3555 Mt. Diablo Blvd, Lafayette
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.
398 Hartz Ave, Danville
The high-end women’s consignment boutique Consignit Couture is closing their original location in Danville by the end of July as Starbucks will be expanding into this spot on Hartz Ave. The Walnut Creek Consignit Couture, which opened a few years ago, will remain open. Check out their website here.
Crow Canyon Commons, San Ramon
In March we learned that Sacramento-based Dos Coyotes Border Cafe would be coming to Crow Canyon Commons in San Ramon and they have now opened. They feature Mexican & Southwestern cuisine. Check out their menu here. Last summer they opened in Willows shopping center in Concord.
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.
1411 Locust St, Walnut Creek
A quick note about last week’s post about 310 Eatery coming back to downtown Walnut Creek where Redux Lounge (+ 310 Eatery) used to be. They are now OPEN! 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!
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.
