The owner of Huku Japanese Bistro reportedly pulled his plans to open a restaurant in the El Macero Shopping Center.

“I don’t know when we can open the restaurant,” Jaejin Kim said. “We need to restart every step again, because we are going to change the spot.”

Kim, who also owns the new Ramen Hook inside University Mall, didn’t explain the change. Huku’s concept is for traditional Japanese food with bento boxes, rolls and sashimi.

The four businesses being displaced by the redevelopment of a building at Third and G streets have found new homes, the property manager reports.

“The property owner and I are excited and very pleased to report we’ve helped all four businesses find new, great nearby locations,” said Donna Gary of Progressive Property Management.

The first tenant was Tibet Nepal, which opened in May at 233 F St.

Jeeba Jewelry will move to a suite in the adjacent Court ’N Cedar courtyard in July. Owner Jason Dayne remains at 712 Third St. through June.

Next door, Nails Only is waiting for plans to be approved for a new location on D Street. It will expand services to include massage and facials. Maybe a name change is in order?

And Razor’s Edge Barber Shop owner Sukh Banwait should be excited to find a site. In July, he’s moving his business to the Depot Building at Second and G streets. It will fill part of the space formerly occupied by French Cuff Consignment. The large suite will be converted into two. No news on the second tenant.

“I’m thrilled to have helped find new homes for these longtime, dedicated and popular contributors to our Davis downtown,” Gary said.

The Subway sandwich shop at 13o G St. is back open after remodeling.

Wind of Change, the restaurant replacing Café Mediterranee at 113 D St., is finishing construction of the deck and interior. General Manager Roxy Bocu said, “The estimated opening date now is toward the end of this month.” Earlier, she described the food as “mainly American style cuisine with French and Mediterranean fusion delicacies.”

Changes to Third Street are taking shape, and the city and Davis Downtown are urging locals to support affected businesses during the summer transition. Those impacted include ciocolat, Sam’s Mediterranean Cuisine, Pho King 4, Ali Baba, Third & U Café, Raja’s Tandoor, Oshio Café, Davis Textbooks and Maria Ogrydziak, architect.

The Third Street Improvement project is designed to create a gateway from B Street downtown toward UC Davis, and establish it as a formal entry onto campus. The project will make the area more bike- and pedestrian-friendly, with wider sidewalks, better lighting, more outside seating at restaurants, and more space for special events.

For aesthetics, the overhead utility lines will be moved underground and the poles removed, and the street will be repaved. Renovations will improve storm water drainage as well.

FIT House just acquired a second home — this one downtown. On Thursday, the fitness studio, with home base at 630 Peña Drive, Suite 500, moved its popular SpinFIT classes to 817 Fourth St., downtown. Former tenants at that spot include Davis Strength and Conditioning and Bo Tree.

Using Spinning bikes, SpinFIT classes incorporate weights and push-ups for a full-body workout. All other classes, including yoga, boot camp, personal training, barre and Pilates, remain at the Peña location.

Kelly-Moore Paints, which is opening a store soon at 4120 Chiles Road, has not set an opening date, a spokeswoman said.

After two years of planning, Yolo Brewing Company opened to the public on Thursday. The personal brewery and taproom is at 1520 Terminal St. in West Sacramento.

Owner Mike Costello founded Brew It Up!, a personal brewery that began in The Marketplace in Davis. It moved to Sacramento, adding a bar and restaurant, and later closed.

Starting today, hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays, 3 to 10 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays. “Yolo Brewing Company looks forward to connecting with craft beer fans in Davis!” Costello wrote on the Comings & Goings Facebook page. Cheers, and happy Father’s Day!
