Tucson Weekend Recommendations

citydock2000 Nov 23, 2008 08:38 PM

I'm planning a Friday - Sunday weekend trip Dec 5 - 7 to Tucson with my husband - we'll be staying at the Marriott Starr Pass Resort . I've been looking at the boards and decided I don't want to miss Cafe Poca Cosa probably for lunch on Saturday.

Are any of the restaurants at the Marriott worth considering?

I was thinking we might go to the Loft for a Saturday night movie - any restaurants near there?

Also, coffee shops that would be fun to go to on Sunday morning.... ?

We like a casual place with some atmosphere - I'm hoping for a little romance! so anywhere we could linger over dinner and just relax would be great. It would be nice if it's in a pretty location. We like any ethnic, seafood, steak... pretty flexible on the type of food, as long as it's great and relaxing atmosphere. Price isn't a huge consideration just looking for a memorable weekend.

    The Dish is practically across the street from the Loft theater and they're amazing! http://www.dishbistro.com/

    Great food, great wine and a really romantic atmosphere. Good luck!

      Primo at the StarrPass Marriott is very good, especially apps, desserts, pizza, breads. The only thing I haven't liked is the saltimboca, even though it's a house specialty.

      Sunday am: Blue Willow (great shop, coffee), Cup Cafe (great atmosphere), B-Line (great pies and coffee).

      Casual, romantic atmosphere: NoRTH, Montana Ave., Primo's patio.
