Tucson's Cocina de Gabby Is Featured in a New Documentary

Posted By on Wed, Oct 16, 2013 at 1:00 PM

SPINNING PLATES - THEATRICAL TRAILER from Spinning Plates on Vimeo.

Calling the now-closed Cocina de Gabby an "exceptional" restaurant even in the same breath as Chicago's multi-Michelin-starred Alinea seems insane, but hey, it's still cool that Gabrielle and Francisco Martinez, the couple behind the former North First Avenue Mexican restaurant, are featured in a documentary. Spinning Plates, set to hit theaters on Oct. 25, looks at three restaurants and the struggles of their owners to adapt to various types of change and difficulty. Based on the trailer, it would appear the conflict featured for Cocina de Gabby is their struggle to draw customers, a problem mentioned in our review of the place back in 2011 as well.

The film doesn't currently have a scheduled screening in Tucson, but we'll let you know if something comes up.
