Late last year we pondered whether a new poke restaurant called Poke Go would be coming to Lafayette to replace the Chinese reaturant The Tasteful Noodle and as you can see in the above photo, the temporary signage is up. Check for updates on their Facebook page here.
La Fiesta Square, Lafayette
The New York-based clothing store J.McLaughlin, which we learned would be coming to La Fiesta Square in Lafayette (next to Starbucks), opened last Friday. Find out more about their story (founded in 1977) here, check out their online selection here and book an appointment with a stylist here.
Considering its East Coast origins I’m not surprised it reminded me of Vineyard Vines with a preppy look. In addition to an expansive women’s selection there is also a smaller men’s section including swimwear, perfect for the upcoming summer.
Plaza Center, Lafayette
A new Pilates studio called Club Pilates, with over 200 studios nationwide, is coming to Plaza Center behind Whole Foods in Lafayette. According to a post card on the door the grand opening will be June 3rd and 4th where they will offer demo classes, 25% off all retails merchandise, earlybird discounts and hourly raffles & vendor giveaways.
From their website:
The widest array of classes available anywhere, designed to challenge students at every level and target exactly what you want to work on most.
Brand-new state of the art equipment in every studio, including not just Reformers, but the entire array of Pilates tools: the Chair, the Springboard, the Barre. And the TRX Training System. You’ll get a complete Pilates workout, every time.
The best value in Pilates, with unexpectedly low prices that allow you to dedicate yourself to Pilates for life.

From an email:
I wanted to let you know about a grassroots effort we’re undertaking to stop Lafayette’s March 27 agreement with PG&E to take down 272 trees, 216 which were formerly “protected” under state ordinance. The city is accepting $536K for meridian improvements as part of the deal.
On the site, we link to a petition which has received over 200 signatures in the first 48 hours. Our goal is to raise awareness about PG&E’s plans since they refuse to release a map of planned tree removals. We also want the city to reexamine their approach with PG&E since it would create a catastrophic impact on some neighborhoods.
Last year we learned that the Seattle-based restaurant Homegrown Sustainable Sandwiches would be opening in Lafayette where La Boulange Cafe used to be and they have now opened. Check out their menu here. I had an opportunity to try their Grass-Fed Steak & Bleu cheese sandwich, made with grass-fed tri-tip steak, pt. reyes farmstead bleu, caramelized onions, roasted garlic aioli & greens To me the pungent blue cheese really pulled everything together which made for one tasty sandwich. With their organic farm located in nearby Discovery Bay and a focus on fresh, seasonal cuisine, I look forward to trying out other salads, soups and sandwiches as summer approaches!
Plenty more photos including the steak sandwich after the jump…
