Lee’s Deli gives the dish on its concept

Lee’s Deli, at the east end of University Mall, may open later this month, as soon as Aug. 12, a spokeswoman said.

The family-owned chain has a dozen locations in San Francisco and one in Berkeley.

The Davis menu includes “made-to-order deli sandwiches, Japanese ramen, Chinese wonton noodle soup, Vietnamese sandwiches; a self-serve soup bar; as well as a self-serve/pay-by-weight salad bar and hot food bar,” spokeswoman Liane said. “Our salad bar offers a wide selection of salad ingredients, prepared salads, fresh-cut fruit, sushi; and our hot food bar offers hot breakfast items (in the morning) and many different Chinese dishes and dim sum.

“Our concept is entirely customizable. For example, someone could fill a container with their favorite salad combo, one piece of sushi, some steamed Chinese fish, a shrimp dumpling, and a little orange chicken, all in the same container. They can take as little or as much as they want and just weigh it at the cashier. …

“We’ll have seating for those who want to eat in, but it’s really convenient for those who don’t have time for a long sit-down meal or those who want to buy a quick bowl of ramen or wonton noodles or a salad to take home for dinner.”

The store’s address is 737 Russell Blvd. For more information, visit http://www.leesdeli.com.

Inside University Mall, T&M Bike Shop is open at 825 Russell Blvd., Suite 29. That’s in the former Clockworks location.

Next to it, Suite 27 is empty, and there’s a new business license for a restaurant called Ramen Hook.

Party & Vac, which contained The Party Store and Kelly’s Sew & Vac, is closed at 1774 E. Eighth St. in the Davis Manor shopping center.

Next door at 1170 E. Eighth St., High Grade Harvest, hydroponics and gardening supplies, opened last year.

Executive Alterations and Formal Wear has its soft opening on Monday, with a grand opening in early September, owner Lydia Chu said. Chu also owns three Executive Cleaners locations in Davis. The new one is at 764 Fifth St.

“We’re also incorporating something new, by buying gently used formal dresses and either reselling them or renting them out for special occasions,” Chu wrote in an email. “So, we’ll be renting out not just tuxedos for men, but formal dresses for women as well! We’re really excited about this new addition.”

There’s a new business license for an eatery at 210 E St. called Sweet and Shavery. Is it a candy and shave ice place? I don’t know, but I’ll find out.

The store would fill the former downstairs piece of Balance Point Pilates Studio, which is now exclusively upstairs at 209 F St., Suite A, in the same Brinley Building.

For those of you who missed my column last week, the longtime fast-food restaurant at 909 Fifth St., Dairy Queen, recently known as Davis Burgers and Shakes, closed on Wednesday. I took my boys there on Tuesday, and owner Shahid Iqbal thanked patrons for their support.

Bowling may return to Woodland, according to a story in The Daily Democrat. Woodhaven Lanes bowling alley at 154 Main St. is being remodeled with plans to open later this year. The building remains for sale, the story reports.
