Newsbits around Marin. What's happening to our vegetarian restaurants? Although we've gained Cafe Gratitude lately, I've found that we've been losing favorite vegetarian restaurants right and left... Lydia's Lovin' Foods has closed in Fairfax (I've put her other operation under "Marin Food Favorites"), and Paradise Restaurant in San Rafael has closed and looks like an all-you-can-eat Beef Pho place is coming into the same space! And yes, I'm still mourning the shuttering of Roxanne's in Larkspur although it has been a couple years. New shoots coming up. Moving to other news, it's good to hear that Eat is opening soon in Ted's old space in San Anselmo, and will be offering Sunday brunch, maybe even as early as Mother's Day! I've also noticed some movement on the old Samurai property on Bridgeway in Sausalito -- there are some experimental-looking paint stripes on the front, and the big FOR LEASE sign is down. A reader tip also lead me to contact Jennie Low's in Mill Valley, and yes it's true the restaurant is closing - in July - and they are opening a Petaluma branch as well as continuing their Novato operation.
