Restaurant comings and goings

We have two new restaurants now open in the district.

The first is "O My Dawg" an unassuming restaurant at 463 2nd Street near the corner of 2nd and Broadway. They are serving a tasty variety of authentic wieners and frites (German hot dogs and fries) with sauces like parsley wasabi and curry ketchup. Currently they are open daily 11:30am to 7pm and are already getting rave reviews on Yelp. If you visit O My Dawg please let them know you heard about them from the JLDA newsletter.

More upscale is the newly refurbished Miss Pearls Jam House (formerly Jacks Bistro) at Jack London Square in the bottom of the Waterfront Hotel. Just head for palm trees atop the grassy knoll and you can't miss it. According to their website they feature "gourmet New World island-inspired cuisine using the freshest ingredients and complementing the restaurant’s diverse wine and cocktail lists". Check their website for the rest of the info.

Finally, The Lucky Panda Chinese restaurant on Broadway is now closed and the space is up for rent.
