The Garland is Gone, Soon to Be Replaced by Zemam's Second Venture?

Posted By on Wed, Jun 26, 2013 at 4:25 PM

The Garland was one of the first counter-culture restaurants in Tucson. I’m not sure when they opened but I know I ate there when my daughter was a baby and she turned thirty-five in February. It was veggie oriented with big salads, crepes, baked goods and what not.

Well, in doing a little bit of “presearch” for an upcoming review I called only to find that the number was no longer in service. There was no Facebook page either, even though there was a website. The menu on the website seemed to include a whole passel of new dishes including Vietnamese food and sushi. The omelets and crepes and salads were all there but the new stuff seemed a bit odd.

So I took a drive over and discovered that The Garland is no longer. I don’t know when it closed.

Instead there is a banner that reads, “coming soon…..zemam’s, too!” While I sat there, several women came to the door and knocked. Eventually someone let them in.

When I called over to the original Zemam’s on Broadway the guy I spoke with confirmed that they will be opening a new restaurant some time near the end of July. The original Zemam’s will remain open.

The menus will be similar but the new spot on Speedway will have a menu that features food from “other countries” the man told me. He didn’t mention anything specific — only that the countries involved are the ones the owners traveled in when they were in The Peace Corps.
