Luxor Café Now Petra Mediterranean Grill

Petra Mediterranean Grill has opened in the space previously occupied by The Luxor Café at 3699 N. Campbell Ave. There's a change in the feel of the place, but Petra's food is similar in style to its predecessor's. The music has been toned down to create a more relaxed atmosphere, and the new management has done away with the dance floor. It seems as though there's been an effort to become a bit more upscale.

More Closures

The two Asian restaurants in the shopping center at the southwest corner of Fort Lowell Road and Campbell Avenue have closed. China Boy and Sushi King restaurants sat side by side. Although the lights are out, the restaurant furniture is still inside. Also, Amereno's Little Italy, 2933 E. Grant Road, has shut its doors permanently.


New Restaurant Staffing Up

The folks who brought us the Sawmill Run restaurant on Mount Lemmon are at it again. They are apparently assembling a staff for a new restaurant at 5750 S. Old Spanish Trail, in the building that housed the Saguaro Corners restaurant for more than 50 years. Plans include live music and a taco-centric menu. The owners are shooting for an opening in late March or early April.


Noble Hops Beer Dinners

Noble Hops will soon be offering monthly beer dinners, with dishes infused with—and served with— specialty beers from craft breweries. Each of the dinners at the gastropub, at 1335 W. Lambert Lane in Oro Valley, will highlight beers from a different brewery. The breweries on tap include Abita, Boulder, Lagunitas and Goose Island. For dinner dates and reservations, call 797-4677 or visit noblehopspub.com.
