Diablo Dish recently reported that a new casual, Asian restaurant called BZ Grill Asian Kitchen has opened in the Danville Livery. As you can see on the wall menu below (click to enlarge), step 1 is to choose a protein (grill or wok style), and step 2 is to choose a base like rice, noodles or salad. Each box comes with “Korean style broccoli, bean sprouts, pickled veggies & Asian slaw”.

The temporary fencing that had been in front of the Park Plaza shops in downtown Lafayette for a while have finally been removed, the Available signs are up, so I look forward to seeing which stores, restaurant and/or cafe will open up in this location. Note the store at the far left in the photo is the Pioneer Store which was built in the 1860s and used as a store, post office and dwelling house.

Back in March we learned that the pop-up boutique Leslie Evers would be closing in downtown Lafayette in Lafayette Square, to be replaced by a new Douglah Design showroom and their temporary signage is now up. This store will feature lighting and plumbing fixtures, sinks, tile and more while their other location at 3586 Mt Diablo Blvd. down the street will host their showroom. More information at their website here.

In February I noted that Threads Consignment moved next to Norf London in downtown Walnut Creek and now more change is happening in this area as Norf London has downsized with Threads Consignment taking over the other half of the store. CY Louie, the jewelry and accessories boutique previously in Broadway Plaza will relocate where Threads Consignment used to be, right next door.
In case you don’t know where this fashion hub is, as you’re walking down N. Main St. towards Neiman Marcus, turn right right before Brandy Melville in the covered passageway and it will be on your right, a few stores down.
