Jersey Mike’s Subs opened a couple of weeks ago on Hartz Avenue in Danville. They have over 600 locations around the country and offer cold and hot subs, wraps and salads. Check out their menu here. Has anyone tried a sub here? What’s the best one?
The British pub The Crown is closing at the end of August in downtown Danville according to a sign outside the restaurant (see below). On August 25th they are having a sale of pub collectibles including this red English phone booth:
The other day I stopped by the pizza place Forge in Danville for a preview on Railroad Ave. They are located right next to, and accessible within Lunardi’s supermarket. The design turned out great as you can see by the photos:
Service begins this Thursday. Check out their menu here. My favorite pizza was the heirloom tomato pizza with roasted garlic pesto and smoked mozzarella. Yum!
From a press release:
Forge Danville (“forge” refers to a hearth used to bake items at very hot temperatures) is a welcoming, fun and family-friendly restaurant that will serve freshly-made lunches and dinners seven days a week using the imported, Italian Valoriani oven. Menu items will include: daily homemade soups, hearty salads with fresh local ingredients and wood-fired roasted specialties, all anchored by the signature wood-fired pizzas. The bar at Forge will feature 15 local artisanal beers including 10 beers on tap from the custom designed cast iron tap system. A select wine list featuring Californian and European varietals will be available in addition to house-made tonic, ginger beer and root beer on tap. Forge will be available for catering and private events both on and off site.
I’m not one to gush about how good a restaurant is but the deli Domenico’s in Danville is possibly the best delicatessen in the East Bay if not the the entire western United States. Being originally from New York I’ve had my share of deli sandwiches and having eaten here numerous times I can say without a doubt that a Domenico’s sandwich is insanely good. It’s so good it’s actually ruined me when I order a sandwich almost anywhere else. I don’t know whether it’s the fresh ingredients, the aioli sauce they shmear on the sandwich or what, but whatever they make is incredibly delicious. You can check out their sandwich menu here and salads here. Has anyone eaten here? What’s your favorite sandwich or salad?
The only possible drawback is everyone else around the area knows how good it is as well so if you go during lunchtime be prepared for a line out the door. The sandwich makers really take their time making the sandwich which can cause delays. Domenico’s has been in business for 20 years now and in addition to sandwiches they also have salads, meats as well as sell wine, pasta and more.
In 1993 Joseph Domenico Giacomini and his wife, Sue, opened Domenico’s Delicatessen in downtown Danville. Joe’s father, Leo, had owned a successful Bay Area Italian delicatessen business that Joe grew up in. Joe and Sue have carefully crafted Domenico’s by blending traditional delicatessen favorites with a signature California twist. Fresh and flavorful, with an emphasis on lower fat.
In additon to the deli there is also a cafe next door serving, “Neapolitan style pizza, hot and cold panini sandwiches, espresso, yogurt and, of course fabulous gelato.”

Check out a closeup of two of their sandwiches, yum!
Domenico’s is located at 682 Hartz Avenue in downtown Danville.
