in the Catalinas
6440 N. Campbell Ave., Tucson,
Very easy to find from downtown, either up two main streets or up
Campbell or Main.
Definitely wear a tie. Get a reservation early, months
in advance, if you can. Great dinner, great wine list, smoking and cigar smoking
section that will not bother non-smokers, great view of the city, not hard to
find. Wine Spectator Magazines only Grand Award Winning Restaurant for Wine Selection
in the entire State of Arizona. Fantastic service, great food and dessert. You
will not be disappointed, except it is expensive ( very for older wines, but you
won't find them except in collector's cellars ). Winner of many national dining
awards, too. Truly an outstanding restaurant, equal or better than you will find
in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, or New Orleans. ( not far from the Sheraton
El Conquistador that I have stayed at four or five times for conventions and also
to visit Arizona University ).
Burton Rogers is there, ask for him. I have known him from Gene's Liquors in Saratoga,
to The Plumed Horse in Saratoga, to a great restaurant no longer in Monterey,
and since he is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced on wine I have ever
met, it will be your treat to meet him; a real character, too.
