New Location

When we moved from our original to our current location in 2010, we kept you posted along the way.

put a lid on it, part I

For the past few weeks, we and our guests have been treated to a delightful quirk on our way in the front door, and nothing whets the appetite quite like the noxious vapors of rancid grease warmed by the Arizona sun emanating from a grease trap .  So far, the lids to the grease trap have […]

nothing sparkles like a shining star

I have a wild-eyed look most days lately, and I did the other day when the gentleman on this card approached me.  “Mr. Doug,” he said, “I was just next door talking to Mr. Ed (who I presume was Ed from SWS and not a talking horse) and he suggested I come and see you.  […]

my relationship with new technology

Two weeks ago, which in restaurant opening time feels like 7-10 months ago, a guy came out from Open Table and loaded up a computer for us.  Over the course of an hour and a half, he explained to us pretty much everything this system can do, with three of us watching over his shoulder, […]

never trust a line cook
