The highly anticipated restaurant, Social Bird, from the owners of Esin and Revel in Danville, opened this weekend in the former Yankee Pier space at the Lafayette Mercantile shopping plaza. Check out the menu here. As you can see from the photos below, they offer oysters, beer on tap and have a spacious wrap-around bar with plenty of seating. I look forward to checking this place out!

Lafayette Mercantile

An update from this week’s update about Danville-based Esin coming to the Lafayette Mercantile where Yankee Pier used to be. Although Lamorinda Weekly reported that they “will be opening a second Esin” it turns out that the owners will actually be opening a third concept restaurant (after Esin and Revel) called Social Bird.

Esin Restaurant & Bar Coming to Lafayette


Lafayette Mercantile

The Danville-based restaurant and bar Esin will be coming to Lafayette where Yankee Pier used to be at the Lafayette Mercantile plaza according to Lamorinda Weekly. Check out a sample lunch menu here and dinner menu here.

From their website:

Curious, adventurous, and caring, the deCarions meticulously oversee each meal for their guests. They are fussy about everything at the restaurant from the pristine dining room to the freshness of each ingredient. The couple also takes extra care to mentor and train their staff. Curtis and Esin attract food-loving servers who instinctively understand guests’ needs. They nurture a spirit of teamwork and independent thinking. And keep a keen eye on the environment by recycling and using many local purveyors.

Yankee Pier Closing Today in Lafayette


Lafayette Mercantile

Thanks to everyone who emailed that the seafood restaurant Yankee Pier will be closing today in the Lafayette Mercantile shopping center. Apparently high rent as well as lower revenue caused the same group that owned Lark Creek in downtown Walnut Creek to exit. However, their website does show they also own nearby Cooperage and Corners Tavern. I wonder if the addition of newer restaurants Batch & Brine and Barranco across the street impacted them negatively?
