Yucaipa’s Pizza Chalet is on the move!
Its lease was not renewed at its longtime location at 34579 Yucaipa Blvd., so the owners moved the pizzeria about a block down the street to 34299 Yucaipa Blvd., in the former Community Bank building.
The new location was scheduled to open last week, but the opening was pushed back due to problems with the gas meter installation.
For updates, check the restaurant’s Facebook page.
We definitely didn’t see this one coming.
Unbeknownst to us, downtown Redlands’ Charlie Jewell’s closed toward the end last year.
Shortly before the new year, Darby’s American Cantina opened in its place.
The new restaurant is designed to be more family-friendly than its former tenant.
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.

If you have had the chance to sample any of Sugarbird Desserts’ delicious baked goods, you know what a loss this is: Owner Heather Paul is shutting down the bakery.
She’s doing so to spend more time with her family.
While we will miss Sugarbird’s delicious treats, we applaud her choice.
“Amazing baker” is a great title to have. “Amazing mom” is an even better one.
Oh, remember back in February, when the Applebee’s in Terminal 2 at LA/Ontario International Airport shut down, “temporarily”?
Well, things haven’t gotten any better.
In fact, they’re worse.
Now, the T.G.I. Friday’s in Terminal 4 is no more.
Kealoha’s Taste of the Islands, which was resurrected in the old Honolulu Harry’s spot in Chino less than two years ago, has sailed off into the Hawaiian sunset.
In its place is Cruiser’s American Grill, featuring burgers, sandwiches, salads and other mainland specialties.
Cruiser’s is celebrating its grand opening today (November 22) through Sunday (November 24). Click the photo above to see some of the grand opening specials.
It’s been a short while since we’ve updated you all on recent restaurant changes.
Here’s a few that readers have tipped us on and a couple we’ve discovered just driving around the Inland Empire.
Head over the jump to get started.
In case you missed it, downtown Upland has lost one restaurant, is losing another, but is gaining a third.
Already closed is Aria Restaurant and Lounge, which was owned by the same folks who own Antonino’s Italian Restaurant, Haandi Indian Cuisine, Sixty 6 Sports Bar and Lounge and the Magic Lamp Inn in Rancho Cucamonga.
Facebook fan Diana reports that Charlie’s Red, White and Blue American Deli and Bar is moving into the space at 296 N. Second Ave.
In a sign that the economy still has some recovery to do, we’ve spotted four local restaurants that have closed in recent weeks.
Chino’s La Crêperie Café, an offshoot of the original in Long Beach’s Belmont Shores, has closed. The location, a former Black Angus, might’ve been just too large for La Crêperie. The original is a much more intimate location. Also, the owners have switched the small chain’s downtown Long Beach location from crepes to Mediterranean and dubbed it La Shish.
The deed is done.
fresh & easy has been sold.
And in the end, it wasn’t the expected buyers, the German company Aldi Nord, which owns Trader Joe’s.
Instead, it was the former owners of Food 4 Less and Ralphs — the Los Angeles-based Yucaipa Companies — who purchased the chain from Tesco.
