Almost tried Blanco for lunch today..
Stupid me.....IIwent to North just across the way @ La Encantada.
I went w/ the familiar as we have a North in Scottsdale....I knew what I was getting.
I had no idea Blanco was a Fox Restaurant.
I am down in Tucson @ a conference this week...when I arrived back @ the meeting I overheard a few ofthe conference attendees say they had the Fish Taco's @ Blanco and the were the best they had ever had.....
I am bummed......I am heading home tomorrow....
I will have to try Blanco on another Visit....or Maybe Sam Fox will open a location in Phx soon!!!

I would say it is your classic Fox Concepts Restaurant. Good affordable food, with a chic interior, and great service. My only knock was the margs, but I am pretty picky about them. I asked the server if they use mix and she said no just lime juice, which is what I like, tequila, cointreau, lime, and maybe a small amount of simple syrup. However, it was clear they use a sour mix, to their defense they make there own sour mix with fresh lime juice but I still was not a fan. The next time I went they were more than happy to oblige me with the ingredients I like, in fact the bartender sent out the tequila in a glass with shots of cointreau, simple syrup and the sour mix so that I could mix it myself. Now that is service!!! I am not one to make people at a restaurant go out of their way and all I had asked for was a little less sour mix nothing more and they went a step further. I thought that was pretty nice of them. In the end I think it is definitely worth a try especially if you like Fox's other restaurants.
