Manakish Oven & Grill Coming to Walnut Creek

2905 N. Main St, Walnut Creek

Thanks to a reader for sending word about a new restaurant called Manakish Oven & Grill coming to Walnut Creek at the corner of N. Main St. and Geary Rd. where Bee & Tea used to be. According to Wikipedia manakish is, “a popular Levantine [Eastern Mediterranean] food consisting of dough topped with thyme, cheese, or ground meat. Similar to a pizza, it can be sliced or folded, and it can be served either for breakfast or lunch.” Check out their website here.


Baygreens Salads Closes in Downtown Walnut Creek

1653 Mt. Diablo Blvd, Walnut Creek

Baygreens Salads, opened since only last December in downtown Walnut Creek has closed. An employee inside told me they were permanently closed which his unfortunate since they had really tasty fresh juice drinks but this is a tough location since it’s recessed into the building making it less visible. Their Oakland location remains open. Check out their website here. Thanks to a reader for pointing this out.
