As announced earlier this year, Riverside’s Phood on Main served its final meals last month.
Owners Marla Cohen and Lyn Cloninger’s side business with a PG-13 name has taken off, and the duo has shut down the restaurant to focus on manufacturing and distributing their line of spices, which we’ll just call SSS for short.
Phood on Main, 3737 Main St., Suite 100, had been in downtown Riverside for seven years.

Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour just announced its Black Friday deals, which include bonus gift cards and a free sundae when you purchase a $25 gift card.
Guests who purchase $25 in gift cards on Friday (November 29) will receive two bonus $5 gift cards (valid January 2 through July 2, 2014, not valid on merchandise, candy store purchases, or alcohol), a $35 total value.
Not only that, but anyone who purchases a gift card on Friday will receive a free sundae coupon…a perfect way to reward yourself a long day of standing in the checkout line.
Attendees will be able to sample from more than a dozen Inland Empire breweries (and a few others) at the event.
You gotta have food to soak up all that beer, so the organizers have scheduled nine food trucks for your dining pleasure.
General admission tickets are $35 (plus a $2.92 service fee if purchased online) and grant you admission from 1 to 5 p.m., live entertainment by the ’80z All-Stars and DJ Steveo, and 15 four-ounce beer samples.
Food trucks will be returning to downtown Riverside in another food truck rally tomorrow (October 22).
The event will again take place in the parking lot of the County Administration Center, 4080 Lemon St. It will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., though some trucks won’t be available ’til 10 a.m.
Organizers have scheduled 20 trucks, compared to about a dozen trucks recruited for the original (well-attended) rally back in June.
The event coincides with the county’s Board of Supervisors meeting.
The county is investigating changing Ordinance No. 580, which pertains to food trucks, which bans most hot food trucks. Riverside County is currently the only county in the state which bans the trucks from operating on a daily basis.
