New: Parisian Cafe

A new breakfast-and-lunch joint called the Parisian Cafe has opened at 1012 E. Sixth St., where the Petite Pea catering company operated a storefront for some time. The new place offers omelets, salads, sandwiches and daily specials ranging from barbecued pork to chicken cordon bleu. Espresso is also on the way, but there's no word yet on when it will be available. The place caters special events, too; 798-3333.

Now Open!

Tucson's first Genghis Grill location is open at 4386 N. Oracle Road, No. 150. It's a build-your-own meal type of place where guests choose from 70 different ingredients, and workers wok it up for them. Folks from the corporate office say the eatery is the largest Mongolian-stir-fry chain in the country.

The first Tucson location of the Bisbee Breakfast Club is open at 4131 W. Ina Road. Think big breakfasts, burgers and a lengthy list of desserts made in-house. The restaurant's other location is, of course, in Bisbee.

Coming Soon: Playground

The new bar and lounge Playground, at Congress Street and Fifth Avenue, should be open in early January, and it looks like it will be unlike anything Tucson has ever seen. We toured the place while workers were preparing to install an 82-square-foot video screen and various other techie details that owner Kade Mislinski, who also owns the nearby Hub Restaurant and Ice Creamery, is having put in. The building will have four separate bars, including a bar-cinema out back and an upstairs bar called Detention. Snack foods also will be available.

In the New Year

Several new restaurants are scheduled to open in early 2012. Bella D'Auria (4445 E. Broadway Blvd.), an Italian eatery run by the former owners of Café D'Auria, should open any day. The second location of Sir Veza's Taco Garage, at 220 W. Wetmore Road, is expected to open soon. The new brasserie Agustin is coming along nicely at Mercado San Agustin, 100 S. Avenida del Convento, and a bar with a tropical theme from a former owner of the Hut should be open before long at 5689 N. Swan Road. Reilly Craft Pizza and Drink, a pizza and sandwich shop going in at the former Reilly Funeral Home at 101 E. Pennington St., is also slated to open soon.
