It's been quite some time since a business occupied the space next to Magpies Gourmet Pizza on Fourth Avenue — The Parlour yogurt shop being the most recent. Now there's a new concept up and running by a chef that's accomplished some pretty incredible things in his career.
Chef Brian Hill recently moved to Tucson from Florida and opened up Chef Brian’s Comfort Kitchen, which is a takeout, delivery, and catering company.
Before moving to Tucson, Hill has had a lot of fun experiences in the kitchen. He was on the very first season of "Top Chef," he's appeared on other reality TV shows like "Master Chef" and "Beat Bobby Flay," and he was once the private chef for celebrities Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, and Eddie Murphy.
Now, Tucsonans have the chance to take a bite out of the cuisine they're pumping out at 611 N. Fourth Avenue. The menu truly is comfort food, too, with options like the Single Man's Charbroiled Turkey Burger, fried chicken and waffles, chicken wings, and the Chesapeake Bay Shallow Fried Salmon Croquettes.
