Re: “Hot Spot

Cant wait to go!

Re: “Hot Spot

All well and good, but I'm pretty sure Banámichi is in Sonora, puro sonorense. East of Hermosillo, south of Bisbee and Cananea, close by the Rio Sonora.

Re: “Quaint Possible

As a local, we head to Puckles regularly. Adam has always delivered in excellent food and service! His prices are reasonable and quality ingredients are always on the menu.
He is also a pretty great fella!

Re: “Culinary Adventure

I was recently at Wildflower and learned that this chef is no longer there. Not sure who replaced him but the food is better than it has been in years.

Re: “Walking Tall

What a lousy break for Chef Martinez. I remember a few years back when the pastry chef at Chez Panisse's house was broken into and her box of recipes was one of the items stolen. Essentially, it was her life's work gone in a blink.
Chef, move all your recipe files to the cloud, on Google Drive or similar, from now on.

Re: “Desert Eats

$25 or $35? Ridiculous. Guess they aren't counting on many locals to show up.

Re: “On the rise

Father Kino was not a Spanish priest. He was born in Segno, a small village in Northern Italy. Although his name is Padre Eusebio Francisco Kino he took the name Francisco as he joined the Society of Jesus which was co-founded by his patron Saint Francisco Xavier. Father Kino was a Jesuit, not a Franciscan.

I love Ramona Farms and the Buttons, but Terry is a white guy, not a Lakota.

Re: “Goodbye, Frankie Cheesesteak

This is our 25th year in Tucson after immigrating from Philadelphia. Before Frankies, we were lost in a desert without a true Philly cheesesteak in sight and pretenders still asking if you wanted mayo on their faux concoctions. Here, in the Weekly, I stumbled across a notice that a cheesesteak place was opening. My thought was, "whatever." But then I saw that they were bringing in the rolls from Amoroso's back home. And, Frankie confirmed, they had cheeze whiz bubbling on the burner.

Frank was an institution who worked hard alongside his cooks and servers. He was an ambassador for the best Philadelphia has to offer. Cheesesteak, cheezewiz, wit. Sorry to hear of his passing.

Re: “Goodbye, Frankie Cheesesteak

Frankie was a true Philadelphian - gregarious, thoughtful, and open, he befriended many and most especially my late husband Newt Disney, another Phiadelphian. Newt or Diz treasured that friendship just as much as those Philly cheesesteaks wit, and hoagies which made you think you might just be in Philly with that first bite!

So sorry to hear this sad news. Frankie made the last years of my husbands life happier just as he did for so many in Tucson. Heres to Frankie!

Re: “Roll ’Em!

From out of town and we found Rollies Mexican Patio on Yelp. It was excellent! I got Tito's Burger and found it to be quite unique in how the patty was cooked. I loved the sauted onions, peppers and 'drowned cheese' effect. They even put on aome avocado for me! Excellent... Keep up the great work!

Re: “Trail Grazing

We stay at the Lodge and eat at Coyote Pause when we stay in the big city. The Lodge is a wonderful place for a weekend or more, with its own short hiking trails and close access to Tucson Mountain Park's trail system. The restaurant is a real jewel, using local ingredients in its menu items. I grew up not far from the Cat Mountain Lodge/Coyote Pause so it's a real treat to say there, eat there and to enjoy the Sonoran desert. And I remember Stan's Antique Museum back in the late 60s and early 70s. It had a sign out front advising passers-by of its free admission and another large sign at the museum exit next to a "donations" box announcing "this isn't a free museum." P. T. Barnum was right.

Re: “Meet and Greet

Yeah but the story says the website advertises Kennebecs but they are using Pure Gold.
