San Bernardino Elephant Bar to be reborn as Jiro’s Japanese Restaurant

Jiro's Japanese RestaurantWe’ve been watching construction going on at the former Elephant Bar at 1050 E. Harriman Place in San Bernardino and had figured out it was going to be Jiro’s Japanese Restaurant, but then San Bernardino Sun reporter Ryan Hagen came along and filled in the blanks for us.

The new restaurant is expected to open in May.

We’re thinking it should do well, since there hasn’t been a Japanese restaurant in the Hospitality Lane area since Yamazato of Japan closed in December 2008.

Golden Corral coming to San Bernardino

Circus Vargas and the giant pumpkin patch/Christmas tree lot are going to have to find a new home.

That’s because a Golden Corral is planned for the southeast corner of Waterman Avenue and Hospitality Lane in San Bernardino — right where those temporary businesses are usually located.

It’ll be the fifth Southern California location for the buffet chain, following Hesperia, Industry, El Centro and a planned Bellflower restaurant.

No opening date has been set.
