• The doors at dearly-departed Dean-o’s Pizzarama at 1950 Cliff Dr were open recently and people were seen inside.
  • The windows at the former home of Fosters Freeze at 1924 Cliff Dr are now boarded up.
  • There was activity recently inside the space previously occupied by California Pasta – Five Points at 3979 State St and a set of blueprints was spotted on a bench outside. The “for lease” sign is still in the window.
  • An alcoholic beverage permit application in the name of Municipal Winery has been posted at 22 Anacapa St, the former home of the Anacapa Dive Center.
  • The FisHouse at 101 E. Cabrillo Blvd has posted a “notice of development.”  Rumor has it they will be expanding the bar to include a small outdoor patio.

    FYI- All of your links are 404ing.

      Try refreshing your browser. I fixed the links an hour ago.

        Hmm…Still a no-go, tried from multiple IPs (Cox and telepacific/verizon T1), multiple browsers, cleared cache, links still have the /news/2011/06/02 in them.

          I see the problem. I was using relative links which worked when I clicked then from /dining/news/ but fail when you click them from /dining/news/2011/06/02/whispers/

          I have made them all direct links now. I didn’t have breakfast today which appears to have degraded my geeking skills.

            Yeah, relative links have their pluses and minuses. ../../../../ one can lose count of which directory they are referring.

            Breakfast, mmm 🙂 Double mocha and a fresh blueberry muffin everyday for me from: D’Vine Cafe!

    It’s true, Municipal Winemakers is expanding from it’s current space behind Kunin. If you come by and Dave’s there he’ll give you the tour. http://municipalwinemakers.com/

    May the dining gods have mercy on upper state and put something good where California Pasta was.

    It has already been reported a few months ago in the Mesa Newspaper that the spaces that Dean-o’s and Fosters Freeze occupied will be remodeled as more retail space and will not be reopened or replaced by any restaurant. Sad, but true.

    Pretty sure that Petco is expanding into the restaurant space at Five Points
