in Business/Food/Local Roundup/Vacaville CA 160 views

Måkse, downtown Vacaville’s newest eatery aims to be a three-in-one: a cafe, steakhouse and speakeasy throwback, all next to the CreekWalk that runs through Andrews Park.

So far, only the cafe component is open as it had its soft opening this past weekend, but the remainder of Måkse will open in October, bringing a new eating experience to downtown Vacaville.

Mäkse is the brainchild of Jason Diavatis, who has owned The Loft Wine Bar & Restaurant in Benicia for the last nine years and saw a need to expand his offerings of gourmet food and wine to Vacaville. To help, he recruited his childhood friend Speros Pavlatos.

“We were talking about doing something together, and this opportunity came up,” Pavlatos said. “We were looking for a place where we could open a restaurant and we could be impactful in the community.”

Vacaville Museum Nut Tree Exhibit is a hit

in Vacaville CA 108 views

In July of 1921, the Power family started a roadside fruit stand that would become California’s favorite road stop and put Solano County on the map for travelers all over the country. The Vacaville Museum exhibit honoring the 100th anniversary of the original Nut Tree opened on March 20 of this year and will run until January 9, 2022.

The exhibit, “Nut Tree Centennial: 100 Years of Food, Family and Fun,” tells the story of the Nut Tree and the local family who, through a commitment to quality and innovation, created what San Francisco Chronicle writer Allan Temko dubbed  “an oasis of good taste.” The exhibit features all things original Nut Tree, including displays of the restaurant, retail shops and post office. The colorful art of Nut Tree graphic artists, led by Don Birrell, is displayed throughout the exhibit.

The exhibit was created by Museum Registrar Heidi Casebolt and a team of volunteers who were driven by one principle: What made the original Nut Tree so special and how do we capture the wonder of the Nut Tree for those that loved it and for the next generation?

On Saturday, March 27, a week after the exhibit opened, the museum had more visitors — over 150 — than anybody associated with the museum can remember.
