Jack’s Reopens after Remodel at Downtown Pleasant Hill Shopping Center


Downtown Pleasant Hill Shopping Center

The restaurant and bar Jack’s recently reopened after a ten day interior remodel and newly revamped menu at the Downtown Pleasant Hill Shopping Center. The inside is quite spacious with a bar area with TVs, outdoor patio, and additional dining space upstairs. I had an opportunity to dine there recently and enjoyed the experience, particularly the Thai steak salad, which was very tasty. For dessert the Galaktoboureko, which is a, “traditional Greek dessert, semolina custard rolled in phyllo pastry, apricot-orange blossom preserve, pistachio ice cream”, hit all the right spots. Check out their menus here. There are so many options to choose from in a family friendly environment that I’ll be sure to check this place out with my family.

From their website:

We’re open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks. It’s a family run business with a focus on genuine, old school hospitality. Jack’s welcomes guests with an extensive menu that reflects the Marcovici family’s Greek-American heritage and the natural bounty of their California home.

Progress on ULTA Beauty in Downtown Pleasant Hill Shopping Center


Downtown Pleasant Hill Shopping Center

In the beginning of the year we learned that ULTA Beauty would be coming to the Downtown Pleasant Hill shopping center and the signage is now up as they get closer to opening. They opened several years ago in the Willows shopping center in Concord; I wonder if that location will remain open. Check out their online shop here.

Last February we learned that the San Ramon-based restaurant Fat Maddie’s would be opening in the Downtown Pleasant Hill shopping center where Pasta Pomodoro used to be and they have now opened. Based on the planters in front it looks like there will be front and side patio seating. Check out their menu here.

From their website:

Since 2010, Fat Maddie’s Grille in San Ramon has offered artisan, farmhouse inspired sandwiches, burgers, salads, and entrees – All made with the freshest local ingredients in a casual, family-friendly setting.

Named for our family’s favorite goat, FAT MADDIE’S rustic menu incorporates local, sustainable, and organic ingredients. The family is committed to serving only free-range and antibiotic free chicken as well as hormone and antibiotic free beef. FAT MADDIE’S eggs come from chickens on the family’s personal working farm and food waste is recycled to pigs on a neighboring ranch. As for the goat cheese, let’s just say that Maddie has her sources.
