The Curious Kumquat Review

The little café inside this international grocery is a delightful find. Salads and sandwiches are fresh and tasty and anything but run-of-the-mill; prix-fixe dinners are locally sourced and creative, in the vein of pork belly with hibiscus-pickled onions or papas rellenos with plum picadilla; the Attack of the Killer Tomato Basil Bisque is fantastic. Outdoor seating under big, shady trees in the summer is great, or grab lunch to go before heading into the Gila. Lighter tapas are served Thursday through Saturday evenings.

    Café at the Kumquat Review

    The previous description doesn't tell the whole story. I've had lunch there many times and its great and inexpensive. But, they started doing dinners in the spring of 2010 and it is hands-down the best dinner in town. I would put it up against Jennifer James in ABQ and NOCA in PHX. They use locally sourced foods and prepare them in a molecular gastronomy style. Simply superb.
