Shop Talk: Beauty boom in Midtown Restaurants, posted by Editor, Palo Alto Online, on Sep 3, 2012 at 9:55 am
There is no reason for anyone to have a bad hair day in Midtown Palo Alto. With the recent opening of two new hair salons, there are now a total of five salons, all on Middlefield Road, and all within one block of each other.

Headline matches 2nd entry of the article. Shop Talk tends to be a grab bag of unrelated local business stories. Hope Estrellita survives. The neighborhood economy will change with 1000 new residents packed in just across El Camino. When two lanes disappear for bus traffic, that area will become unnavigable.

I am not sure if this is appropriate here,but I would like to say that it was a great pleasure to have Zim at Midtown Hair actually LISTEN to what I was looking for in my and my children's haircuts, and take the time to check in with me to make sure she did what I was asking.

Oh,meant to comment on Estrellita's: Thanks for the heads up. The single best Mole Poblano we have ever had in 30 years of trying moles from here to Puebla was at Estrellita's 2 months ago. I didn't know they wer struggling. I plan to go more often, not only for their mole, but all their authentic foods.
Best of luck to you, Mr. Clark, and if you move, be sure to put up a huge sign telling us where you moved to! Raising your rent 50% in these times seems like a time to consider finding someplace friendlier.

No wonder Estrellita is hurting for business, finally the customers found out that Taco Bell food is better than Estrellita's. Who told them that they could cook Mexican food? I gave them three chances , all of them they stroke out.
Way better Mexican food at Palo Alto Sol, Fiesta del Mar ......
On the other topic, looks like Palo Alto zoned out the Midtown Shopping Center as the Hair Cutters Center. What a joke.
