Things one should know: this restaurant has new owners so many past reviews don't apply anymore. The actual turnover date here is unknown to me but it's 2014 or later. This was a premier restaurant in Tucson. I doubt it's still considered that. Now it's...More

I don't know who the owner of the restaurant is; but I believe that the manager is the young woman who is there each night. I don't remember her name.
