Chef Alisah"s Tucson: Have you been?

A friend from Tucson is recommending, Good Yelp reviews, wondering what you Hounds think.

We are searching for an unusual interesting great food experience for a big birthday this winter, Not fancy, just wonderful. Sounds like this place might fit the bill, especially on wednesday for the lamb special???

    I haven't been in a year and a half, but if "not fancy, just wonderful" is the goal, I think Chef Alisah is a great choice. It's the sort of low-frills international restaurant that I miss from my Boston days, and wish existed in more plentitude in the Southwest. Friendly staff, excellent food, not too weird or challenging. Here's my take from 2011:

      Chef Alisah's is very casual, a mom-and-pop gem.

      If you are going for the lamb dinner, be sure to call and confirm with them. Last time we went, we brought our own wine too.

          On Oracle you will have supermarkets, Cost Plus, Total Wine, and BevMo - all eager to sell Wine to you.

          The day before is probably enough time.
