We returned this week to one of our very favorite destinations for Manhattans, martinis and prime Cote du Boeuf…Bob’s Steak & Chop House at the Omni Tucson National Resort.

Our celebrity co-host this week was Adam Lehrman, AKA the Tucson Foodie, who shared all the developments on the local food and beverage scene that he thinks are making news. We also checked in with Bob’s general manager, the lovely Andrea Bravo, who walked us through her craft cocktail program and lovingly libated us with both a classic Manhattan and a Southern Hospitality! Our featured guest was Omni Tucson’s Executive Chef Jonathan Stutzman. In addition to talking poetically about prime beef, Chef unveiled some of his house-made jams and jellies which we had the chance to sample. Bacon marmalade, yes please! That was a lovely prelude to our tasting, which included tenderloin with blue cheese and local mesquite honey, blue cheese chips, some gorgeous calamari, and the aforementioned and magnificent Cote du Boeuf. And “magnificent” is the one word that always sums up our experience at Bob’s!
