Sam's Chowder House Will Open in Palo Alto

Popular Half Moon Bay restaurant Sam's Chowder House is headed to the Peninsula, reports Inside Scoop SF. Over the weekend, owners Julie and Paul Shenkman closed their 140-seat Palo Alto Italian restaurant Campo 185 (185 University Avenue) and announced the changeover via a sign on the door. The Shenkmans cite a glut of similar Italian restaurants in the area but no major seafood competition as reasons to bring Sam's to the bustling strip, but they have not announced how long they expect the remodel to take.
