From a PR:
Broth Shabu Shabu features an outstanding traditional Japanese menu of “all you can eat” shabu-shabu, with an upscale and cozy atmosphere. It serves a large selection of freshly-prepared ingredients including meat, seafood, oden, noodles and vegetables.
San Jose-based Frujuice is opening in a permanent spot on the second floor of the Sunvalley shopping center in Concord. Check out their menu (towards the bottom) here. I look forward to trying the Juicy Spicy Papaya dish/drink!
Ortega produce began to sell fruit at the San Jose Capital Flea Market.

San Diego-based Puesto, the “Mexican artisan kitchen & bar” is coming to the Veranda shopping center this summer, right next to the IMAX movie theater. Check out their menu at one of their other locations here.
Before Puesto, we had all left San Diego to chase ambitions in other ventures. Though we found individual success in other places, it was tacos that brought us back together and back to California —Chef Luisteen’s tacos, to be exact. His passion for completely re –defining the taco brought us back to our hometown of San Diego to start a family business, the taco stand we’d never even dreamed of. Now we’re tacoteurs and have never looked back.
The character for GEN simply means, “The beginning”, and we welcome you to join us in the art of Korean barbeque. We are looking to transcend the norm of Korean BBQ by fusing different flavors that we have found using ingredients from different parts of the world.
Plenty of pizza choices coming to Concord with Mod Pizza opening recently in the new Veranda shopping center in Concord. Check out their menu here. Yesterday we learned that the Neapolitan pizzeria MidiCi will be opening next door at the Willows shopping center.
In addition to burgers and Mexican food you’ll soon be able to get your pizza fix as the franchise Neapolitan pizzeria MidiCi is coming to the Willows shopping center where Road Runner Sports used to be. Check out their pizza menu here.
Our certified pizzaiolos (pizza makers) invite you to select fresh, natural, high quality, mostly non-GMO high quality ingredients to create your ideal Neapolitan Pizza in the open, center-staged bustling kitchen, also known as “the heart”.

Staying true to Neapolitan heritage, our dough is made with only four fine ingredients – non-GMO double zero flour imported from Naples, pure water, sea salt and live yeast. The authentic and pure garnishes include – crushed non-GMO Italian peeled tomatoes, fresh whole mozzarella and non-GMO, Italian extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil.
The Concord Planning Commission is holding a public hearing this evening which will consider an application for Massage Envy to open where Rick’s Rather Rich Ice Cream (and the spot next door) used to be in the Willows Shopping Center in Concord. I believe this is the first salon-type service to open at the Willows. Has there been anything like this previously?
