2 new restaurants could be coming to downtown Gainesville

By Sydney Hencil Anchor/Reporter

Two new restaurants could end up by the Gainesville north parking deck in the downtown area.  

"These two restaurants are crowns that are just going to make it (downtown) better," said Gainesville Mayor Sam Couvillon.

A pizza and Tex-Mex restaurant were proposed at the City Council work session, Thursday morning.  

Council woman Juli Clay said that this is a great opportunity, especially with all the housing development that Gainesville has seen.

"More than a thousand new people in the downtown area that are going to be looking for opportunities in retail and dining," Clay said.

Phil's Pizza Tavern will be more than just a pizza restaurant, serving burgers and sandwiches, salads and homemade ice cream sandwiches.  Tex-Mex Hondo Cantina will be a mixture of northern Mexican cuisine with a mix of Texan flavors.

Each proposed restaurant will be two stories and connected by an outdoor plaza.
