Four new eateries

    Two new Mexican restaurants are set to open in Tuolumne County and a third is finding success in East Sonora after four months of operation.
    In addition, a new Italian restaurant has also entered the mix, opening in downtown Sonora Monday after months of preparation and renovation.
    Artisan Pizza & Espresso Bar, at Stewart and Linoberg streets, is located at the site formerly occupied by Banny’s Cafe and Wine Bar.
    A complete menu is available on the Internet at www.oldtownsonora.com.
    Among the Mexican eateries, two are set to open in area shopping centers: La Hacienda Restaurant in The Junction shopping center, and Camacho’s in the Sonora Crossroads shopping center. Camacho’s is a new restaurant owned by the Camacho family, which previously operated Camacho’s Taqueria in downtown Sonora.
  Look for the new Camacho’s to open near the Staples office supply store and La Hacienda to open across from Starbucks. La Hacienda will hold a grand opening on Sept. 22, while an opening date for Camacho’s has not been announced publicly.
    Rapido Burritos Taqueria, meanwhile, has been open since May at 14301 Mono Way in East Sonora, across from the Sonora Aladdin Motor Inn. Rapido focuses on takeout, with several tables also available inside.
  The business was recently awarded the Tuolumne County Chamber of Commerce’s remodeling award.
    Rapido Burritos’ manager Daniel Sanchez described the restaurant as a place for people on the go to get some fresh Mexican food quickly.
    “I came up with the idea when I was working construction,” said Sanchez. “You’re always on the go and you don’t have time to be waiting, you just want to grab something and get back.”
    “We’re trying to stay on the healthy side,” Sanchez said. “We don’t use lard, we use soybean oil and everything is fresh.”
    The restaurant even has a salsa bar for those with discriminating spicy tastes.
    Rapido Burritos Taqueria, owned by Sanchez’s aunt, Maria Lucas, is open from 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.
    George Segarini, the chamber’s president and chief executive officer, said the influx of new restaurants in the county is good news, though he can’t pinpoint why they’re coming.
    “Has there been a change regarding economic conditions? I’d have to say ‘no’ at the moment,” he said. “The only thing that has really changed is the attitude.”
