Paesanos brings Italian food back to Fuzio’s old spot

From page A6 | September 9, 2011 |

Paesanos III in Davis debuted Thursday. It took over the former Fuzio’s spot at 139 G St.

The Italian restaurant opens at 11 a.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. for brunch on weekends. It’s open until 9 p.m. Sundays through Wednesdays, 9:30 p.m. on Thursdays and 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. It features pizza, and Italian and American food, including sandwiches, salads and appetizers. Call (530) 758-8646.


Although employees won’t confirm an official closing date, Borders sent an email to customers on Wednesday that it was in its final week. Another one was sent on Sept. 4 saying it was in its final 10 days. That would put the last day around Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Published reports say there is interest from junior clothing retailers and grocers for the bookseller’s site in Davis Commons, though clothing was considered more likely.

Ariel Fox, with the Sacramento brokerage firm Retail West, confirmed last week that “there are multiple national tenants that are interested in the space but no deal has been finalized. The space is also still tied up in the legal system.”


Blue Elephant, the used furniture store at 213 E St. in the former Discoveries space, has closed. That’s to make room for Luigi’s Slice, a Sacramento pizza parlor with an all-ages music venue.

Restaurant management hopes to open it this fall.


Nearby, the DeVere’s Irish Pub is still under construction at 217 E St. It’s taking over the spot at last held by Soga’s.

The Sacramento restaurant is at 1521 L St. Its menu features traditional meals like shepherd’s pie, fish and chips, Irish stew and Reuben sandwiches. It serves 20-ounce pints of stout, ale or cider, as well as fine Irish whiskeys and, of course, Irish coffee. Visit for more information.


G Street WunderBar in the former G Street Pub spot at 228 G St., may open this month.

The pub, which has been completely remodeled, has video games, dart boards and pool tables. There will be pool tournaments on Sundays and karaoke on Mondays. A new stage will feature live bands on Friday nights.


The Craft of Fo’ Paws has moved again — this time to Woodland. Tom Martinez, who owns the business with his sister, Terri Martinez, said the pet-grooming business moved to 773 East St., in Woodland’s Olive Tree Plaza.

The business lost its lease at its H Street location in Davis, then had a temporary home at the Davis Ace rock yard before moving to Woodland. For information, call (530) 759-8316.


The automotive repair shop J&J Automotive, at 1055 Olive Drive, has closed. Its phone number is not accepting calls or messages, a recording says.


The Davis furniture store Design House is looking for a tenant for part of its showroom space, saleswoman Lynn Tracy confirmed.

The store, at 1015 Olive Drive, has 1,800 square feet saved for a complementary business. The store already leases its outside space to the garden and gift shop Beyond The Garden Gate.


Massage Therapy Institute opened recently at 424 F St., Suite B. The owner of the massage training center is Julie Reynolds.

It took over the spot formerly occupied by the green building design center Casa Verde Designs, which moved around the corner to Fifth Street, across from Dairy Queen. Call (530) 753-4428 or go to


Star Ginger, an Asian food truck, opened Aug. 24 at UC Davis. It features Thai and Vietnamese food, mainly Bahn Mi sandwiches and rice bowls.

It posts its location on Facebook. It’s usually around the Silo. Visit

There’s also a new Starbucks Coffee at The ARC, with another coming to the Silo this fall.
