Re: “Distill My Heart

"galinked" -- I AM one of the people behind the origins of The Independent Distillery, and I assure you that none of us have "taken our names away from the place" at our own accord. The people "now running the place" are the same people who started it WITH US, and it's a travesty how things have ended up. So, yes... I CAN tell you that the information that the General Manager, Ben Haynes, gave to the writer was untrue, as he intended to paint himself as someone far more important that he really was. He's the GM. Nothing more. And, I absolutely do NOT blame the writer. In fact, I would love nothing more than to vindicate him from the backlash he received from this portion of the article, for he wrote what he was told. The writer did his job and did nothing wrong. His coverage of the other distilleries was outstanding, and I couldn't be more proud of them for their success.

Re: “Bosnian Delights

I have never in my life had a better dish of Beef Stew soup. I'm not sure exactly what it was but it was the best ever ever ever!!! I rarely eat meat but did.

Re: “Mother Knows Best

DAMN YOU MARK! LOL This has been my spot since it opened. Now it is going to be over-run with tourists. I hope the food doesn't suffer under the weight of the increased customer load. It has always done steady business but has been calm enough to relax at. It's a small space and will easily be overwhelmed. All selfishness aside, this is the best chorizo burrito in town and very affordable but I imagine the prices will go up along with the lines.... :-)

Re: “The Treasure of Tapas

WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE INCREDIBLE FLAMENCO GUITAR PLAYER? DID HE OWN THE PLACE AND WHAT WAS HIS NAME? WHY DID THE PLACE CLOSE? DID IT RELOCATE TO ANOTHER CITY?

Re: “Reign in Tacos

The problem at Boca isnt the food. The service is terrible and the margaritas and warm beer while you wait 45min-1hr for the food is the problem. The manager/bartender with the man bun has an attitude problem and the overall dining experience gets ruined by his behavior. My family and friends avoid this place. Too many great tacos in Tucson to put up with a complete lack of service.

Re: “Sausage Party

Grill the brats before simmering them in beer. Grilling preserves the flavor.
You're welcome.

Re: “Inca Inspiration

We went Friday night with another couple and despite some issues with the kitchen getting slammed, the food was well seasoned, well prepared and the staff was on top of any issues.

Re: “Reign in Tacos

@average joe - I have to think that you haven't been to the restaurant, and the article is unintentionally misleading you. My wife and I ate there two nights ago and each of us had 2 fresh, imaginative tacos and 2 PBRs for $20 including taxes. The people eating with us sure didn't look like rich folk and we certainly aren't, and it was certainly a very pleasant space.
