Beach Hut Deli re-emerges, play café opens Monday

Roos’ Café, an indoor play place and café in Mace Ranch, will open to the public on Monday, with a grand opening and ribbon-cutting on Thursday. It’s at 2939 Spafford St., Suite 140A, in the Fifth Street Plaza.

Ru Hua Zheng, a Davis resident, created the concept “to provide a safe place for kids 0-5 to play while parents relax or socialize with other parents.”

Employees were busy in training when I stopped by on Thursday.

About half of the 1,600-square-foot space is a kids’ play area, where little ones explore while their parents socialize and enjoy family-friendly food and beverages. Hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.

The menu includes sandwiches, salads, yogurts and healthy grab-and-go options, along with locally roasted coffee, specialty teas, organic juices and milk.

Beach Hut Deli opened Tuesday in its new location, 4515 Fermi Place, across from Target.

It was formerly downtown on E Street. The new deli has a larger outdoor seating area, and flat-screen TVs at each booth. It also features one of those custom soda machines that my boys love at Dos Coyotes and Original Steve’s Pizza. The deli is known for putting cream cheese, bacon and/or avocado toppings on just about everything. Hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays; 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays.

For information, call 530-756-1601.

Still wondering what’s going in near Target and T.J.Maxx? Me, too.

Developer Kevin Ramos emailed this response on Wednesday: “I still don’t have any deals to report. We are working on some (leases), but it is slow going. … Sorry about that, I wish I had something to report.”

Performance 22, an athletic training center, opens this month at 912 Fifth St., Suite 300.

It caters its fitness programs for youth athletes and teams, cross-trainers and those seeking personal training. There are also open gym hours.

Owner Joshua Reese is a 2007 Davis High School and 2012 UC Davis graduate.

After two years of coaching youth camps and varsity high school sports, he realized “that what this great town is lacking is a place for young athletes to really train, and focus on what it will take for them to reach the collegiate level of sports themselves,” he said. “My goal with Performance 22 is to create an environment where teamwork is valued, discipline is regained, dedication is desired and hard work gives results.”

There’s a free demonstration class Saturday at 9 a.m. All fitness levels are welcome. For more information, call 530-219-7335 or visit its Facebook page.

P22 shares an address with Kaia F.I.T., but is divided by a wall and has separate entries. The women’s boot camp program, operating out of Davis Athletic Club, is adding this as another location. Owner Tiffany Filbert hopes to have that open by Jan. 6.

The Fitness Studio, a personal fitness center at 803 Second St. on the second floor of the Chen Building, will close Friday, Dec. 13, owner Nancy Chadwick reports.

“I will be (partially) retiring in mid-December and will close The Fitness Studio at that time,” said Chadwick, who’s also a psychotherapist. “My friend Laura Cotler, who owns Lift Pilates, will be expanding her (adjoining) Pilates studio into my space.”

Chadwick will continue a part-time therapy practice. She also will meet some of her training clients in their homes or gyms. Semi-retirement will allow her to expand her travels.

Lift Pilates will expand on Jan. 1, adding to its Pilates-based barre offerings. It’s the official Balanced Body site to train teachers in the greater Sacramento area, Cotler said. Barre is an exercise class using a ballet handrail to perform ballet, Pilates and other conditioning moves.

The former Wendy’s location at 1701 Cowell Blvd. is being completely remodeled, inside and out, in its transformation into a Carl’s Jr. It will be the second full-service Carl’s Jr. in Davis, but the only one with a drive-through. Early estimates suggested a January opening, but from the look of the construction scene last week, that’s optimistic.

————

Café Mediterranee, the Middle Eastern restaurant at 113 D St., has been closed since October. A new owner, Kitchen Counter LLC, took over in November, with a liquor license application posting the restaurant name Wind of Change.

A sign in the front window says it’s closed for December. A separate notice says the liquor license has been suspended.

————

Haute Again, one of the awesome clothing consignment stores in town, recently added a website where customers can shop online, with delivery or store pickup options. Visit http://haute-again.com. Its store is at 129 E St., Suite B-1.

————

Aria, a Woodland restaurant that closed in July, has reopened under new ownership. It’s at 614 Main St.

It offers “simple Italian dishes” featuring local ingredients, its website says.

It’s open for lunch and dinner, Mondays through Saturdays, and for brunch on Sundays. For more information, call 530-402-1399 or visit http://www.freshsimpledelicious.com/about-aria.html.

Pete’s Restaurant & Brewhouse is scheduled to open this month at 164 Main St. in Woodland, in Ruby Tuesday’s former building.

The brewhouse concept is a spinoff of Original Pete’s, which first opened in 1987 in midtown Sacramento. Today the company has a dozen locations.

The menu includes pizzas, pasta, sandwiches, burgers, wraps, salads and soups. It will feature beer made for Pete’s by Firestone Walker Brewery in Paso Robles.

Projected hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturdays, and noon to 10 p.m. Sundays.

Call 800-473-6501 or visit www.originalpetes.net/locations/woodland.
