There's been a liquor license application in the queue recently for a place called Heist No. 43, located at 7131 E. Broadway (the former home of a Big Fat Greek Restaurant that always seemed busy, but you never know). The license application was under the name of a company that does that sort of thing, the corporation under the name of some guy in Phoenix who has a Google trail of a bunch of business names and not much else. So, while the information about what Heist No. 43 is actually going to be was out there somewhere, it wasn't immediately apparent.
Anyhow, a long story, but now we know a little more about the place. It's apparently a pizza place (the Facebook page, which went up on July 9, promises white truffle oil and Peroni on tap, for what that's worth, although I didn't know people liked Peroni that much) and it's the third Tucson restaurant from Aaron May (chicken-and-waffles joint May's Counter and house-of-massive-portions Lodge Sasquatch, being the first two). I was on Matt Russell's radio food show on Saturday and we interviewed May, who mentioned that he had two things in the works, a Tucson location of breakfast concept Over Easy and something else he wasn't ready to talk about yet. One of those concepts is scheduled to open before the end of the year...odds are that's Heist.
More info when we get it.
