Rumors in the world of food writing are about as reliable as lunaception, but it’s fun to talk about them from time to time anyway.
The most recent rumor is that there is talk of bringing a location of Sam Fox’s restaurant True Food Kitchen to Tucson. I would like it if that would happen. While you’re at it, bring us a location of Culinary Dropout, too.
The other rumor is that another brewery is opening downtown. This is the sort of rumor with clout, being that it comes from a reliable rumor-spreader who happens to own a couple of downtown businesses. But I can’t talk about it yet, because, yes, it’s still a rumor.
There’s also a rumor that a new café is opening inside St. Phillip’s Plaza. We’re not sure about the name yet, but it’s locally owned and supposed to be quite nice.
And lastly, we heard yesterday that the new Brushfire BBQ location on the east side could open as early as next Monday. “That’s a best-case scenario, though,” said the person we talked to. So, yeah, that’s sort of rumorish, too.
