â€¢Â Izzo Asian-Fusion Tapas at 246 Castro (former Cijjo space) officially opened Saturday (April 16). It's an expansion site of San JosÃ©'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.
â€¢Â 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.)
â€¢Â 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).Â
