The Mexican restaurant Tacos & Beer closed April 28, a year to the month after it opened at 715 Second St., the former longtime site for Togo’s sandwiches.

But there’s already a replacement in the works: Bombay Dreams Restaurant will serve Indian and Nepalese food. A man I spoke with on Thursday said his family hopes to have it open by the end of the month.

A Paesanos pizza may be headed to downtown Davis, but company officials are not ready to confirm the location.

Business partners Dave Virga and Mark Scribner, who own Uncle Vito’s Slice of New York pizza at Second and F streets, own two Paesanos — in midtown Sacramento and Elk Grove — and are looking to add a Davis location, several sources say. Messages left for the owners have not been returned.

The larger midtown restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, with gourmet Italian pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, salads and Italian appetizers.

Let Them Eat Cake, the cute but hidden cupcake bakery at 423 L St., Suite B, will move this summer to 310 C St., in the sweet spot between Yolo Berry Yogurt and Burgers & Brew, according to its Facebook page.

The location is the former home of Smooth As Silk, whose owner, Stella Forbes, has decided to stay at the spa’s new address, 305 D St. It had to move when a tree fell on its roof during March storms.

The consignment-clothing store Jacksonfly was set to reopen as soon as this weekend at 820 Fourth St. It closed in late January at its former downtown spot behind Peet’s Coffee & Tea.

“Jacksonfly is your source in Davis … for new, used and vintage clothing. We offer our customers the lowest prices on the finest clothing we can find,” its Facebook page says.

You may have read in The Enterprise this week that an Embassy Suites will replace University Park Inn & Suites at Richards Boulevard, between Olive Drive and Interstate 80. The expansion may also displace Caffé Italia, but not close it. Owners Shar and Kevin Katz are looking to relocate the popular pasta place.

AAA Insurance has opened a Davis sales office at 408 G St., in the RE/MAX Fold Real Estate Center.

Hours are 8:30 to 5:30 p.m. weekdays. It offers auto, home and rental property insurance among other services. Call (530) 757-8200.

Darrin Bell is the new owner of the Davis’ Chem Dry carpet cleaning company, now dubbed Bell’s Chem Dry. Its former name was Chris’ Chem Dry. Bell also operates franchises serving Dixon, Vacaville, Fairfield and Suisun, according to the May edition of the Davis Chamber of Commerce’s Viewpoint newsletter.

For information, go to http://bellschemdry.com or call (530) 758-2960.

The Taco Bell at 425 G Street downtown is closed for remodeling for four weeks, a sign says.

Creative Hair, between CVS and Nugget in Oak Tree Plaza, has changed hands. The new owners are Andre Janitzky and Luz Gomez, who said they got some calls from concerned customers last week after my May 1 column ran.

It mentioned that former salon owner Karen Philleo moved to Woodland, opening Hair By Karen. Creative Hair did not move.
