Word on the street is that Jim Mishler, who I am told is the General Manager at Paradise Café, will be opening a restaurant at 1305 State Street, the former home of Downey’s restaurant, which closed recently after 35 years in business. As always, this rumor might be completely false or a brilliant forecast of future events. Your call.

    Eagerly awaiting information about the type of food.

    It was such a pleasure to dine again at Downey’s. To appreciate the restaurant and give a proper goodbye to the Downeys. And have a good meal!

    I never got to eat at Downey’s in my entire 35 years living in SB! So sad. I hope whatever goes in there is mid-range priced and different. We need something different. SB is lacking in good vegetarian places. I wish we’d get more veggie/vegan options in a cafe/diner style that would be open at night, not just for lunch.
