The article is beautifully written, but dairy is never humane or eco-friendly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcN7SGGoCNI

Re: “Under One Roof

We'll wait until the height of summer when we can enjoy the place without the crowds.
Wish them all the best, of course!

Re: “Downtown Rumbling

"Brewstillery."

What a silly faux-word. Is Brewery & Distillary too hard?

Maybe I'll hopen a MortuFunHome because mortuary and funeral home = too many syllables

Re: “The Great Crossover

There used to be regular food truck round ups - across from Himmel Park on Sundays; at Campbell and Ft. Lowell on Wednesday nights.
Now - haven't seen one in ages in the city center.

Re: “The Great Crossover

I have no doubt that the writer himself is highly addicted to the Delicious food served by the Curry Pot. I was in Tucson last year & did have not one but a few meals at the Curry Pot during my short vacation. The food is delicious & is really authentic. If one has to get a tast of food from the Paradise Isle - Sri Lanka the only place I would recommend is the Curry Pot .

Re: “Succulent Celebration

No mention of the local Bacanora?

The wonderful Agave. I surely miss the Sonoran Desert. Colorado is beautiful but nothing like the variety of everything in the Sonoran Desert.

Re: “Asian Cajun

Let's start at the front door. We arrived shortly after opening (1700). The first employee interaction was just outside the front door with the employee that was in the way while dicking about with his phone and blowing smoke at us. When we entered there were no other customers but plenty of staff, one was staring blankly at a calculator, the next was dicking about with his phone, the next was watching a fight on the big ole TV, not one of them stopped what they were doing to greet us and they continued doing the same things the whole time we were there. Finally a woman came out of the back and told us to sit anywhere and gave us some odd menus.

1700/5pm is when they open. We arrived shortly after, yet the garbage can in the women's bathroom was completely full and overflowing on to the ground. Three of the people working in the kitchen were wearing flip flops.

This close to opening I would expect everything to plentiful and fresh, especially at a seafood restaurant. So sorry, we are out of beer, lemons and only have one pound of green muscles. As we were ordering she kept having to go in the back to see if they had what we were ordering. The sodas came in warm cans served with a plastic cup, no ice. The iced tea came in a warm plastic bottle with a plastic cup, no ice.

We were then served a basket of awful, stale bread rolls with frozen butter.

When our food finally came, all that checking to see if they had what we wanted to order took a while, I was unable to eat much of mine. I am told that the green mussels were good, as were the shrimp and one order of crab legs. The clams and my order of crab legs were awful. They smelled off when they arrived, were not fresh, the shells were soft and the meat stuck to the insides of them.

Our group member with the cast iron stomach wanted to take them home to make crab salad with so I asked to have them packed to go. They dumped everything in the bowl (lots of liquid and sharp pointy shells) into a single plastic grocery bag.

We have been blessed to enjoy many excellent locally owned restaurants here in Tucson, this was not one of them.

Re: “Asian Cajun

Influenced by the Tucson Weekly's review of Seafood Time, our family ate there last week. We try to support small restaurants and local businesses. Unfortunately, it was one of the worst restaurant experiences we've ever had.

We're guessing the restaurants has some serious problems. We visited on a Saturday evening and other than us, there was one other table of two people. We were there early in the evening and the trash cans in the bathrooms were overflowing with garbage. At least half of the items we tried to order (mussels, sodas), they were out of. When we asked for some lemon slices, that was also unavailable.

Our waitress had to go to kitchen to answer almost any questions we had. Including what they were out of. Several other employees (or maybe just friends or family members) sat at a table in the middle of the dining room using their phones.

And worst of all, the food was not good. The clams weren't hot. The crab legs had an odd taste and texture. The rolls were not of the type that we usually expect with seafood and the butter was so hard it was impossible to spread, especially with the plastic knives. No utensils were served with our food and when we requested forks to use with the side dishes, we were given flimsy plastic.

We got a sense that someone had a good idea: a family-run, inter-generational, seafood restaurant. However, there seems to be little attention or experience in service, cooking, or how to effectively manage a restaurant.

Either the restaurant has declined since the review or the reviewer was exceedingly "generous."

Re: “The Greenest Party

I stopped by last week and it is important to know they cannot sell from that location. They were very nice and gave me a tour. they also told me locations like Rincon Market, Time Market, Food Co-op on 4th Ave, and AJ's for their produce. Very clean place; well thought out.
