Golf Galaxy Opens in Pleasant Hill


Downtown Pleasant Hill Shopping Center

Thanks to a reader for pointing out that Golf Galaxy has opened in the Downtown Pleasant Hill Shopping Center where Golfsmith used to be. Golf Galaxy is owned by DICK’S Sporting Goods and according to a store employee everything in the store comes from Golf Galaxy, not leftover from Golfsmith. Too bad about that sign though…

Fat Maddie’s Barrelhouse & Bistro Coming to Pleasant Hill


Downtown Pleasant Hill Shopping Center

Fat Maddie’s Barrelhouse & Bistro is coming to the Downtown Pleasant Hill shopping center where they will occupy a prime spot at the clocktower where the clothing store Atlas & Athena and Pasta Pomodoro used to be. The owner is the same one as Fat Maddie’s Grille in San Ramon. Check out their menu here. I look forward to trying this place out!

From the Fat Maddie’s Grille website:

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.

Quite a number of new restaurants have opened in this shopping center lately so the competition for diners must be fierce. Also thanks much to the reader who sent in the photo.

The wait is over as “farm to plate” restaurant Urban Plates opens in the Downtown Pleasant Hill Shopping Center on Crescent Dr. I was looking forward to trying this place out yesterday but even though the sign out front says “Now Open” they were closed. However, someone working there indicated they’ll be open today. In addition to healthy dining choices they also offer wine and local craft beer as well. The new outdoor patios with heat lamps look great. Check out the photos of the inside and patios after the jump. Check out their menu here.
