Purposeful Fare

Picture-58ARIZONA GOURMET LIVING: SPRING 2009 - Shaping New American and Fusion meals with a twist at Café 54 is no obstacle for Executive Chef Michael McCord—it's a passion shared with fellow employee trainees in a program the venue provides for adults recovering from mental illnesses.

In addition to illuminating downtown Tucson with its fine cuisine, Café 54 also houses a unique program for adults recovering from mental illnesses. Showcasing his years of hands-on experience with food and his ability to teach cooking as a job coach for employee trainees, Executive Chef Michael McCord crafts our Meal of the Season—Grilled Asparagus Spring Rolls. But the meal
doesn’t end there.

Outstanding cafe with easy parking next door‎

You just gotta go here. This is an unusual establishment in that is a non-profit that assists those with mental illness to mainstream into society -- in the guise as an outstanding restaurant. (One poster on the wall reads: "They didn't call Abraham Lincoln mentally ill; they called him 'Mr. President') It is run by mental health professions and two or three classically trained chefs. All of this explains both the modest prices and the amazing quality and tastiness. It's not creepy or sterile, but rather bright, cheery, and comfortable. Good enough to visit every other day when I am in town for the gem show.
