The Measure M supporters are doing everything they can to keep new customers away from Menlo Park. Look what happens when you have offices that provide such customers:
"NEW RESTAURANTS FLOCK TO DOWNTOWN ... A trio of new restaurants in downtown Palo Alto are in various stages of construction. The first out the gate is expected to be Alkymists, a new fusion restaurant at 140 University Ave., which Palo Alto Grill. The next space scheduled to open is Zola, local restaurateur Guillaume Biennaime's French restaurant. He has gutted the former location of the short-lived Roast Shop at 565 Bryant St. to open his new venture. And Sushirrito is taking over the long and narrow 1,300 square-foot-space at 448 University Ave., which formerly belonged to a string of restaurants -- the most recent was Sabrosa Taqueria. Other previous tenants were Hyderabad House and Thyme to Eat. Known for its sushi burritos in multiple San Francisco locations, Sushirrito is tentatively looking at a fall opening in Palo Alto.
