We had the privilege of dining at the historic Skyline Country Club in Tucson’s Catalina Foothills. The cuisine was prepared by award-winning chef, Chef Issa Moussa and his staff, and was absolutely delicious. The city views were spectacular, and the atmosphere was relaxing.

We stopped in Rincon Market recently and had a delicious “Miller’s Melt” sandwich and a salad. Both were fresh and tasty. The atmosphere there at The Village at Sam Hughes (where Rincon Market is located) is interesting and comfortable. Just a minute or two from the University of Arizona in Tucson.
People were out at La Encantada Shopping Center in Tucson’s Catalina Foothills tonight enjoying food and drinks. University of Arizona Head Football Coach Mike Stoops was one of them. There are several places to eat and drink, including RA Sushi, North, Armitage Wine Lounge & Café, Blanco Tacos and Tequila, Firebird’s Wood Fired Grill, Red Velvet Cupcakery, Frost, and AJ’s Fine Foods (where they have a nice fireplace outside).
Their last day open at their St. Philips location was Thursday, January 13th. They opened the new Acacia just yesterday on Friday, January 14th. They are now located at Gallery Row, 3001 E. Skyline Drive. Find them on the Northeast corner of Skyline and Campbell.
New digs, new menu, same quality food and drink. We had the mahi-mahi tacos with a roasted jalapeno pepper, and calamari tonight. Both were excellent. They have the best view in Tucson, overlooking the city lights from nearly 3000 feet above sea level in the Catalina Foothills.
You will find delicious Mexican cuisine at Cafe Poca Cosa on Pennington Street in downtown Tucson. Upscale, yet casual atmosphere. Friendly, attentive, and informed staff. We recommend the Chef’s sample plate if you visit for lunch.
