Tinto Review

The talented Jose Garces, a Food Channel Iron Chefs winner and the recipient of a James Beard Award, takes small plates to a new level at Tinto, his Spanish Basque wine bar in the Saguaro Hotel. Garces concocts such delightfully exotic items as bleu de Basque cheese, marinated white anchovies with pine nuts, succulent pork belly, and a mini short-rib sandwich with celery aioli. Order two or three plates per person and share, or select the chef's tasting menu, available with wine pairing. This is a fun place where tables are closely spaced, so dinner becomes a party. The extensive wine list showcases Spanish vintages.
