In our July 8 feature "What is Killing the East Bay's Soul Food Restaurants?" we erroneously printed some uncharitable comments about the former owner of Declancy's Welcome Table restaurant without confirming the information. Restaurateur Tami Rabb takes issue with a consultant's characterization of her as lacking "business sense," noting that she also serves as a manager at a Ross Dress For Less store. And she denies the assertion that she and her family briefly moved into her restaurant as she was attempting to keep its doors open. Finally, she invites readers to visit her new restaurant, A Taste of 581, at 581 5th St., in downtown Oakland.
In the same story, we also reported that the Caribbean restaurant Ital Calabash had closed. Although the restaurant's former Oakland location is indeed closed, new proprietor Ross Daniel reports that the restaurant's Berkeley location remains open despite its out-of-service phone.
