In the same blog I mentioned Natalie's Rascals (Pet Spa), and China One restaurant too. Today my shih tzu Vinny has a date with Natalie.
Well, both of those establishments have been up and running for quite awhile now, but Yellow Basket is still more than a month away.
|As the Yellow Basket site looked in early August 2015|
In fact, in the time between the August blog (link) and now, El Pollo Loco has managed to open its doors in the same center. Granted, they didn't need to construct a building from the ground up, but still... they're there. Also a new yogurt place has taken over the old White Lime Frozen Yogurt spot, called Yogurt Valley, is opened for business.
|Looking good from the outside, but the inside appears to have no upgrades in it yet.|
I asked the super at the Yellow Basket construction office if they had an opening date in sight yet. He looked a bit beleaguered (perhaps it was the time of day) and said, "February" with a bit of hesitation.
When I asked back in August the guesstimate was mid October.
|The outside is nearing completion. It'll be good once the entire parking lot is available again.|
I didn't want to take too much of his time on a Friday afternoon, so I wished him good luck, and hoped they could finish ahead of the promised El Niño rains. He agreed, especially because they have a large open trench at the moment.
|This trench was easily approaching five feet deep.|
If you've ever eaten at a Yellow Basket, let me know what you thought of it.
