After a year of waiting, Tucson finally has a date when pizza master Chris Bianco will open his much-anticipated Tucson outpost of Pizzeria Bianco.

Drumroll ..... July 24.

Date sound familiar? That's because that's a day before the city officially starts running the modern streetcar July 25 through downtown to the University of Arizona. 

Bianco, a James Beard Award-winning chef who has several restaurants in Phoenix and one in London, England, posted the date around lunchtime today on Instagram. The restaurant will mirror his original Pizzeria Bianco and serve just pizzas, antipasti and salads.
