At the end of another delicious year, we celebrated 2016 in all of its epicurean excellence at a restaurant that helped to define Tucson’s food-forward culture more than two decades ago: Pastiche!

Cole Connors, Jessica Nenadic, Matt Russell & Chef Tim More

Our celebrity co-host was Jessica Nenadic of Young’s Market Company who talked bubbles, the year’s top beverage news, and her predictions on what would dominate the libation landscape next year. We also sat down with Pastiche’s own Cole Connors who unveiled his new cocktail menu and talked about the restaurant’s impressive whiskey collection.
