When the dynasty gets this dynamic, there are constant updates. Whaling Station is running nicely. Bar menu has been enhanced with the addition of a killer open-faced barbecued beef (shaved prime rib) sandwich. More on the way.

New items at The Beach House at Lovers Point (375-2345) include imported truffled gnocchi ($18),  Italian sausage with cannellini beans and fresh basil ($11), steamed clams tarragon butter brodo ($13) and seared scallops with crisped prosciutto ($18). Their bid for a downstairs cafe continues to be contentious.

We have decided on a name change and re-launch concept for Rappa's and are working with several sign companied to come up with the best new look. At the same time, we will dramatically change the look of the exterior and launch our new locals' menu.

As for PG, we are headed to another public hearing on 9/18, having just prevailed over a concerned citizen's appeal of the City's approval. We expect to prevail (again) then get appealed to the City Council. Coastal Commission is also involved and recently sent us a 27-page appllcation. All this for an 816 square foot space!!

Bahama Grille (676-3568) on South Main in Salinas has new hours, 11am-9pm Tuesday through Sunday, with happy hour 3-6pm.

Sadly, patio improvements for Abalonetti (heaters, lights and a fire pit) are also mired in red tape. Coastal once again...
