Re: “Don of Bread

It sure would be nice to see a resumption of real restaurant reviews. These feature fluff pieces are no substitute.

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: “China Szechwan: The Other Menu

I'm glad to see this place get some publicity. I've been to China twice, and this is the real thing. In my opinion it's the best Chinese restaurant in this town by far.

Re: “Reforma Cocina & Cantina: Refine and Reform

What ageist drivel! If the place does not tone down the seasonings to appeal to older diners (something I have never seen done anywhere) why even mention that the crowd "skews much older" on weekdays? Is this a coded warning to the cool young hip types to avoid the place, lest they catch something?

Re: “A Slice of Arizona

It would be nice to also have had a "learning lesson" about availability of beer and wine and prices for those plus the salad offerings. Also, given all the hype about the place, how hard is it to get into? Did you have to wait? Was the place raucous, or could you carry on a conversation?

Re: “Noshing Around

That "easy-to-use interface" won't be necessary, as there are only five Tucson restaurants participating in Restaurant Week, Blanco, Firebirds, North, Melting Pot and Wildfire.

Re: “Mexico Via Washington?

Apparently it's not PC to have figures "that depict men in sombreros using a hoe and a shovel to dig up agave cactus." But it's perfectly fine to insult a restaurant by noting that it attracts "older, mostly white, diners."
