Tucson hidden gem is open for dinner
Cafe a la Carte is now open for dinner, and it's a real gem: lovely rooms, easy parking, good service, and eclectic menu. The specials tonight were surf and turf, cajun pasta, and something I couldn't remember. Even though the salmon in my salad was a bit over-cooked, I highly recommended this place: http://www.tucsonmuseumofart.org/visi...
BTW: I just had the worst lunch at Teresa's Mosaic - has it gone downhill after the remodel? I ordered carne asado tacos (to compare them with the others I'd had in town) and the waitress brought me some inedibly dry carnitas tacos and told me that's what I had ordered! I'd always found the food uneven, but coupled with bad service is the last straw.
I'm thrilled to hear Cafe à la C'Art is still delicious. I went there very frequently for lunch in my bright college days, and it was every bit the hidden gem then that it still is now. Darn it, now I want their apricot chicken salad sandwich with those heavenly fries they turn out.
