There hasn’t been a Downtown Davis wrap-up column since October, so I’ll have to give you some quick bites on the Comings & Goings news since then. These are all updates from ongoing coverage of downtown businesses. To read more, visit http://davisenterprise.com/wendy.

The following downtown bars, restaurants and food stores were in the news:

University of Beer, a bar with 60 drafts, opened in December at 615 Third St.

Taqueria El Burrito opened in November in the former Great Wall of China II space at 223 F St., in the E Street Plaza.

Dairy Queen will remain open through the warm months, while the owner negotiates with the franchise over who will pay for approximately $50,000 in mandated accessibility improvements. The restaurant is at 909 Fifth St.

Whole Foods Market opened in October. The natural foods store fills the former Borders space at 500 First St. in Davis Commons.

International Bistro closed in January. The Nepalese and Vietnamese restaurant was open for less than three months at 213 E St., Suite A. Huong Lan Sandwiches, a Vietnamese sandwich shop, opened soon after.

Hallmark Inn is coming close to finishing its remodeling project, adding three retail spaces to its ground floor in the 100 block of F Street. The hotel renovated its breakfast area into a sandwich shop and deli called Café 110, which is scheduled to open soon, Hallmark Inn manager Marisa Schaffer reports.
