The adorable gift shop nestware will close in February after a decade in business, owners Rosalie Payne and Lynne Ferda announced Thursday. A “moving-on sale” began Friday, and will continue for 10 days or so. It’s at 207B F St., in the E Street Plaza.

“When it becomes apparent that there’s no more to sell, we will wrap it up,” Ferda told me by email.

In an eloquent email to sent customers on Thursday, the owners wrote, “A mere blink ago we decided to pour ourselves into this adventure called nestware. … Ten years later, we find ourselves ready for new adventures. It’s time to move on. As we bid adieu to nestware and a remarkable decade of prosperity and friendship, each thought of reflection is punctuated by tremendous gratitude.

“We have many to thank but the list is too long. So, we send these thoughts of deep appreciation to those who made this all possible. … This message is a humble nod of acknowledgement, and a wish that you also know the sweet surprises and bountiful goodness that come of daring to dream and daring to do as big as you desire.”

Krush Burger will open its Davis restaurant at 11 a.m. on Monday, “Chief Burger Flipper” Davin Vculek confirmed by phone on Thursday.

It’s in The Marketplace, at 1411 W. Covell Blvd., filling the spot last occupied by Rostini Italian Kitchen.

The menu features “Our famous Mini Burgers, combined with 12 microbrews on tap,” Vculek said. There are six different mini burgers — four beef and two seafood — sold in mixable two-packs. Other items include fries, tots, salads, shakes and soft drinks. Visit http://www.krushburger.com for details.

The burger meat is a “soft grind,” which Vculek said makes them “airy” and more flavorful. Burgers are served on brioche buns. Another part of its concept is its focus on local craft beer, and — following a new trend — wine on tap from a keg.

Patrons will order at the counter, and a table pager will alert them when their meal is ready.

Yakitori Yuchan, a Japanese barbecue restaurant, is coming to the former Beach Hut Deli space in The Lofts, at 109 E St.

Owner Yuji Yokoyama of Roseville, who owns sushi restaurants in that area, said he’s “excited to have a new business in Davis.”

The casual fare will be different from any other Japanese food in the area, Yokoyama said, comparing it to Spanish tapas. Instead of sushi, Yakitori Yuchan will offer small plates of skewered chicken, veggies and seafood. The barbecue uses special charcoal imported from Japan. Beverages will include beer, wine and sake.

Beach Hut Deli moved to 4515 Fermi Place, across from Target, reopening in December.

The Davis Tako Korean BBQ may open next weekend, Feb. 8 or 9, marketing rep Andy Duong said Thursday. The Korean/Mexican fusion restaurant replaces El Mariachi, which closed last month at the corner of Fourth and G streets in downtown Davis.

The menu will include things like tacos, burritos, quesadillas, sliders, rice or salad bowls, and nachos.  Visit http://www.sactako.com for more information.

Davis Awards & Watchworks, at 716 Second St., had its last day on Friday, closing after exactly 20 years.

One of its employees is opening a similar store, Davis Awards and More. It’s planned for 1340 E. Covell Blvd., Suite 102, in the Nugget shopping center.

There’s some action at the former Dimple Records spot at 212 F St. The landlord, Ashok Patel, said Thursday he is negotiating with prospective tenants, but cannot offer details until after he has a signed lease.

Bob and Leslie Johnston opened E Street Salon on Jan. 4. It’s at 212 E St., in the E Street Plaza.

“The salon currently employs six stylists, all offering a full line of services for both men and women, from wash and cuts to color to hair straightening,” Bob Johnston said in an email.

Call 530-564-4965. Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome, he said.

He complimented landlord John Brinley of Brinley Properties, who helped the couple in finding a space and making the improvements.

And for those of you who keep asking about the future stores next to Target and T.J.Maxx, here’s an email update from developer Kevin Ramos of Buzz Oates Group of Companies:

“Wendy, nothing we can release yet but hopefully in 30 days. Your patience and persistence will pay off.”
