Noshing Tucson: The Full Monty and Deals

News about Tucson restaurants:

New Concept: From Kosher to Karaoke?
Sabra Mediterranean Restaurant and then Sabra Pizzeria is now Monty’s Bistro & Pizzeria, same owner.

The restaurant shed its “kosher” identity along the way. The grand opening is Feb. 24. Every day is a different special: Sunday boasts a 14-inch NY style pizza for $12; Mondays bring lasagna with a house salad and garlic bread for $7; Tuesdays special is Moroccan cous cous soup with chicken for $7; Wednesdays special is moussaka with red sauce and baked beans for $7; Thursdays special is stuffed artichoke hearts with French onion soup for $7; Fridays special is Asian stir-fry for $7; and Saturday’s special is a Mediterranean sampler plate for – you guessed it — $7.

Does that mean we’ve gone the full Monty?

Karaoke is coming and weekend entertainment plus a full bar at the same location – 4210 E Speedway Blvd; 795-6060; open daily 11 a.m. to closing. (no more closed on Sabbath)
Deals on Meals

I found this interesting blog called Tucson on the Cheap touting a 4-day deal at Ristorante Italia where you get a choice of soup or salad, steak, side dish, and dessert for $19.95. Check it out. The bargain is only good through 2/26.

J Bar has some recession busters. For $20, try the Certified Angus Rib-Eye (12 oz) grilled and served with all the J BAR trimmings of salsa fresca, cilantro chili slaw, garlic fries, chorizo black beans and hand stretched flour tortillas

Or for $12.95:
Dos Pollos – New Mexican flat enchilada with chicken mole served with crisp chicken and cheddar flauta, sour cream, scallions and salsa fresca;

Seafood Tamales – Two steamed tamales stuffed with achiote-lime roasted white fish served on habanero-corn cream with shrimp-black bean pico de gallo and pineapple rice
