While perusing thru the Irvine Spectrum Directory last week to see where Sur La Table will be opening their newest store, I saw that The Veggie Grill, will be opening a location in the Spectrum. They will be next to Chipotle and across from the CrepeMaker. Their website doesn’t have a date, but I’ll swing by the Spectrum tomorrow to scope it out.

That’s not all happening around that space. Johnny Rockets will be moving their current location to this front facing site this month as well. This will place them next to Panda Express.

Has the cupcake shop closed up? They are no longer listed on the Spectrum Directory. Sweet Lorraine’s Cupcake Bakery opened last Spring. I had ordered two cupcakes and from what I remember, it wasn’t a “Sprinkles”.  I’ll try to swing by an see what the scoop is on Sweet Lorraine’s.

Another name missing from the directory is The Rustic Vine. Scheduled to open this past summer in the new shops in front of the Edward’s Cinema. It appears that they may have pulled out of their lease. It’s too bad, I was really looking forward to a good meal and wine pairing.

    I was looking forward to the opening of the Rustic Vine as well, however I can’t even find their website anymore. Seems that the Vine has finally died.
