58 Degrees, the Sequel

Last week, a scaled-down 58 Degrees and Holding Co. opened at St. Philip's Plaza (4280 N. Campbell Ave., No. 27) in the former Adobe Wine Deli. Nicolas Mills, who previously was the sommelier at the Ventana Room, is the new manager; 529-2020. We also heard a wild rumor yet to be confirmed that 58 Degrees is considering turning the former Ovens Restaurant into a chic lounge and wine bar.

Slow Food Film Festival

Mark your calendars for Jan. 13-15 for the first weekend event devoted to classic food films, foodie celebrities, culinary events and cultural discussions. For the schedule and prices, check out www.slowfoodtucson.org.

Gourmet Hanukkah Takeout

We have never been able to master the fine art of latke (potato pancake); this year, Feast Tasteful Takeout can do the honors. The caveat is you must pre-order the food by Dec. 20, and then can pick it up on Dec. 24. Hanukkah starts Dec. 25. Choices include latkes, brisket with root vegetable tsimmes, noodle kugel with raisins and more. Call 326-9363 for specifics and to order.


Livorno's Italian Bistro on Oracle is closed. Why? Could be the location; it's an odd one. Also closing soon is Romi's Mexican Food on South Sixth Avenue and Wild Wings and Other Things on Speedway Boulevard.

Westin La Paloma's Christmas Day Brunch

The holiday tradition features a buffet overflowing with favorites to satisfy everyone in the family. Options range from juicy, slow-roasted beef and leg of lamb to fresh Atlantic salmon and holiday ham. There's also a lavish seafood display and pasta station, along with numerous side dishes, fresh salads and baked breads. Freshly baked pies and éclairs, homemade cookies, bread pudding and cheesecake are offered for dessert. Call 577-5868 for reservations. The cost is $45 for adults; children 6-12 are $19; children younger than 5 are free.
