Another One Bites the Crust – Take One Pizza Closes in Downtown Walnut Creek

1273 Locust St, Walnut Creek

Thanks to a reader for pointing out that after being open less than six months Take One Pizza has closed in downtown Walnut Creek. When I dropped by over the weekend mail was seen piling up right behind the front door. You may recall a few years ago Project Pie closed a short hop away after being open only a few months, replaced by Pizza My Heart so maybe we’ll see a new pizza place open here as well?

In addition to Pizza My Heart there is also Extreme Pizza, CPK, Pancoast Pizza and my favorite, Slice House!

Crow Canyon Commons, San Ramon

The restaurant Plucked Chicken & Beer is opening in Crow Canyon Commons in San Ramon. According to Diablo Dish these are the same owners as Sauced with locations in Livermore and Walnut Creek. Check for updates on their Facebook page here. I wonder what the self-service beer taps will be like…

From their website:

Plucked Chicken & Beer will feature creative and fun dishes made with, you guessed it… chicken! From appetizers, salads, sandwiches, entrees and an impressive selection of self-service beer taps, we guarantee you’ll leave wanting more.
