Janos Wilder Announces Opening Date for DOWNTOWN Kitchen + Cocktails, Holds Preview Benefiting the Humane Society and Wants to Feed You a Free Meal

Posted By on Fri, Oct 8, 2010 at 9:34 AM

The big news is that Janos Wilder's new restaurant, DOWNTOWN Kitchen + Cocktails, is set to open Monday, Oct. 18. It will occupy the former Barrio Food and Drink space at 135 S. Sixth Ave., and by all accounts will serve some damn fine food and drinks.

The second biggest news is that Wilder wants to try out the restaurant’s menu on a few people before the official opening. It’s a sort of warm-up for the staff starting Monday, Oct. 11, and continuing for three or four days. E-mail Info@DOWNTOWNKitchen.com to be considered. More information here.

Lastly, Wilder is holding a preview/fundraiser at the restaurant at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 14. Proceeds benefit the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, which means you’ll have bragging rights for helping out local animals AND being one of the first people to try the restaurant's food, which Wilder has described as "the flavors of the new American melting pot." A limited number of reservations are available, and admission is $75. Call 623-7700 for reservations or more information.
