On July 1st, the venerable Tohono Chul Park Tea Room will have a new name and operating partners. The new name, Tohono Chul Garden Bistro, was chosen to better reflect the beautiful garden and patio surroundings that make it a Tucson favorite.
The new operating partners will be Jason Hartenbach of River’s Edge catering and Patrick Fahey, Chef and restaurateur of establishments like Keaton’s and The Ocotillo Café at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. The menu will be updated, but old favorites won’t go away completely.
As long as they keep the Prickly Pear Margarita.
There isn’t a more beautiful place to enjoy casual fine dining than in the enclosed courtyard or the rear hummingbird gardens of the (soon to be) Tohono Chul Park Garden Bistro. I’m always surprised at how many Tucsonans have never been to the Park and enjoyed the shops, art, classes, trips, and events offered there. Passing by on Ina, the 40 acres of trails can look like a huge vacant desert area when in reality it’s an award-winning botanical garden. It’s well worth the trip.
