After two years of watching stores and restaurants go out of business at Triad Center, tenants at the complex are looking forward to the opening of two new restaurants over the next two months.

Spike's Express, serving sandwiches, burgers and other items touted as "a click above standard fast-food fare" is scheduled to open in March in a ground-level facility at the center.In April, The Carriage House, designed after the original Devereaux Mansion carriage house, will open and will serve lunch, British tea and dinner.

Menu items will include exotic appetizers, main courses and "heavenly" desserts.The deck will open in summer featuring a mesquite broiler.

Owners of both operations are husband and wife team Steven and Candace Lindsey, both recently with Mrs. Fields Cookies.
