Joe’s to start trading in Davis next week

Special to The Enterprise

The much-anticipated Davis Trader JoeÕs will open at 8 a.m. Friday, Oct. 29. The 12,000-square-foot grocery store is at 885 Russell Blvd. in University Mall.

Store hours will be from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Opening day will feature a lei-cutting ceremony as well as live music, food demos and stickers for children.

The Davis storeÕs decor mixes its traditional cedar-covered walls and Hawaiian-inspired elements with some local flair. There are several hand-painted murals commemorating the university, Davis Farmers Market and viticulture heritage. In another nod to Davis, bicycles and recycled bike parts play a part in the artwork and decorations, a news release said.

Along with basics like milk and eggs, the market carries a wide assortment of domestic and imported food, drinks, beer and wine. These include artisan breads, coffee beans, international frozen entrŽes, juices, nuts, deli items and vitamins. Its prices are consistently competitive, without sales, the news release said.

Trader JoeÕs began in 1958 in the Los Angeles area. Since then, it has expanded to more than 340 stores in 27 states. For more information, go to http://www.traderjoes.com.

Consignment clothing is hot. The latest to enter the scene is Jacksonfly, which opened Saturday at 231 E St., Suite 3. ItÕs behind PeetÕs Coffee, in the former spot of Five Figs Couture.

Owner Justin Jackson buys, sells and trades designer jeans and other womenÕs clothing. The store also plans to add British bras, childrenÕs ballet and dance clothing and shoes, and yoga and Pilates clothing.

British bras come in half-sizes, with cups ranging from AA to K. ÒIt is a different sizing system that adds many between sizes for a more comfortable, flattering and efficient fit,Ó Jackson said.

Jackson is a Davis High School graduate who has done a public affairs show called ÒThis Week in ScienceÓ at KDVS for the past six years.

ÒFrom our initial research (growing up in Davis) it is clear that there is a longstanding rift between what is being worn and what can be purchased in town,Ó Jackson wrote in an e-mail. ÒJacksonfly is being built around a single survey question: What do you wear that you canÕt buy in Davis?

ÒThe answers to that question represent a trade deficit for our local economy.Ó

He said the shop aims to close that gap and target the price points of clothing stores that rely on overseas sweat shops, by recycling gently owned fashions.

JacksonflyÕs hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays.

Citing the economy, owners of the longtime Woodland restaurant MorrisonÕs closed on Friday.

According to The EnterpriseÕs Sharon Stello, the deli closed Oct. 6, the upscale MorrisonÕs Upstairs served its last meals last Sunday, and the bar downstairs served until two days ago, allowing Woodland High School alumni to share one last drink in their favorite place after the homecoming football game.

Steve and Liz Morrison, the husband-and-wife team who ran the upstairs portion, said the economyÕs downturn took its toll on the restaurant in an already tough industry.

The restaurant at 4281Ú2 First St. is in the historic Jackson Building, constructed in 1891 as WoodlandÕs first luxury apartment complex.

Landlord Mark Ullrich said there are no firm plans yet for the approximately 6,000-square-foot space.

Two Davis-based restaurants will sell their food at Sacramento International AirportÕs new Central Terminal B, which will open in late 2011.

The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors on Oct. 5 approved contracts to concessionaires who will sell food from Dos Coyotes and Burgers & Brew. Other Sacramento-area eateries will include JackÕs Urban Eats, Cafeteria 15L and Esquire Grill.

Monticello Seasonal Cuisine is still holding to its Òoptimistic planÓ of opening by Thanksgiving. Co-owner Rhonda Gruska said December is their Òrealistic date.Ó

The restaurant, at 630 G St., takes the spot next to the Davis Food Co-op that was last occupied by Osaka Sushi. It will feature high-quality seasonal food and wine from around the region.

SogaÕs, the new (old) name for the former Agave restaurant at 217 E St., reopened Wednesday. It was closed briefly for restructuring. Its new menu includes Italian, Mexican and American cuisine.

Restaurant hours are 2 to 10 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Bar hours extend until 1:30 a.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, when thereÕs a limited menu of American food.

ÑÑÑ

Silver Dragon, the Chinese restaurant at 335 F St., has been closed for renovations. The restaurant is set to re-open Tuesday or Wednesday.
