The Cooperage Sign

The Coop Is Coming To Walnut Creek

Formerly known as The Cooperage, now The Coop, one of Lafayette’s most popular restaurants is making a move into Walnut Creek’s Broadway Plaza. We are told that the move was brought about by increasing rents in the Lafayette location, and their new home will be in the space originally occupied by Bing Crosby’s, if you can remember back that far. Most recently it was Sakimoto Sushi Lounge.

Locally owned, The Coop has a varied menu including Burgers, Fried Chicken, Ribs and Grilled Salmon. Prices are fairly typical for an “almost fine dining” place and they have a loyal clientele in Lafayette. The move to Walnut Creek is expected to be complete in December.

The Hideout Kichen Takes Over From The Coop

Another very popular Lafayette restaurant, The Hideout Kitchen will move from its present somewhat hard to find location behind Mount Diablo Boulevard. Their present space is undoubtedly limited and getting a table there can sometimes be challenging.

Although a similar cuisine in some ways, The Hideout has a more interesting menu in my opinion including Blackened Salmon, Grilled Lamb Chops and a Seafood Stew. They are not abandoning their present location though, and they intend to turn it into a casual wine bar or cocktaile bar according to reports.

Melo’s Comes To Walnut Creek

Melo’s Pizza and Pasta is well known for its pizza and pasta in Danville and Pleasant Hill, but the latest location will be Melo’s Italian Table, a little more upscale place set in the old Bierhaus location on Walnut Creek’s Locust Street.

There will still be pizza and pasta, of course, but in the new location, there will be a variety regional pasta dishes, gourmet salads, and a good selection of entrees. As I write, the opening is imminent.
