Bruno’s on Fourth: The cozy space formerly known as Rubix (formerly known as Café de Croissants) has been transformed into a breakfast and lunch spot featuring American comfort foods with an Italian twist. Currently they’re open Tuesday through Sunday and will be starting dinner service in June. 1226 Fourth St., Santa Rosa. 707.569.8222.
SEA Thai: Interior work continues as Petaluma’s favorite Thai spot comes to the former East West Café spot in Montgomery Village. BiteClub has circled the parking lot several times (along with curious others) waiting for some news on the opening date. 2323 Sonoma Ave., Santa Rosa, 546.6142
Japanese Steak House: Apparently the Wonderful Buffet off Summerfield Road wasn’t. The space is in the midst of becoming a brand-spanking new Japanese restaurant with a focus on steak. No word on opening, but stay tuned for details. If you go, head out on a Friday when next door neighbor, Asia Gourmet Market (also at 4100 Montgomery Drive, Santa Rosa, 537.6888) serves up fresh BBQ pork buns.
