The long-awaited Glendora Public Market is ready to open its doors soon. The 19,000 square-foot former Wonder Bread bakery has been turned over by developer Shaw Investments and will now include nearly a dozen standalone vendors as well as an open courtyard and 20-foot ceilings. The proposed vendors include anchor tenant Smog City Brewing as well as Jinya Ramen Bar, the Taco Man, Portside Fish Co., Belly Bombz, Steelhead Coffee, Bolo, plus a boba shop, ice cream spot, bagel place, and a rotating 530-square-foot stand for temporary pop-up vendors. The plan is to open early next month, with a variety of coronavirus-related precautions in place.

And in other news:

— Spago has officially reopened for in-restaurant dining, with weekly COVID-19 tests for staff. And, right on time, Josiah Citrin is doing a retro menu for Melisse/Citrin this weekend that will act as an homage to chef Wolfgang Puck, complete with Citrin’s own take on things like the smoked salmon pizza.

— Atwater Village’s Moon Room (in the former Griffin space) is now open for distanced brunch.

— Meanwhile, Atwater’s Sun Hai Inn Chinese restaurant has closed, leaving a note on the front door that noted the restaurant would be “closed forever,” in part because “COVID-19 defeated us.”

— Shibumi reopens June 24. The star Downtown Japanese restaurant is doing a variety of dishes and even selling swag like bespoke clothing.

— Sweetgreen has opened a gorgeous new outlet in Pasadena at 600 E. Colorado Boulevard, taking over a stunning Art Deco building.

Imperial Western Beer Co. is back in action as of yesterday, keeping afternoon/evening hours with a new menu that leans into sausages, fries, and steins of beer.
