According to the filings in the Times-Standard this morning, the site of the late lamented GoGo Bistro in Henderson Center is going to reopen as “The Caribbean Picnic” and the short-lived Luna effort on 5th Street, the New Moon Cafe, is becoming the “Gonzales Mexican Restaurant.” Good luck to both efforts. When I first moved back here, I couldn’t believe the number of Mexican restaurants in Eureka, but they’re all surviving. They move, they change, but they never actually go out of business (with the exception of the moribund place catty-corner from the SBDC, where I never saw a single person actually EAT anything. They’re apparently reopening but I couldn’t find anyone on the premises). Really curious to see the menu at the Caribbean picnic place. Something a little different!
“(with the exception of the moribund place catty-corner from the SBDC, where I never saw a single person actually EAT anything.”
You referring to El Corral, at the corner of 6th and E streets? Closed not long ago. I don’t believe I ever saw anyone inside, or coming and going from there in over forty years living up here.
Yes, I was starting to wonder if it was some kind of money-laundering outfit but there wasn’t any traffic at all. The new place will apparently feature soup.
” I was starting to wonder if it was some kind of money-laundering outfit…”
I’ve wondered the same thing myself.
Word is, Phil from Mitey Nice Bakery, famous for the short-lived cupcake shop on 5th is opening at the corner of 6th and E, across from Picky3. That’s the word on the street, at least.
Thanks, Ross. 6th and E is an underserved location so Phil should do well there.
