Downtown Mountain View restaurant news

Original post made by Max Hauser, Old Mountain View, on Apr 18, 2016

• Jay Essadki, one of the brothers who opened Morocco's, and in 2014 The Liquid Menu juice bar (650 Castro), last month converted the juice bar to a vegetarian café, The Phoenix, featuring buffets at lunch and Saturday brunch.

•  Izzo Asian-Fusion Tapas at 246 Castro (former Cijjo space) officially opened Saturday (April 16). It's an expansion site of San José's Izzo Taiwanese restaurant, but with more emphasis on "Asian street food," owner Frank Chang told me. This restaurant has been in a soft-opening phase for a while.

•  Buffalo Beers Burgers Baos (292 Castro) officially closed for good Sunday night (April 17), to remodel for a planned reopening in a couple of months as another outpost of the same family's very successful Srasa Kitchen (Srasa, "sross," meaning fresh) on Middlefield at Whisman, offering a build-a-meal format like Asian Box, with a Cambodian flair and unusual ingredients. (I thought the one on Middlefield offered impressive flavors, and decent value.)

•  Eureka! (new tenant at 191 Castro), part of a state-wide gastropub chain mentioned here earlier Web Link , is on schedule to open in a week (Monday, April 25).
