Bui's the BenDean replacement.
Epicurious opened in March.
isn't there another one a little further up on Solano - used to be little Shin Shin - now Vanessa's

Can you give us a time frame? What's new this week? This month? Last six months? Last year?

No menu up yet. Looks like they didn't get the late hours they wanted (surprise, surprise).
