When Jim “Murph” Murphy and his partner Jeff Azersky opened Kingfisher Bar & Grill on East Grant Road in 1993, folks thought they were crazy.

Ken Foy heard the same criticisms when he opened Dante’s Fire just down the road in 2013.

Today, the two restaurants are anchors in a revival of a stretch of East Grant near North Tucson Boulevard that many had given up as a lost cause.

By the end of April, there will be six restaurants in the 2500 block of East Grant Road. The newest outposts of the national chain Snooze A.M. Eatery and the Phoenix-born wine cafe Postino, are slated to be open by then.
