  1. Any idea what's going to go in at the former E&O Trading space? I sure miss that spot.

  2. Last I heard it was going to be a high-end Greek restaurant. Haven't heard any updates on it for a while though.

  3. What about the corner of Santa Clara and San Pedro? I think it used to be Blake's steakhouse?

  4. That used to be Spiedo. No news on that but they may try to subdivide it. It's a massive space with a full basement.
