THREE NEW RESTAURANTS FOR PALO ALTO ... Three new restaurants are scheduled to open soon in Palo Alto. The first is a casual eatery offering kosher items. Roast Shop at 565 Bryant St. has an array of kosher meats in its carved sandwiches, including pastrami and corned beef. Owned by the restaurant group that created Asian Box at Town & Country Village, Roast Shop is in the former location of Rangoon Restaurant. Also getting ready to open is Campo Pizzeria at 185 University Ave., the former home of Lavanda Restaurant. It will feature morsels such as house-stretched mozzarella and a roasted Brussels-sprout pizza. A mid-December opening is planned. And Freebirds World Burrito will replace the former Wahoo Taco at the corner of El Camino Real and Cambridge Avenue. Freebirds is known for its variety of 40-plus ingredients that customers can add to their burritos, including the restaurant's signature "death sauce." It has also scheduled a December opening.
