It was a shock to hear that Rostini’s Italian Kitchen closed last week. My family just ate there the Friday before, and it was so busy we had to wait for a table.

The Marketplace eatery was at 1411 W. Covell Blvd., No. 111. It was the first of its kind from the Mary’s Pizza Shack chain, featuring a “fast-casual” concept. Two requests for comment from company officials went unanswered.

Huong Lan Sandwiches, a Vietnamese sandwich shop, is open at 213 E St., Suite A. The spot was most recently occupied by International Bistro.

Vietnamese sandwiches, or bánh mì, feature steamed, barbecued or pulled pork or chicken. Fish, tofu, headcheese and paté are other options. The rolls are also stuffed with vegetables like carrots, cucumber and cilantro. Other menu items include American sandwiches, spring rolls and other fried foods, Asian desserts and tapioca drinks and teas.

Its website is http://huonglansandwichesdavis.com/. Hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends.

Paulina’s Boutique just moved to 207 F St., Suite A. The women’s clothing store, nestled between Armadillo Music and nestware, had a grand opening celebration on Friday.

The boutique fills the former space of The Luxury Out House Company, which apparently closed its Davis outlet but still sells its bath products online.

Paulina’s opened in July at 222 D St., Suite 9A, sharing a space with Bohème Hip Used Clothing, which recently moved to 409 Third St.

“All the clothes are classic and comfortable, everything is soft and beautiful,” owner Paulina Jacobs-Sanders reports. “I have casual wear as well as clothes for special occasions.  I continue to do swimwear year-round, in sizes 0-22.”

Speaking of women’s clothing stores, The Wardrobe was closed Jan. 28-30 for some renovations. The store, at 206 E St., is back open with new interior paint, carpeting and “bright dressing rooms,” its Facebook page says.

The Gap, on First Street in Davis Commons, just remodeled, expanding its Gap Body line to add more lingerie, especially bras.

Hallmark Inn is coming close to finishing its remodeling project, adding three retail spaces to its ground floor along F Street. The hotel renovated its breakfast area into a sandwich shop and deli called Café 110, which is scheduled to open as soon as mid-March, Hallmark Inn manager Marisa Schaffer reports. Massage Envy already opened, but a tenant for the third space has not been announced.

A proposal in Woodland would turn the former Dubach Park into a wakeboarding water park.

If permits and construction go as planned, Velocity Island Park could be operational as soon as fall, Love Ride operator Scott Hartmann — a 1998 Davis High graduate — said in published reports. The wakeboarding cable park would be north of Interstate 5, at 775 N. East St.

This style park uses cables rather than boats to pull wakeboarders. Wakeboards are short, wide waterskis that allow more agility and tricks than traditional skis. Other sports might include wakeskating, wakesurfing, waterskiing and knee boarding.

As reported last week in The Enterprise, a Walmart Neighborhood Market will fill the old Mervyn’s spot in Woodland’s County Fair Fashion Mall, at East Street and Gibson Road in Woodland.

The store will offer “a full supermarket line of fresh, affordable groceries, as well as household products, pet supplies and pharmacy services,” a news release said.

Construction is under way, with plans to open the store in the second half of the year. Woodland already has a traditional Walmart on East Main Street.
