AT&T offers Yellow Pages opt out

As AT&T prepares to update and distribute the Los Altos Real Yellow Pages Oct. 29, customers may opt out of the automatic service.

“We realize that some consumers’ needs for our printed directory are changing as their ability to access information from a variety of other sources, including YP.com and YPmobile, is increasing,” said Ralph Vitales, AT&T Advertising Solutions general manager of sales. “It simply makes sense from both an environmental and business perspective not to produce and distribute directories that are not going to be used.”

While the Yellow Pages contain residence, business and government listings; community content; coupons; and information for hundreds of local Los Altos businesses, many users concerned about the waste of paper converted to online services to reduce environmental consequences.

To suspend Los Altos Real Yellow Pages delivery, call (866) 329-7118 or viit www.yellowpagesoptout.com. Customers may also cancel delivery of directories from other publishers at the website.

New bistro opens on State Street

Nearly four years after a fire damaged the building at 233 State St., Plates Bar & Grill celebrated a soft opening at the Los Altos Arts & Wine Festival, replacing the former Satkar Indian Cuisine Restaurant.

Restaurant owner Christie West said the casual- and new-American-themed eatery offered an abbreviated menu to accommodate festivalgoers who wanted to brunch and browse, but customers were welcome to sit down and eat, too.

West is working with chef Brian Fernando to create a seasonally themed and unfussy lunch menu – salads, sandwiches and burgers that have special added taste twists – and feature a more upscale dinner experience at an affordable price.
