New Restaurants Coming Soon

I was driving down Stevens Creek Blvd yesterday and I noticed an Islands Restaurant is being built in the shopping center across the street from Target, near Pizza Hut.  Happy Day!!  :)  

Later that evening, I read a California Pizza Kitchen is planned for Cupertino as well.  Awesome!  :)

That's great news for Cupertino/West San Jose diners...  It's also great news for our economy.  When you start seeing restaurants planned like that in your neighborhood, it's a good indicator of how confident investors are in the local economy.  As painful as the economy has been for so many over the last few years, seeing restaurants like that planned is like seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.  It's something tangible you can grasp onto when hearing experts talking about a recovery few people have been able to feel yet.  It's definitely something to be pleased about.

I can't wait until they open.  I've always enjoyed eating at Islands and California Pizza Kitchen.  It'll be really nice to have them nearby.
