Demolition makes way for Trader Joe’s

By

Special to The Enterprise

An Indian eatery will soon liven up University Mall. Namaste Nepal Restaurant is leasing the 3,700-square-foot space last filled by La Esperanza.

The real estate broker, Michael Bisch of Davis Commercial Properties, said a grand opening is intended for May 15. The owners are listed in a public notice ad in The Davis Enterprise as Prajwal Bajracharya and Govinda Dhakal.

And thatÕs not the only activity at University Mall. No foolinÕ: In case you missed the front-page photo on April 1, demolition crews tore down the stand-alone building in University Mall once leased by Radiological Associates of Sacramento. The razing makes way for Trader JoeÕs. The specialty grocery store at Russell Boulevard and Sycamore Lane may open as early as October.

The mother and daughter who own French Cuff Consignment, Òa chic second-hand boutiqueÓ in midtown Sacramento, will open a Davis store in June.

Bisch said a lease has been signed for the 1,600-square-foot space just vacated by the Davis Chamber of Commerce. ItÕs in the Depot Building at 130 G St., Suite A.

The Sacramento storeÕs Web site, http://www.frenchcuffbtq.com, says it Òspecializes in quality fashion items from top designers from around the world.Ó ItÕs owned and operated by Darcy McNie and Corey De Roo.

ÑÑÑ

On Friday, the Davis Chamber of Commerce moved to Third and E streets. Its new address, 604 Third St., is a more visible location with a larger conference room. It will reopen for business on Monday.

An open house is planned this summer. For general Chamber information, go to http://www.davischamber.com or call (530) 756-5160.

ÑÑÑ

A new shop found its way into Mansion Square. Found opened March 30 at 132 E St., Suite 170.

The spot was last occupied by TWRF Creative/Highland Warmth.

Owner Ingrid Beckett said her store offers Òobjects of interest Ñ both vintage and new Ñ for the home and self. My shop is probably for the person who curates, as opposed to decorates, their personal space.Ó

Items include Òrecycled sari blankets and throws, old peculiar ephemera, folk art, textiles, antique apothecary, (and) interesting decorative objects I have accumulated in my travels, both near and far,Ó Beckett said. ÒNew items will include beautiful soaps and candles and other

gift-worthy items.Ó

Tentative hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, with a 1 p.m. opening on Thursdays, and by appointment.

ÑÑÑ

Crepe House Uni closed in mid-March. The restaurantÕs Davis Wiki page, http://daviswiki.org/Crepe_House_Uni, says an ingredient in the crepe batter Òwas refused into the countryÓ in January. The owner, Sagat Cheung, wasnÕt able to come up with an alternative recipe in time to save the store Ñ at 117 E St. in The Lofts Ñ from eviction.

The chain is popular in Japan. The Davis store sold a large selection of crepes, from savory to sweet. On the Wiki page, the owner mentioned plans to open eateries soon in Hawaii and Asia.

ÑÑÑ

Looks like The Pita Pit has scheduled a return to Davis, according to a classified public notice ad running in The Enterprise. The pita sandwich shop closed last year, but still has its signs up at 213 E St., next to Watermelon Music.

ÑÑÑ

Taste of Thai may open later this month at 301 G St., the former site of Noodle Express.

Husband-and-wife owners Vitavat Lumpongpoung and Duangthida Sahatranseekul have other

restaurants of the same name in Sacramento, Natomas and Roseville.

An employee at the Sacramento restaurant said Wednesday it was still waiting on inspections.

ÑÑÑ

Anderson Glass is making some changes. The store, which has been open since 1971, will continue to sell glass, windows and shower doors, but will no longer install them, employee Johnny Rexroth said Thursday.

The restructuring means fewer employees, he said. The changes took effect this month. The shop is at 920 Third St., Suite C.

ÑÑÑ

The Howard Johnson hotel at 4100 Chiles Road changed last month to Stone Villa Hotel. For information, go to http://www.staydavis.com.

ÑÑÑ

Holistic Health Center has moved from its spot near the downtown post office at Third and D streets, to 1403 Fifth St., Suite B.

A Baja Fresh Mexican fast-food restaurant is planned for the old location at 237 D St. No word on a projected opening date, but it doesnÕt look soon.
