Graceful. Elegant. Poetic. Pure. These are some of the words that are often used to describe the swan, and this week’s broadcast came to you live from the place that bears its name, El Cisne!

Phil Ferranti, Matt Russell, Rita Connelly & George Ferranti

Our celebrity co-host was Rita Connelly, the Well-Fed Foodie herself, who shared some fun stories from her new book, Historic Restaurants of Tucson. Tony Williams of BlackRock Brewers also joined us to chat a bit about the upcoming Tucson Craft Beer Crawl and how he’s preparing for this epic event. El Cisne’s own George Ferranti then sat down with us to talk tequila, which is always the topic of conversation at El Cisne’s Black Swan Tequila Bar, as well as his plans for Valentine’s Day!

Tequilas y mezcales. Si!

Senor Phil Ferranti then walked us through El Cisne’s menu, a tribute to the delicious regions of Mexico; the Northern Region, the Tropical South, and the Baja Coast. The swan has a soul, and its name is El Cisne!
