15.Quince Says Goodbye to Jerome and Opens Up Shop in Cottonwood


We have some good news and some bad news to report. OK, first, the bad news: 15.Quince in Jerome has officially left the building. The popular eatery is no longer serving up its tasty tacos and delicious margaritas out of its old Main Street location. 15.Quince lovers, fear not. Here’s the good news: 15.Quince has relocated to a bigger and better space in Cottonwood, just a few miles down the hill from Jerome. Fans of 15.Quince can expect the same amazing food, as well as a few additions to owner Vladimir Costa’s menu.

Talk about another great reason to stop in Cottonwood!

15.Quince is located at 747 S. Main Street in Cottonwood. For more information, call 928-634-7087.

In the Area: Vivace in Tucson

Next time you’re hungry and near the Catalina Foothills in Tucson, pop by Vivace for a bite to eat. I happened to be in the area along with Mark Lipczynski (one of our contributing photographers… check out our “Hometowns” page to see his photographs) working on an upcoming story, when our subject — who will be part of our September issue — suggested we nosh at Vivace before hitting the road again.

The place has an excellent — and affordable — lunch menu. Think pizza, salads and other specialty dishes like roasted eggplant. Besides good food, the service was outstanding. Our server was funny, attentive and fast. Vivace is clearly a neighborhood favorite: the place was bustling.

Notes from a Foodie

Liberty Market, Gilbert. Photograph by Paul Markow.

Here, we present a Q&A with the author of our April cover story, Nikki Buchanan. While we’d love to show you her pretty face, we just can’t — you know, to preserve her anonymity. So, we’ll show you the image from our April cover instead.

What are some of your favorite comfort foods? Fried chicken is No. 1; meatloaf and mashed potatoes; mac & cheese, chocolate; or almost anything involving butter, cheese, sour cream or whipped cream.

If you could only have two comfort food items every day for the rest of your life what would they be? Potatoes and chocolate.

Are there any recipes that you’ve had handed down in your family for several generations? My maternal grandmother’s peach cobbler and my Aunt Dimp’s sour cream cake (only one generation but it will live on).

What’s the biggest or most time-consuming meal you’ve ever made? Thanksgiving for a boatload of people.

What’s your favorite part about going out to eat? Being with friends, people-watching and of course, eating!

Do you prefer making food or going out? Why? Depends on the day. Friday and Saturday nights, I want to go out. Sunday, I want to make something special and stay home.

One of Arizona Highways‘ “Best Restaurants” from 2010 is now offering lunch. This release comes via Flagstaff’s Tinderbox Kitchen.

Lunch is Back at Tinderbox!

Ready to launch into the spring with a fresh start to their mid-day service, Tinderbox Kitchen is serving lunch once again from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Monday thru Friday.

The 50-seat restaurant had an energizing winter season with the addition of its new bar, the Annex, and it’s only natural to keep the momentum going. A shift in seasons is an exciting time in Flagstaff and the Tinderbox management feels it’s the best time to ramp up for this next wave of change – once again, satisfying a lunch crowd which is always hungry for Chef Scott’s satiating meals.

In addition to exploring the newly beautified Southside district, patrons can look forward to the intimate patio once it becomes sun-kissed and warm again.

For more information on Tinderbox, the Annex, or lunch and dinner hours, visit them at
TinderboxKitchen.com or call 928-226-8400.
