Uh Oh

On New Year's Eve I wrote a blog entry that a new dessert restaurant in Alameda Towne Centre was going to open next to Pearl's Hamburgers. Well, two months has passed and I decided to walk over to the space to check out the progress of Fruits and Chocolates. OMG! Yikes! The restaurant bailed and got cold feet. The space is empty and the shopping center is looking for someone to lease the space.

Pearl's Hamburgers has not opened yet either. There appears to be some work going on inside the space, but no where close to opening. I wonder if the owner is slowing down and waiting it out to open when the economy improves? The restaurant is claiming they are the "Best Burger in the Bay Area."

I heard through the grapevine that Pearl's is waiting for permits before they can proceed forward.

My wife kept checking on the same store so she could buy me some chocolate covered strawberries...mmmm. Our dissapointment came at about the same time as yours. I think it would have brought more customers to that area to look at See's Candies and that shop. Now I just have to talk my wife into making me chocolate covered strawberries :)
