Two new restaurants and a beer and wine bar, all with Flagstaff ties, are coming to the Rialto block downtown.

Derrick Widmark, owner of the popular Diablo Burger in Flag, has chosen to open a second location at 312 E. Congress St.

He also has claim to a connecting space at 316 E. Congress St. where he plans on putting in what he is calling the Good Oak Bar.

In addition, an eatery called Proper, a “rustic, farm-to-table restaurant” that will offer brunch and dinner seven days a week, according to owner Paul Moir, is set to open at 300 E. Congress St.

Moir and his wife, Laura Moir, own two restaurants in Flagstaff, the casual fine dining joint Brix and Criollo Latin Kitchen.

All three Rialto block establishments are set to open by next spring.

“We are excited,” Widmark said. “I love the authenticity of Tucson. It is a place with a distinct flavor and vibe just like Flagstaff."
