Downtown getting Wilder

Citizen Staff Writer
Our Opinion

When Janos Wilder moved his award-winning Janos restaurant out of downtown 11 years ago, some said it was the death of downtown.

So now that Wilder is returning to downtown, does that represent a rebirth for the area? Maybe so.

Wilder is chef and owner of Janos and J Bar in the foothills at The Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa.

He staying there, but Wilder also is opening a new restaurant, bar and demonstration kitchen on the southwest corner of East Congress Street and Fifth Avenue. He hopes to have it open this fall.

Wilder said he is returning because “there are great things going on downtown.” We agree.

And with Wilder there, maybe others will be tempted to see what else downtown has to offer.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
