Seven months after temporarily closing due to COVID-19 in 2020, Tucson chef Janos Wilder closed 10-year-old Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails restaurant for good.

Wilder, a James Beard Award-winning chef, has been a fixture in Tucson's restaurant scene since he opened his namesake Janos downtown on Halloween night 1983. He remained downtown until he moved the restaurant to La Paloma in 1998. – Cathy Burch
