Introducing El Crisol

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.

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.
