The next time you're looking for a good place to eat in downtown Tucson, look no further than Proper. This bustling restaurant has hit the ground running since it opened its doors earlier this year. The restaurant is the latest project from SLO Restaurant Concepts, the team responsible for two of Flagstaff's most popular restaurants: Brix Restaurant & Wine Bar and Criollo Latin Kitchen.

Proper offers a polished, gourmet take on New American fare. Brunch and dinner are served seven days a week, with late-night service every day until midnight. Local and regional ingredients have been incorporated into the menu, and everything is prepared from scratch in house.
The decor alone is worth a visit. The bar features excellent views of downtown Tucson, and the tabletops and wall panels were handcrafted from reclaimed local wood.
Of course, the real star of the show is the menu, which is divided into brunch, bites, drinks and dinner. From the brunch menu, the Brunch Board offers a gourmet sampling of late-morning treats. It comes with duck rillete, a soft-boiled egg, saucicon sec Iberico, tomato jam, artisan cheese, poached apricots and figs, house pickles and a black pepper parmesan lavosh.
So, bring your favorite foodie and prepare to be impressed.
