No-longer-Chubby Hubby and I went to Tucson again, and had terrific fish dinners everywhere! Well, at these two places anyways:
Primo is Melissa Kelly's place at the new JW Marriott StarrPass Resort, with widely-spaced tables in an upscale setting, but the servers and backgroud music were surprisingly young - in a good way. NCH's halibut was nicely cooked, but bland. My branzino (which I elected to have cooked whole and not deboned) was strong-tasting but delicious (you can have the chef debone it, but then where's the fun in that?) Dessert was a refreshing goat cheese cheesecake with the best almond tuile I'd ever had (and my hips show that I've had plenty!).
The next night I had delicious trout at Montana Avenue - an all-around winner for food, decor, service. Usually, trout is pretty boring - like tilapia, perch, and cardboard (it's for people who don't like fish). The lightly-breaded and pan-fried trout was actually very good - tastier than NCH's chicken enchiladas with havarti fondue (but he liked it).
Next time we'll try Kingfisher - I've heard good things about it, but the exterior looks funky, especially after seeing Montana Avenue. I'd love to get comparisons from anyone who's tried both places. TIA!
