Tucson restaurant news
Bobby Flay’s Tucson
I heard the Bobby Flay was in Tucson last night and ate at El Charro, just walked in like anybody else. What was he doing in Tucson? I hope he gets to try some other local restaurant institutions too.
What are the top three local restaurants you take out of town guests to and why? What other local Tucson restaurants would you recommend to Bobby Flay?
This summer long event pairs Tucson’s best chefs and most gracious restaurateurs from Tucson Originals with a worthy community cause – the Primavera Foundation. This nonprofit organization helps the homeless by providing food, shelter, and job training. Several years ago my friends and I served Christmas dinner at their men’s shelter. What was amazing to me at the time was that the majority of homeless men were veterans…so very sad.
For Primavera Cooks! you can get involved as a diner, apprentice chef, or apprentice sommelier. I have been a diner at Feast and an apprentice chef at Kingfisher Bar & Grill. Both were amazing experiences but if you like to cook – get into the kitchen and throw your proverbial soul into the frying pan. It’s more fun (and exhaustion) than mere mortals are allowed to have. Become a fan of Primavera Cooks on Facebook now and you can enter to win two free dinners at the May 19 dinner at J-BAR (their contest, not mine)
Here are the participating restaurants:
- J-Bar – May 19
- Feast – June 7
- Maynard’s – June 16
- Pastiche – June 21
- Jax Kitchen – June 30
- Acacia – August 11
- Janos – August 26
- Lodge on the Desert -September 8

Coming up next…delicious summer time deals so you don’t get the Tucson summertime blues.
