Two new restaurants are springing up on North Fourth Avenue this fall, and both will be housed in buildings with long Tucson histories.
• The old Coronado Hotel downtown, 402 E. Ninth St. at North Fourth Avenue, is about to get a corner diner again. Sally Kane and her business partner, Gregor Kretschmann, will open a European-style cafe in the small space in the fall.
• Tucson architect and restaurateur Jason Anderson is eyeing a pair of old brick buildings at 201 N. Fourth Ave. for a new venture he plans to call Hudson. Planning is in the preliminary stages, so Anderson is not quite sure what shape the menu will take, although he’s leaning toward smoked and rotisserie meats.
Anderson, who also has the popular Umi Star Asian fusion restaurant, hopes to be open by late November.
