Costas and Judie Georgacas never met the late Tucson restaurateur Pat Connors, but when they walked into his central Tucson restaurant last week, keys in hand and the ink on the property title not quite dry, the couple felt his presence. The sale to the Tucson couple was finalized three weeks after Connors, 48, died on March 5 after a months-long battle with advanced lung cancer. The Georgacases had been negotiating the sale since mid-November, not long after Connors put the year-old restaurant on the market following his cancer diagnosis last fall.

Connors had told family and friends that he wanted to settle his affairs while he was still able. Pastiche was the second restaurant the Georgacases had seriously considered buying. The first was near the University of Arizona, but the deal fell apart. The Pastiche deal felt almost fated from the start, said Judie, who had twice stumbled on the blind listing — it was advertised without the name — before she was able to get the ball rolling.

Judie was familiar with Pastiche. She and her late husband, Charlie, had been regulars over the years. But Costas had only eaten there once or twice, and neither had ever met Pat Connors, who was known to stroll the dining room with an infectious smile, greeting longtime patrons and newcomers like old friends.

But they knew of Connors, had heard the stories of his outsized personality and generous spirit, the way he rallied other Tucson restaurateurs to help one community cause or another. It is a legacy that the Georgacases hope to continue, and add onto. The menu might be tweaked in time, with less popular dishes dropped and others added, but the flavor of Pastiche will remain.

Regular restaurant features, from the live music two nights a week to the Tuesday steak nights, will live on, and the staff, many of whom have been with the restaurant for years, has agreed to stay on. The Georgacases said they believe they were meant to be at Pastiche. They share a deep and tragic bond with Cole and his mother, Julie.

The weather, he said, reminded him of Greece. Judie and her husband had moved to Tucson from California in She worked in real estate. When Charlie was diagnosed with cancer, Judie cared for him for five years before he died. As the Pastiche deal played out, some of the emotions Judie and Costas experienced with their spouses came back to the surface. Costas said he had been contemplating coming out of retirement for months before they found Pastiche.

I think he would be very happy and I think they would be good friends, if not best buds. In 14, square feet, the new Peter Piper Pizza in Marana is more than double the size of its former location.

April Kuhlmann said her mother then bought 18 acres in the middle of nowhere — beyond SaddleBrooke and the fork in the road at Oracle Junction, where Arizona heads toward Florence.
