« on: March 20, 2017, 05:39:47 PM »
Grocery Outlet: The Tustin store on Newport Avenue was originally slated to open April 20. That date has been pushed back to May 4, according to the discounted grocery chain. It is moving into the old Trader Joe’s space at 12932 Newport Ave.

Meizhou Dongpo: The sleek Chinese restaurant, which specializes in Sichuan cuisine, opened Thursday, March 16, in Irvine. The chain, founded in 1996, has dozens of locations throughout China. The restaurants have served world dignitaries and monarchy including former President Obama. In 2013, it opened its first U.S.-based restaurant at the Westfield Century City mall in Los Angeles.

The restaurant is at 15363 Culver Drive, next to Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot.

Sweet & Saucy: The bakery, which opened June 2012, closed Feb. 24 at the Crystal Cove Shopping Center. It will be replaced by Pressed Juicery, which is slated to open in November.

Valiant Brewing Co.: The craft brew start up from Orange announced plans to close March 31 after four years. Owner and head brewer Brian Schroepfer posted a lengthy goodbye note on the brewery's website on March 5. He said the brewery had become a financial burden for his family. To make ends meet, he said he often didn't take a paycheck.

Johnny Rebs’ deal: Barbecue restaurants in Orange, Long Beach and Bellflower are hosting a “Do Over Day” on Tuesday, March 21. Here’s how it works: Dine-in the restaurant on March 21 and save your receipt. If you come back to the restaurant March 22 through April 5, submit your receipt to get a “do over” of the foods you ate on March 21.

Address: 2940 E. Chapman Ave.

Dickey's Barbecue Pit: In September 2016, BBQ Ventures took over and reopened two closed Dickey's Barbecue Pit restaurants in Brea and Laguna Niguel.

Round Table Pizza: Four of six Round Table Pizza restaurants have reopened or are about to reopen after closing in December. Ted Storey, senior vice president of business development for Round Table, said neighboring franchisees have reopened the locations in Newport Beach (4551 Jamboree Road) Rancho Santa Margarita (22205 El Paseo). Closed locations in Foothill Ranch (27472 Portola Parkway) and Lake Forest (22722 Lambert St.) are being remodeled and will reopen by the end of March. Storey said the company decided not to reopen the closed locations in Irvine and Costa Mesa.
