Jack’s Urban Eats opened Thursday in The Marketplace.

The concept is similar to Pluto’s, and is popular with young people, partner Bobby Coyote said on opening day. Its custom, quick-service menu features carver sandwiches, buildable salads, chicken strips, and specialty sides like sweet potato fries or Urban Fries with blue cheese and chili oil; mac & cheese; mashed potatoes; fresh baked breads and cheese bread.

Beer and wine will be offered once the patio fencing is complete later this month, Coyote said.

Along with dinner, The Mustard Seed restaurant now serves breakfast and lunch at 222 D St.

The restaurant changed hands a couple of months ago. Steve and Lynn Kwon purchased it from Paul and Robyn Bergman, who opened it in 1985.

The Kwons’ daughter, Esther, 21, is a UC Davis student who serves as its manager. She said Friday that the hectic pace helps her manage the stress of being an undergrad.

The family has kept the popular lunch and dinner menu established by the former owners. Many former staff members remain or have returned, including the Bergmans’ son, Joshua, who is one of three chefs. Their new breakfasts include omelets, French toast, Lemony Ricotta Pancakes, Eggs Florentine Benedict, and eggs with bacon or sausage.

Esther said her parents fell in love with the restaurant when they came to Davis to visit. They have owned restaurants in Southern California since she and her older brother were little, and were excited to move here from Riverside.

Breakfast is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesdays through Sundays, with lunch items offered from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dinner hours are 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays. No reservations are needed, except for large parties. Its website is http://www.mustardseeddavis.com/

Next door, Antiques Plus remains open until its inventory is depleted. The owner is taking offers on remaining furniture, antiques, artwork and store fixtures.

Wingstop is scheduled to open Wednesday at 408 G St. The take-out restaurant makes Buffalo wings to order, with lots of choices for sauces.

Goodwill opened April 25 at 1640 E. Eighth St. Its hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.

The Davis Warehouse, an indoor batting and training training facility at 17C Arboretum Drive, closed on Friday.

Luci’s Salon, in the E Street Plaza, is moving this weekend. It’s scheduled to reopen on Thursday at 222 D St., Suite 9A, its website says.

Another Blockbuster video store is closing. This time in Woodland, according to published reports.

Woodland’s Blockbuster, 2 W. Court St., will close sometime in June.

Literary specialist Michel A. Johnson is opening her own practice, The Savvy Reader, starting June 10, at 423 E St.

Johnson teaches language and literacy to native and non-native speakers. She specializes in Spanish and English learners, and language-based learning disabilities like dyslexia.

“Based on multi-sensory, evidence and research-based methodologies, The Savvy Reader offers services to children and adults, aiming to bring success and confidence to all struggling learners,” her Facebook page says.

Reach her at 530-798-0791 or [email protected].

On a personal note, I left my UC Davis communications job last month to take on a growing demand for freelance editing, writing and design. I produce some local email newsletters, and will help the city with outreach this summer for its downtown road construction projects. Hopefully this will give me more time to work on this column — at more reasonable hours.

Still coming soon to Davis:

  • The Melt (grilled cheese) in Davis Commons, downtown, in late August
  • Massage Heights in The Marketplace in North Davis
  • Yogurtland (frozen yogurt) in The Marketplace
  • Family Dollar in Westlake Plaza in West Davis, later this year
