Coming to Downtown: Medusa Kabob House

Posted By on Thu, Dec 16, 2010 at 10:00 AM

This morning, I was driving down Fourth Avenue—and marveling at the number of new dining and drinking joints that have opened downtown—when I noticed yet another new eatery called Medusa Kabob House setting up in the old Casbah Tea House location at 628 N. Fourth Ave.

Downtown has welcomed Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails, Empire Pizza and Pub, Mr. Head's Art Gallery and Bar, Rice House and Café Desta in recent months. HUB Restaurant and Ice Creamery and Sparkroot are also coming soon, and then there's the bakery, taco stand, market, snow-cone vendor, Argentinean restaurant and cocktail lounge opening at Mercado San Agustin.

Oh, and I almost forgot 47 Scott and the adjoined Scott and Co., and the massive An Congress going in at the corner of Congress Street and Fifth Avenue. We've also heard that the owner of Time Market is opening a restaurant that will serve sandwiches and beer somewhere along Congress Street, and that Ramiro Scavo —who used to be executive chef for Hacienda del Sol, Zona 78 and Harvest Restaurant—plans to open a new restaurant near the UA before long.

Boca, O'Hungry's Restaurant and Mama's Hawaiian Barbecue have also opened in the area this year.

It's a great and exciting time to eat and drink downtown. And if there's nothing down there that suits your fancy now, wait a few months. You never know what'll pop up next.

(A quick note to the Arizona Daily Star's food writers: Now that you have published stunningly slobbering accounts of the announcement, build-up and opening of Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails - not to mention today's do-no-wrong review—could you lay off the effusive stories about Janos Wilder for a while? Please? It's getting nauseating. That is all.)
