you tell me, I always thought my camera was having technical issues when I was inside the Red Room, now I finally find out it was a shortage of elecricity. Darn. All of these new places are just plasticky things that look like they were ordered from Amazon and delivered overnight. None of them have the ratty ambiance or the intellectual atmosphere of the Red Room where horrible piano players could pass themselves off as Glenn Gould just having a bad day, or where people whose frontal lobes had been burned away by decades of bad chemicals could make poetry presentations...
