If you like to see your seafood menu list options in (high denomination) pounds, the new Cajun restaurant in downtown Mountain View will whet your appetite.

Crawfish Bros. opened at 124 Castro St., the recently revolving door location of Chop & Pub and before that, Shell Shock, East Street Tacos and Barracuda Japanese. The Bros. menu includes crawfish, snow crab, shrimp, mussels, clams and lobsters, with sauces that range from mild to “screaming.”

The vegan cafe HeyO Eats, tucked inside Ava’s Market at 340 Castro St., has graduated from soft open to open, serving brunch, lunch and dinner menus that are projected to expand. It’s open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays.

Le Plonc, the wine bar at 331 Castro St. notable for lower-cost glasses of wine and one of the only instances of comfortable seating in a local bar, opened an outpost in downtown Sunnyvale last month at 279 W. Washington Ave. The location formerly housed City Place Wine Bar. Le Plonc’s coveted couches and cushy chairs are also in place at the new location.
