One of the perennial favorites among
local Mexican food aficionados. The
chorizos are made on site, and the chimis
are crisp and full.
For a little bit of France, Ghini’s is the spot. With a lovely patio (pet friendly, mind you), and an eclectic menu, you’re sure to find something that pleases. Start with Ghini’s signature eggs Provencal, which works well for breakfast or lunch. Omelettes abound, as do sandwiches. (We like the croque Madame.) The crepes are tempting. There’s a long list of coffees and other beverages. We hear the lavender lemonade, which is only available in the summer, is not to be missed. (3-8-14)
Discover one of Tucsons most friendly places for wine. On Thursday, Friday, Saturday and every other Wednesday, the folks here pour well-thought-out flights of wine. Conversation is warm, comfortable and certainly not intimidating. Theres no food (other than cheese, crackers and chocolate to pair with the wine), but its still a lot of fun. Most bottles are $15 or less. (2-26-09)
