On my first overnight research trip to Tucson, friends took me to downtown to eat. It’s funky, it’s got an attitude, it’s probably not for everyone, but this place had me at two words : BLT pasta.

These photos were taken last Wednesday on one of many follow-up visits.

I’m sure they have other great dishes – in fact, I’ve heard people say they quite enjoy their food – but I think I’m set. And yes, the leftovers are awesome fresh out of the hotel microwave the morning after.
