Tucson Downtown New Restaurant

April 14th, 2016 by Betty Ross

You may wish to dine at Tucson newest restaurant. Elvira’s downtown!

elviraDowntown Tucson is excited for its new neighbor. Elvira’s Restaurant, a beloved Tubac classic, is opening a second location in downtown Tucson at 256 E. Congress St. on Saturday, April 16.

The upscale Mexican restaurant will open its second location in the former Saint House Island Bistro and Rum Bar at 256 E. Congress St. After about a year of renovations, the restaurant is slated to hold a soft opening April 15.

Elvira’s owner, Rubén Monroy Jr., is moving up to Tucson so he can work the kitchen and front of the house. He plans to keep all of the classic Elvira’s dishes, but will revamp about 30 percent of the menu. Right now, he’s tinkering around with new mole flavors like pine nut, almond and dried fruit.

“We’re gonna play a little bit,” he said. But “you end up giving people what they want.”
