If you’re looking for Central American food, your next stop should be Selena’s Salvadorian Restaurant.

Mediterranean Accent

Several of Commoner & Co's new dishes are decidedly Mediterranean in spirit, and their resemblance to the flavors I fell for while sailing across the region is uncanny.

Boots and Bites

Don’t judge a club by its cover. Whiskey Roads is a pathway to unexpectedly good comfort fare and well executed cocktails. But you still won’t catch me line dancing anytime soon.

Hot Spot

Given its slick design, televised menus, courteous staff and counter service, you could be forgiven for thinking that the eastside’s Salsa Verde is some kind of chain.

Introducing El Crisol

During his countless trips Oaxaca, Mexico, Exo Roast and Exo Bar founder Doug Smith realized the variety of mezcal—and therefore what there is to learn about mezcal—is almost limitless. This depth is the reason behind two new changes at Exo Bar: a name change to El Crisol and a new series of private mezcal tastings.

New Brew

The sophomore slump seems to be nowhere in sight for Tap & Bottle’s second annual Invitational Beer Festival. Not only will the event host multiple local brewers, but breweries from multiple other states will attend as well.

Keep Guam and Carry On

Welcome back, Hungry Kepuha. We’ve missed you and your delicious food.

The Sweet Spot

Heemee Bakery is a lovely shop on the corner of Stone and Congress more akin to something you’d find in a quaint small town or tucked away in an Asian neighborhood.

Bread & Better

Five years ago, Prep & Pastry opened in a tightly recessed nook on the corner of Campbell Avenue and Hedrick Street. Its meteoric rise to Tucson fame, fanned by praise from satisfied diners and food bloggers, was a boon to owners Nathan Ares, Brian Pracko, Billy Kovacs and William Meinke, but a headache for those looking to get a seat at their popular weekend brunches. Prep & Pastry shared a parking lot with an antique furniture store and seed depot, both of which had their own draw. To put it mildly, even on slow days, parking was rather limited.

Bravo, Zulu

Oftentimes when an established eatery up and relocates to a far-off location, the results can be disastrous. Moving from the busy arena of Broadway and Camino Seco to a near-hidden spot in a strip mall on Wrightstown Road just off North Pantano Road could have spelled doom for the beloved BZs Pizza. Turns out, the whole move was a solid upgrade for them.

Quick Bites

Culinary experiences to fill out your week.

Quaint Possible

Whether you call it Puckle's Place, Café Sonoita or just The Cafe, this is pure belly-filling and heart-warming eating.

Tried and ’Cue

It’s safe to say we now have a barbeque scene. Please, give yourselves a pat on the collective back. It’s taken a bit of time, along with some success and failure, but it is nice to say we have a roster of pitmasters with various regional skills creating slow-cooked masterpieces.

Queen of Tarts

When a friend of mine handed me a lemon cookie from a catering service known as Mad Batter Bakery, I swooned over the tangy, frosted treat.

Quick Bites

The best brews and meals you can find this week.

Walking Tall

Just 10 days after Tito & Pep opened in November 2018, vandals hurled bricks and stones through their large window facing Speedway Boulevard.
