  1. I knew June 2nd was too optimistic a date for Seattles reopening. Is it July, or June, 10th which they are now aiming for? I hope the relocation just a toss away is all that’s needed for them to attract more customers in this economy.

    Crocodile: I’m glad they’re renaming it – just about any name wooda been better than that!

  2. @cafe — Agreed on the Crocodile name change. I always thought it was yet another gimmicky chain restaurant, just because of the name. I always avoided it for that reason. I think the name change will help folks know that it is local. It’s a great location, and after lunch, you can go for a nice Clover coffee at Tazza Bianca!

  3. Yay! This is so encouraging after seeing closure after closure. I want something in the old Wheatberry space ASAP.

  8. I know! We need more trendy and GOOD restaurants in Pasadena! I wouldn’t mind a few more ethnic restaurants either.

  9. Thanks Jimmy. I am looking forward to BLD opening in Pasadena (as well as at St. Vibiana in Downtown LA!).
