    Hi there thanks for the info! We are longtime fans of the Red Pepper in Goleta. Where did you hear they are re-opening and when?

  2. Carol Ritz says:

    Do you know when Bristol Farms is opening?

  3. Brian says:

    Any word on if/when Vicenta’s is reopening?

  4. Karen says:

    Is there any more news on the former Paesano’s Pizza spot on San Andres?

  5. Craig R Cummings says:

    Off topic . . .

    Is the new restaurant Flor de Maiz in the same place as the old Espana (from ~50 years ago)?

    Drove by Bristol Farms the other day, during the week, and zero activity taking place. I’m no construction expert, but that space looks to be months away from completion. I know at one time construction had stopped completely b/c there were issues with permitting with the city, but not sure if that is still the case. What a mess – not having a “real” grocery store like Vons there is very inconvenient in that area.
