RESTAURANTS GOING AND COMING ... Some good news and some bad news for restaurant-goers: Palo Alto is losing three high-end restaurants next month, but gaining three new ones. Gone will be Trader Vic's at 4269 El Camino Real, in front of Dinah's Garden Hotel. The Polynesian-themed restaurant that was known for its exotic tropical drinks with elaborate garnishes is slated to close in late August to make room for The Sea by Alexander's Steakhouse. The restaurant will specialize in seafood and is a new venture for the Michelin-starred Alexander's Steakhouse, which has locations in Cupertino and San Francisco. An experienced team has been put into place to manage The Sea; some of the team works at Alexander's, and others have a long working history at both Spago and Fleming's Steakhouse, according to Alexander's chef and chief operating officer Jeffrey Stout, who will be chef at The Sea. "With The Sea sandwiched between our two locations in San Francisco and Silicon Valley, we feel this is the perfect location to support each other as a restaurant group," he said. The new restaurant is scheduled to open in mid- to late-October.
