listen up, you all! We have in our midst one fabulous restaurant, a relatively new arrival I'm bustin' to tell you about. Had a fabulous meal at LINEN, an independently owned upscale restaurant located in the Casas Adobes Plaza at Ina and Oracle. A newly renovated space (formerly Landmark Cafe) with indoor and outdoor seating, smallish indeed, beautifully appointed, low noise level, great service that was unobtrusive, and a chef from HEAVEN!!! He has worked at Charley Trotter's in Chicago, Ventana Canyon, and, I believe, Janos (not sure of that). It's moderatly expensive but such a deal!! I ordered the Chef's Choice Menu and had four fabulous courses with four wines to accompany each. (the bottles had not yet been opened and are brought to the table-my son, who ordered from the menu, was also astounded to see that the bottles of the wines he chose by the glass were also brought to the table). The meal with wine (chef's choice menu) was $75.00. Try getting that elsewhere in Tucson. We wound up comparing our meals to a meal we had shared at The French Laundry! Now that may tell ya something. Yes, we had a few little negative criticisms, but they were minor. Minor. I hope that those of you who can, will patronize this place. Oh, and by the way, the staff was really friendly and not at all pretentious.
