With word that the Vietnamese restaurant Kevin’s Noodle House is reopening in Concord, and considering their Walnut Creek location has been open for a while now, I’m wondering what Vietnamese restaurants people have been going to. There is also Saigon Vietnamese Bistro on Newell Ave. that replaced Pho Saigon. So what’s your favorite Vietnamese restaurant?

The sign outside the soon-to-be-open Noah’s Bagels in downtown Walnut Creek where Blockbuster Video used to be on Mt.

With news this week that a new wine bar called Cine Cuvée is coming to downtown Orinda, in addition to ADEGA Wine Bar coming to downtown Walnut Creek, not to mention a new wine bar being added to the Century Theater in Walnut Creek, I’ve been wondering what are your favorite wine bars?

1633 Bonanza St, Walnut Creek

A new ramen and yakitori restaurant called Ramen Hiroshi will be opening the beginning of November in downtown Walnut Creek where 310 Eatery used to be on Bonanza St. Since they don’t have their alcohol license yet they’re starting with ramen initially with plans to add yakitori later on. The owner mentioned one of my favorite South Bay ramen spots Orenchi from Santa Clara so I’m very hopeful!
