Re: “Portal Owner Goes Pizza with Philomena in East Oakland

"yet undeveloped restaurant neighborhoods" Pretty soon that area will be so "developed" no resident who lives there now will be able to afford to eat at this pizza or (inevitable) brunch place. This is how an "affordable" (read: "less affluent") neighborhood gets colonized by white gentrifiers and turned into the next Temescal. Another restaurant for high-so's making inroads.

Re: “Guacamole 61 Brings the Meat to Epicurious Garden in Berkeley

What is interesting here is that this will be the FIFTH restaurant to open in this space in a relatively short span of time, and the SECOND MEXICAN SPOT. What does this tell you? That this food court has better offerings that are driving all the traffic there. Kirala, Soop, a gelato place, and a Chinese restaurant/tea spot. Nothing so far can last against that competition, and I can tell you that YET ANOTHER Mexican spot, no matter how good, doesn't stand a chance. There are plenty of Mexican restaurants in town, and apparently, there is little need for one in the Gourmet Ghetto. I give this place 6-12 months, TOPS.

Re: “Six Ways to Fried Chicken in the East Bay

Merritt Bakery is closed. Although someone told me they took over the old Kwik-Way drive-thru, so maybe they have their chicken there.
