Blue Willow Restaurant, Bakery & Gift Shop
Gift Certificate, yummy desert

2616 N Campbell Ave., Tucson, AZ 85719

Value $40
The days are warm, but not unbearably so. The nights are still cool, but not enough to be uncomfortable. Is there a better time of year to enjoy the patio at Blue Willow Restaurant, Bakery & Gift Shop?
The walled and occasionally covered patio at Blue Willow is perhaps the most charming attribute of many at this popular North Campbell Avenue restaurant. It is perhaps one of the most charming restaurant patios in town.
Blue Willow's little gift shop, with its eclectic collection of cards, jewelry and knickknacks, has its fans. There's no question it can be an amusing place to spend a few minutes before or after a meal. The inside dining area is also nice. It retains the cozy atmosphere of the home it obviously once was.
But Blue Willow's patio is hard to beat.
Nestled in the back of the restaurant, away from the roar and fumes of one of Tucson's busiest streets, the patio is a little a refuge. The flowers and fountain lend an air of a classic Mexican courtyard. Even on a busy weekend morning, when the demand for one of the precious tables is at its most acute, the gardenlike atmosphere invites lingering and a leisurely approach to the first meal of the day.

Value $50
Janos and J BAR are two restaurants owned and operated by Janos and Rebecca Wilder on the grounds of the Westin La Paloma Resort in Tucson, Arizona. Since its opening in 1983 in a Landmark adobe home in downtown Tucson, Janos has received national and international acclaim for original, trendsetting cuisine that marries the sensibility and subtlety of French cooking techniques with the ingredients of the American Southwest. Inspired by an array of local growers and using ingredients that have been cultivated in this region for the past 2000 years, the restaurants create beautiful dishes bursting with the rich, piquant flavors of the territory.

In 1998, the restaurant moved to its present location on the grounds of the Westin La Paloma Resort and Spa, one of the nation´s premiere, luxury golf destinations where it is housed in a free standing building with spectacular views overlooking the entire Tucson Valley.

Operating under the same roof as Janos, J BAR was opened in 1999 as a more casual, less expensive alternative to the fine dining Janos. J BAR celebrates the conviviality of the shared table with the zesty flavors of Latin America, Southern Arizona and the Caribbean.
