A new restaurant is coming to Pleasanton this fall.
Black Bear Diner plans to renovate the former 5,000-square-foot site of the Abhiruchi Indian restaurant at 5100 Hopyard Road.
Celina Gonzales will be the franchisee of the restaurant. She now oversees three other Black Bear Diners in the Bay Area.
Gonzales said she hopes to have the Pleasanton eatery open in September or October.
She thinks Pleasanton is a "good fit" for a Black Bear restaurant.
"I love Pleasanton," said Gonzales. "It's a place where there are so many families."
