Dolci Mango, a European-style frozen yogurt shop, is opening in the Terraces on the Trader Joe’s level.

The owner of Think Café and Think Bistro is opening a steakhouse on Western Avenue where the Blue Crab recently closed. Now those provocative signs make sense …

The café at Port Town Plaza (formerly Caffé Port Town) will re-open under a new name and new management at the 8th Street Lofts complex.

A Lebanese restaurant is opening at 19th Street and Pacific Avenue.

Monster Burger is opening on Gaffey Street a few blocks before the freeway onramp, next to the newly remodeled Taco Bell.
