With inside work on plumbing and electrical moving along during July and early August, workers began in mid-August the outside transformation of the former Wilshire Market into the soon-to be-opened Fire + Stone Restaurant. Owner Jeff Smally would like to open sometime after Labor Day. Smally plans to restore the transom windows that have been boarded up for years to give the restaurant a bright, airy feeling.
