West End Class

12 May

My partner and I stopped into Augustin Brasserie, at the Mercado San Agustin, west of I-10 on Congress Avenue, last weekend for Sunday brunch. It was a quiet afternoon. We could actually carry on a conversation without yelling across the table. While they were out of salmon, the wait staff was very gracious and friendly. My water glass was always full.  The ambience is like nothing else in Tucson. I was transported to another place. The food was divine. And reasonable.

Another place for Tucsonans to be proud of!  I can’t wait to go back, with friends in tow!

I anxiously await three additional restaurants to open downtown – two on Broadway and one in the famed art deco spot across from Poca Cosa on Pennington. Each week I take a peek into the windows to eye the progress. It is slow, but it is progress.
