Back in April I noted that Mona’s Burgers and Shakes would be opening in the Palos Verdes mall in Walnut Creek this summer and they are progressing with their signage up now and a Craigslist post looking for servers, cooks and cashiers. Their Facebook page is subtitled, “burger restaurant, hot dog joint, salad bar”.

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.
Check out the developer’s page on the Park Plaza Shops here.

Thanks to everyone who sent in word that the Italian-Peruvian fusion restaurant Stelle Bistro has closed. Diablo Dish also reported that they “appeared” to have gone out of business. Although the inside shows the table settings still set, the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate sign in front is the most public indication that they really have closed for good.

Noah’s Bagels is coming to downtown Walnut Creek where Blockbuster Video used to be on Mt.

Last month I noted that the Brewing Network-owned The Hop Grenade Taproom & Bottleshop would be opening in June and now Diablo Dish is reporting that they may be opening this Sunday. Check their Facebook page for updates. Check out their bar menu here.
Last week I noted the progress being made to the inside of Coffee Bean & Tea leaf’s Walnut Creek location in the Sprouts Shopping Center and thanks to a reader for pointing out that the signage went up the next day! It can’t be long now… Of course then there’s the question of parking. Yikes.
