FRESH NEW LOCATION ... Fraiche Yogurt recently reopened in a new downtown Palo Alto spot, moving from Emerson Street to a larger home at 200 Hamilton Ave. (which previously housed A.G. Ferrari). "We've been in business for five years and our lease was up," co-owner Patama Gur said, adding that she and co-owner Jessica Gilmartin couldn't work out a new lease with their landlord. So Fraiche moved to a corner location "with high ceilings and lots of windows," she said. New menu items to supplement the fresh and frozen yogurt, coffee and oatmeal include yogurt lassis and smoothies, dips, salad dressings and yogurt-based baked goods. Fraiche also has locations at Stanford University and in San Francisco. For more information, go to
