  12. The dining scene expanded. A few restaurants changed names, changed management, but no dining sites closed doors in 2022. There were in fact several new options on the scene, including Red Cellar & Bistro Wine Bar, Shanghai Asian Seafood, The Healthy Bar, Olympus Diner, Kusina de Maynila (Kingman’s first Pilipino eatery), Charley’s Cheesesteak, a downtown Victoria’s Sugar Shack satellite bakery shop, and Calico’s Restaurant returned to the Downtown. All-in-all, Kingman leveled up to 90 dine-in options by year’s end, more than at any point in the small towns food history!
