It's 10 on Friday night and you're hungry, but you don't want to wolf down your food while the staff stands around yawning. And you think you might like something of a briny nature. Well, you want Kingfisher, a little corner of New Orleans sensibility planted among the lumberyards and automotive shops on East Grant Road. Everything there is ridiculously delicious, but seafood is the standout--always impeccably fresh and prepared with love. We go for the mussels steamed in white wine and garlic, a dish of such virtue that, for once, words fail us. Every year, Kingfisher hosts a Mardi Gras party that kicks off with The World's Shortest Mardi Gras Parade--two doors down to Nonie and back. It's about the most fun you can have in Tucson.
