Cindy’s is diner by day, Thai restaurant by night

March 6, 2009 |

CindyÕs Restaurant has made some adjustments since it changed hands last month. It still features American diner fare for breakfast and lunch, but transforms into a Thai restaurant for dinner.

The eatery, at 4823 Chiles Road, is open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. for breakfast and 3:30 to 9 p.m. as Thai Dynamite for dinner. A friend said the Thai menu was less predictable than most, and the best sheÕs tasted in a long time.


2K Thai Food, at 223 G St., will move across the street to 238 G St., where Strelitzia Flower Co. was. Its owners hope to have things in place by the end of March, with a new name: KetMoRee.


The Chinese food restaurant Hunan also is moving across the street from its spot at 508 Second St., Suite 104. An employee said the move to 209 D St. could happen at the end of this month.


Fuzio Universal Bistro has moved its Firecracker fusili out of Davis Commons. Its new, larger venue, due to open in June, is under construction at 139 G St., next to FroggyÕs.


Mikuni Japanese Restaurant and Sushi bar will fill FuzioÕs spot at 500 First St., Suite 11. An employee at its Natomas restaurant said it plans to open in Davis in mid- to late-April.


Frank Stephenson of Capital Saloon & Grill, at First and Main streets in Woodland, said the eatery should be complete in a few more weeks.

The new restaurant will fill the ground floor of the 140-year-old Capital Hotel building thatÕs part of a downtown redevelopment project. The second floor will have office space and the top floor will have five residential lofts. The upper floors are to be completed this spring by developer Tim Mullikin, president and CEO of Pilot Properties in Sacramento.

The restaurant will be a classic American steakhouse with comfort food and grilled fare. Stephenson said the building got power Thursday, and still needs gas and water lines before inspections.


As The Enterprise reported Feb. 24, Best Buy, Michaels and several other stores are set to open April 15 next to Costco and Target at Gateway shopping center at County Road 102 and

Interstate 5 in Woodland.

Developer Paul Petrovich told the Enterprise that Pet Extreme, a pet supply chain based in Turlock, also is slated for the April opening, along with Famous Footwear, Matthews Mattress, In-N-Out Burger, Verizon Wireless, Subway sandwich shop and a nail salon.

Petrovich said heÕs also working with a Chinese restaurant chain, which may be ready to open by that date.


Wachovia Bank in Davis will become a PremierWest Bank in the second quarter of this year, as part of a deal with Wells Fargo & Company, which acquired Wachovia on Dec. 31.

A Wells Fargo spokeswoman said the deal required it to sell six Wachovia stores, including all assets associated with them, in six banking markets. Those markets included the Davis Wachovia at 333-A F St., directly across the street from a Wells Fargo.

Meanwhile, Wachovia will remain open. Customers at Wells Fargo and Wachovia banks will have free use of each otherÕs ATMs.

The acquisition will increase the number of PremierWestÕs branches to 48 including 24 in California, and increase its deposits to about $1.7 billion total.
