Check out their menu here and stay tuned for a new bar (which will replace Redux), called “Urban Alley Bar”… Those bacon jam fries sounds tempting!

The LA street food style restaurant 310 Eatery is back. They’re B~A~C~K, with a possibly record-breaking third relocation within downtown Walnut Creek. They first opened over 3 years ago where Ramen Hiroshi is now on Bonanza St, later relocating to Redux Lounge on Locust St. followed by a popup relocation inside Library on Main on N. Main St. Now they are set to return to where Redux Lounge used to be, only without Redux Lounge this time around.
