We remember when Janos had two restaurants at the Westin off Sunrise. Maybe he sensed something but he moved “downtown” and opened a more casual restaurant. His menu however continues to present very creative options. Our waitress described them as “comfort food with a southwestern...More

We went here prior to attending the Masao Yamamoto opening at the Etherton Gallery this past week and were absolutely delighted with the entire experience. The staff was wonderful and very attentive. We started with Pork Belly Donuts, BBQ Garlic Shrimp ‘N’ Cheesy Grits, and...More

This is the second time we have dined at Downtown K&C. First of all, don't go on "First Thursdays", because parking is impossible. This is a nice restaurant with average food. You get home and can't remember what you had; you don't long to go...More

Everything on menu is special. Quail, calamari and duck appetizers were so good! Outside in Tucson it is 75 degrees in January. Service is perfect. Free parking next door.

One of the "most consistent" restaurants in Tucson or anywhere. Always different menu with care and taste that you can experience everytime you go... perfect to take "out of town" guests and walk around downtown Tucson after dinner.

Visiting Tucson for a cycling vacation brought us to dine here. While I applaud all the gluten free options, the menu was very meat-centric. My salad was full of giant beans with hardly a green in site, and my husband's pork was half filled with...More
